The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

The Cisco Small Business Switches contain several configuration and management files which determine the settings of the switch and how it operates. These files can be manipulated on the File Operations page of the web-based utility of the switch, where configuration files can be backed up, upgraded, or copied. Files can be moved between a connected USB device, the internal flash of the switch, or the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) or Secure Copy (SCP) server. Storing these files in multiple locations can be useful in case you want to roll back the device to an earlier state, or in the event of a device failure. This article provides instructions on how to update the system configuration file through any of the following methods:
Step 1. Log in to the switch console. The default username and password is cisco/cisco. If you have configured a new username or password, enter the credentials instead.
Step 2. To back up a configuration file to a specific destination, enter the following:CBS350X#copy [src-url] [running-config | startup-config]
The parameters are:
USB or Flash:
Step 3. (Optional) To copy the running configuration file to the startup configuration file, enter the following:CBS350X#copy running-config startup-config
Step 4. (Optional) Press Y for Yes or N for No on your keyboard once the Overwrite file [startup-config]… prompt appears. In this example, Y is pressed.
You should now have successfully updated the configuration files of your switch through the CLI, using the files that are saved from the network server.
