The tool will update interface names to the new interface naming conventions used in the new devices. When converting the settings from the source to the destination, the tool will map the commands from interfaces in the source device to interfaces that would use the same role in the destination device. It will convert commands that are no longer supported to analogous commands from the newer devices. The tool will attempt to keep the same functionality between the original behavior and the behavior in the updated configuration.
The objective of this document is to show you how to use the migration tool to take configuration from a Sx200, Sx300, or Sx500 series switches and convert it to the appropriate Sx250, Sx350, and Sx550.
Step 1. In your source switch, log in to the web configuration utility and choose Administration > File Management > Download/Backup Configuration. The Download/Backup Configuration/Log page opens.
Step 6. Open the Configuration Migration Service Tool. The Configuration Migration Service Tool page opens.
Step 7. In the Source Configuration section, select the source device from the Source Device Model.
Step 8. Copy the text of the source configuration file to the Source Configuration text area.
Note: Ensure the source configuration includes the file full header section.
Step 9. Select the model of the destination switch from the Destination Device Model dropdown menu.
Step 10. Click the Convert button to convert the source configuration file to the destination configuration file.
Note: Configurations of features that are no longer supported will be removed.
Step 11. Once the conversion is completed, review the results in the Updated Configurationtext area.
Note: All the rows that were updated will be highlighted in the text area. Comments are added to the configuration to explain all the changes that were made during the conversion.
Step 12. Copy the updated configuration and paste it into a new text file.
Step 13. Log in to the web configuration utility of the destination switch and choose Administrator > File Management > File Operations.
Step 14. In the Operation Type field, select Update File.
Step 15. Select Startup Configuration in the Destination File Type field.
Step 16. Select HTTP/HTTPS in the Copy Method field.
Step 17. In the File Name field, select the converted configuration file that was saved in Step 12.
Step 18. Reload the switch to load the new configuration.
The instructions in this document allows you to convert configuration from a Sx200, Sx300, or Sx500 series switches to a Sx250, Sx350, or Sx550 series switches. To verify the deviceâs successful conversion you can use the command line interface (CLI), following the below steps.
Note: In this example, I will be using SG550X-48MP as the destination switch.
Step 1. Log in to the destination switch (Sx250, Sx350, or Sx550 series switches) and navigate to Security > TCP/UDP Services. Check the SSH Service check box to enable access of switches command prompt via SSH.
Step 2. You must use an SSH application in order to access the CLI. In this example, we will be using PuTTY to access the CLI of the switch. Begin by entering the IP address or hostname of the switch you want to access in the Host Name (or IP address) field. Then click Open.
Note: Make sure the port is 22.
Step 3. Once you have established a connection with the switch, you should be prompted to enter your credentials. Enter your log in credentials to the switch.
Note: If you get a PuTTY Security Alert, hit Yes to update PuTTYâs cache and continue connecting. In the picture below, I have not applied the converted configuration from SG500X-24MPP to SG550X-48MP, you can see that the current hostname is switche7141d.
Step 4. Type in the command show startup-config. This will display your converted startup-configuration that you have uploaded onto this switch.
Note: In the picture below, I have applied the converted configuration to the SG550X-48MP switch. You can see that the hostname is called Test-1.
