Back up BMC switch configuration

Before beginning the update procedure, ensure that the BMC switch configuration has been backed up.

To perform a backup of the BMC switch configuration file, follow these steps:
  1. Insert a USB thumb drive into the BMC switch.
  2. Connect to the BMC switch via serial console from the HLH.
  3. Sign in to the BMC switch using the credentials admin/<password>.
  4. Use the following commands to copy the currently running configuration to the startup configuration, and then save the startup (boot) configuration to the root of the USB thumb drive.
    copy running-config startup-config
    usbcopy  tousb  BMCStartupBackup.cfg boot
The BMC switch configuration file is now backed up to the USB thumb drive in case issues are encountered during switch updating and the switch needs to be recovered to the current configuration.
