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 Configuration Migration Tool allows you to convert configuration files from previous generation of Cisco Small Business switches such as Sx200, Sx300, and Sx500 series to the newest devices such as Sx250, Sx350, SG350X and Sx550X.
The Configuration Migration Tool will perform the following conversions:
- When converting the settings from the source device to the destination device, the tool will attempt to map the commands from interfaces in the source device to the interfaces that would use the same role in the destination device.
- The tool will attempt to keep the same functionality between the original behavior and the behavior in the updated configuration.
To use the Configuration Migration Service, follow this process:
This article provides instructions on how to use the Configuration Migration Tool to convert a configuration file of a previous generation switch and update a newer switch using the converted configuration file.
Step 1. Access the Configuration Migration Service page.
Step 2. In the Source Configuration area, choose a device model from the Source Device Model drop-down list. This is the device used in the backup configuration file. In this example, SG300-28 switch is chosen.
Note: Choosing a source device model will determine the compatible devices in the Device Destination model area.
Step 3. Open the backed-up configuration file then copy all the contents.
Step 4. Paste the configuration file into the Source Configuration box.
Step 5. In the Updated Configuration area, choose a device model from the Destination Device Model drop-down list. The backed-up configuration file will be converted to be used into this switch. In this example, SG350X-48MP is chosen.
Note: The Destination Device Model drop-down lists the compatible devices according to the chosen Source Device model.
Step 6. Click the Convert button to convert the source configuration file to the updated configuration file which is compatible to the chosen destination device model.
The bottom notification box should display the Conversion completed successfully! message to indicate successful conversion.
Step 7. Highlight the contents of the Updated Configuration box and then click the Copy to Clipboard button to copy the converted configuration file.
Step 8. Open a new text file then paste the copied configuration file.
Step 9. Click File then click Save.
Step 10. Enter the file name in the Save As field then save the file to the file location (such as local drive, USB, TFTP, or SCP server) according to your preferred transfer method.
Note: In this example, the updated configuration file named For SG350X-48MP.txt is saved in the Firmware folder in the local computer.
You should now have successfully converted the source configuration file into an updated configuration file through the Configuration Migration Tool.
