Summary of File System Commands

The following lists the available file system commands in privileged EXEC mode.

Upgrading System Images

Command Purpose
controller> cd [filesystem] Sets the default directory on the Flash memory device. If no directory name is specified, this sets the default directory to images. Permitted directories are:

images: The directory containing upgrade images ATS/scripts: The directory containing AP boot scripts backup: The directory containing database backup images.

controller> pwd Displays the current working directory.
controller> dir [filesystem:][filename] Displays a list of files on a file system. This can be one of the permitted directories given in the cd command or a remote directory referenced by an FTP URL.
controller# delete filename controller# delete directory:filename controller# delete flash: image Deletes a file from the file system or deletes an upgrade image file from flash memory. The directory parameter can be used to delete a file from a different folder.
controller# show flash Display the versions of the image files contained in the controller’s flash memory.
controller# rename old new Renames a file from old to new.
controller# show running-config Display the contents of the running configuration file.
controller# more running-config Display the contents of the running configuration file. Alias for show running-config, but in contrast to that command, this one prompts the user to press a key to scroll the screen once it is filled. This allows the configuration to be shown a screen at a time, instead of scrolling all the way through instantly.
controller# copy running-config ftp|sftp|scp:[[[//username:password]@location/directory]/filename] Copies the running configuration file to an FTP, SFTP, or SCP server, for example:

controller# copy running-config ftp://user1:userpass@server1/jan01config controller# copy running-config scp://user1:userpass@server1/ jan01-config

controller# copy running-config startupconfig Saves the running-configuration to the startup configuration to make it persistent. You should always do this after a set of configuration commands if you want your changes to persist across reboots.
