You can easily backup the complete configuration of a Brocade FC switch through the CLI. It works similar to that of a Dell or Cisco switch, allowing to copy the configuration to a remote server. FTP, SCP, SFTP and others are supported.

Log on to your switch through the CLI, then:

Switch1:admin> configupload
Protocol (scp, ftp, sftp, local) [ftp]: scp
Server Name or IP Address [host]:
User Name [user]: remoteuser
Path/Filename [<home dir>/config.txt]: /home/remoteuser/switch1.txt
Section (all|chassis|switch [all]): all
remoteuser@'s password:

configUpload complete: All selected config parameters are uploaded
