Everyone. I am new to the whole extreme switch thing and switches in generally. What is the easiest way to modify a backup configuration. We have approximately 25 Extreme Switches that are running very similar configurations. I will like to modify the configuration withe the correct values and import it into another switch. Any ideas?

Are you using Extreme's NMS Ridgeline? You can write scripts there and apply the configuration changes everywhere. If not, your best bet is writing a script in a linux box or something like that. (from ethernet)

ridgeline. you can download this from the extreme portal. 10-base license is free :-)
otherwise export bck config by tftp and modify with your favorite txt editor. (from LNU)

Ridgeline 4.0 as mentioned in earlier posts is available at xkit.extremenetworks.com Also, you could download the config and modify with notepad or notepad++ and once you tftp the config as an .xsf file back to the switch you could use load script command to call that filename. Below is an example after you put an Ipaddress on the mgmt interface. if you use any other vlan specify the VR in your tftp command.

config mgmt ipa x.x.x.x/x
tftp get x.x.x.x remotefilename "localfilename.xsf"
load script "localfilename.xsf"
