TX1012-P-DC Configuration backup

Just been informed there is no way to download a config backup from this switch, or back it up using cnMaestro.

I think this product is stuck in the 90s, as the only way to do it according to support is if we setup a TFTP server.

Currently cnMatrix supports configuration backup via TFTP and USB. Release 4.4 (Oct 2022) will support SCP. We will investigate support for HTTP/HTTPS in the future release.

http/https should be bare minimum. But push config to cnMaestro would be ideal.



I believe that config from cnMaestro is incomplete, on my own device that I am doing a lab with, when I go “view existing configuration” I don’t see any power settings or password information come through.

Hello, please upgrade the switch to the latest 4.2.1 release. Which power settings are you referring? Thanks.

I honestly can’t believe there isn’t a download/upload config via browser option.

USB? Why is that even an option of first resort.

Why would SCP be a function that’s coming in Oct 2022 before http/https is added? This needs to be a function available soon for this switch to be taken seriously.

I wish Cisco would be as easy as what you’ve currently got available for cnMatrix, though I do see the benefit of HTTPS config download over cnMeastro.

Hopefully this is a feature soon,


Secure copy capability will be available in the upcoming 4.4 release (early Aug.). SCP can be used for configuration backup/restore and software upgrade. In the meanwhile, TFTP/SFTP can be used.


Is there a reason why development seems to be so against web based backup and restore? All this effort is being put into SCP/TFTP/etc when web based is what mostly everyone wants.

So how do you take a config downloaded from cnMaestro (spits out a txt file) and then upload it to a new device?

Any news on web-based backup / restore?

Hi, we will look into it.

Hi, The switch supports downloading and installing the configuration file that contains CLI syntax. Currently this can only be done via CLI command as shown below.
