Packet Tracer – Backing Up Configuration Files

Objectives

Part 1: Establish Connectivity to the TFTP Server

Part 2: Transfer Configuration from the TFTP Server

Part 3: Backup Configuration and IOS to the TFTP Server

Background / Scenario

This activity is designed to show how to restore a configuration from a backup and then perform a new backup. Due to an equipment failure, a new router has been put in place. Fortunately, backup configuration files have been saved to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) Server. You are required to restore the files from the TFTP Server to get the router back online with as little down time as possible.

Part 1: Establish Connectivity to the TFTP Server

Note: Because this is a new router, the initial configuration will be performed using a console connection to the router.

a. Use the terminal on PCA to access the RTA command line.

b. Configure and activate the Gigabit Ethernet 0/0 interface. The IP address should match the default gateway for the TFTP Server.

c. Test connectivity to TFTP Server. Troubleshoot, if necessary.

Part 2: Transfer Configuration from the TFTP Server

a. From privileged EXEC mode, issue the following command:

Router# copy tftp running-config
Address or name of remote host []? 172.16.1.2
Source filename []? RTA-confg
Destination filename [running-config]?
The router should return the following:
Accessing tftp://172.16.1.2/RTA-confg…
Loading RTA-confg from 172.16.1.2: !
[OK – 785 bytes]
785 bytes copied in 0 secs
RTA#
%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
RTA#

b. Issue the command to display the current configuration. What changes were made? The configuration
stored on the TFTP Server was loaded into the router

c. Issue the appropriate show command to display the interface status. Are all interfaces active? No, G0/1
is administratively down. All router interfaces are shutdown by default.

d. Correct any issues related to interface problems and test connectivity.

Part 3: Backup Configuration and IOS to the TFTP Server

a. Change the hostname of RTA to RTA-1.

b. Save the configuration to NVRAM.

c. Copy the configuration to the TFTP Server using the copy command:

RTA-1# copy running-config tftp
Address or name of remote host []? 172.16.1.2
Destination filename [RTA-1-confg]?

d. Issue the command to display the files in flash.

e. Copy the IOS in flash to the TFTP Server using the following command:

RTA-1# copy flash tftp
Source filename []? c1900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M4.bin
Address or name of remote host []? 172.16.1.2
Destination filename [c1900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M4.bin]?

f. Click Services on the TFTP Server. Under Services, select TFTP to verify that the files have been transferred to the TFTP Server.
