This topic describes the example for exporting the configuration file.

Example for Exporting the Configuration File

Network Requirement

You can log in to the MM910 and export the configuration file from the MM910 to the PC, as shown in Figure 1-38.

Figure 1-38 Network for exporting the configuration file

Configuration Plan

Perform configuration as follows:

  1. Save the configuration file.

  2. Back up the configuration file over Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).


  1. Log in to the switch module command-line interface (CLI), save the configuration file, run reboot to check whether synchronization is complete, and select N. The switch module is not restarted.

    <HUAWEI> save

    <HUAWEI> reboot
    slot 3:
    Next startup system software: flash:/
    Next startup saved-configuration file: flash:/
    Next startup paf file: default
    Next startup patch package: NULL
    The configuration information of any other board is the same as that of slot 3.
    begin synchronize configuration to SMM ...
    slot 2: configuration is the same with SMM, needn't sync to SMM.
    slot 3: configuration is the same with SMM, needn't sync to SMM.
    System will reboot! Continue? [Y/N]:n

  2. Export the configuration file in the MM910.

    On the MM910 command-line interface (CLI), you can run the swiconfexport swiN command to export the switch module configuration file on the MM910.

    root@SMM:/# swiconfexport swi3
    Please check "/tmp/exchang/swi3/swi3.tar.gz"

    /tmp/exchang/swi3 is the directory where the configuration file is stored, and swi3.tar.gz is the configuration file to be exported.

  3. Use WinSCP to connect to the MM910 with the floating IP address and download the configuration file to the PC in binary file transfer mode.


    The file transfer mode in WinSCP must be set to Binary. Otherwise, the configuration file will be damaged. Enter the shortcut keys Ctrl+Alt+P. The Preferences window is displayed. In the navigation tree on the left, select Transfer, click Binary, and click OK.

    Use a cross-platform file transfer tool and enter the floating IP address of the MM910 to transfer the configuration file to a local folder in binary file transmission mode.
    • The directory on the MM910 for storing the switch module configuration file is /tmp/exchang/swi/swiN.

      The value of N ranges from 1 to 4, indicating the switch module slot number.

    • Names of configuration files.
      The configuration file name varies according to the switch modules.
      • The configuration file of the CX110 is 3_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file of the CX111 or CX915 is 6_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file of the CX310 is 2_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file of the CX311 is 34_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file of the CX312 is 18_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file of the CX710 is 8_1_1.cfg.
      • The configuration file for the 10GE switching plane on the CX910, CX911. CX912 or CX913 switches is 1_1_1.cfg.
