FlexFabric 5700 Backup Config to TFTP in MGMT VPN-Instance

Problem: if you separate the management from the normal traffic on a switch you will usually configure the swtich via this mgmt vpn-instance and also backup and restore config files via this mgmt vpn-instance. But if you use the “backup startup-configuration to ..” it always tries to find the tftp server on the normal network Even after changing the tftp configuration with “tftp client source interface M-GigabitEthernet 0/0/0” tftp still does not work.

Solution: The backup command has no vpn-instance parameter, but the “tftp put” command has. So you can use:

tftp 172.16.100.100 put startup.cfg switchbackup.cfg vpn-instance MGMT
