How to backup Brocade SAN Switch configuration

Filed under: Brocade SAN Switch — Akther @ 5:23 pm

you have to take SAN switch backup regularly especially if you are making changes continuously.It will save your life in case any disaster happens on SAN switch. In this article i am describing how we can achieve this in one of the Brocade SAN switch.

We need a FTP server to take backup of SAN Switch. I have an IIS server and acting as a FTP server as well. You can use any of the free ftp software to do this. And the backup will be storing at E:\FTP folder

Now access the CLI of switch and run the configupload command

SANSwitch1:admin> configupload

Protocol (scp or ftp) [ftp]:

Server Name or IP Address [host]: 192.168.1.1

User Name [user]: administrator

File Name [config.txt]:

Password:

upload failed: Could not connect to remote host.

I have received this error,  upload failed: Could not connect to remote host.

Then i was searching why it’s failing. Found in Brocade forum that if we given username Anonymous and password Anonymous it will work. Tried this and it work fine

SANSwitch1:admin> configupload

Protocol (scp or ftp) [ftp]:

Server Name or IP Address [host]: 192.168.1.1

User Name [user]: anonymous

File Name [config.txt]: SAN_sWITCH_BACKUP_11082011

Password:

Upload complete

You can see the backup file in your FTP server installed computer home directory.
