Hello DASTAN  in order to move the configuration over to the new stack just use the TFTP command to copy the .cfg file you want to a server.  Then tftp that file to the new stack.  Use the command use config <config file name> to tell the switch to use that file.  Then reboot.

Using TFTp saves the config as a xml file.

Let me know if that helps

1. You have to upgrade all the switches in stack to the same software version

2. Make sure all are in same partition
3. Run easy setup
4. Upload the backup config
