Use netsigt to restore backup configuration

Userlevel 3
We need to send a backup config to a switch , currently not on site , though trying to help out a fellow engineer.

The config has been backed up to Netsight..

Many thanks

Hey Rod,

If the current switch is not reacheable through netsight, stored backup configurations can be retrieved by using the Inventory Manager > Archive Mgmt Tab > Select the configuration you want to restore from the tree Archives to the left (open the subtrees until you select the configuration and not the folder) > right click on the file > copy file to client > save as a zip file. Inside you will find both a .cfg and .xsf of the backup config. Then upload the final manually.

If the switch is in sync with netsight you can restore the configuration through One view > Right click on the device > Configuration > Restore configuration. The same is valid by accesing the inventory manager.
