Default PLease Help! -4548GT-PWR - NEWBIE questions

Hello,

I tried to read through the manual but I am at a loss. I'm familiar with configuring extreme switches but for some reason can't figure out a number of things on the avaya and could really use your help please. I'm fine with using the gui or the console. I'll try to break them into a few topics so people can handle the questions they know.

1 - show config - on cisco and extreme it shows you a great deal of info - is there something like this on avaya? That command doesn't seem to show me much. I've tried show config-network and it really doesn't display what it would on a cisco or extreme.

2 - save - how do I save the config to a drive or export it for safe keeping?

3 - show stpd -spanning tree - how do I show if spanning tree is enabled or disabled.

Thanks - I'm sure you are trying to be helpful but that doesn't help me. I"ve read through the avaya stuff and it just doesn't make sense to me.

If someone could give me the commands I should be looking for or far far better an example of what I should use it would be more helpful.

I do appreciate your attempt at helping but at this point it is like learning Chinese after spending the last decade only speaking English

show running-config depending on the release this will show you all configuration or just the delta from defaults. If you are on a later release then it will show just deltas. To show full config, use verbose qualifier ie show running-config verbose

4526T-PWR+(config)# show running-config
! Embedded ASCII Configuration Generator Script
! Model = Ethernet Routing Switch 4526T-PWR+
! Software version = v5.6.1.052
!
! Displaying only parameters different to default
!================================================
enable
configure terminal
!
! *** CORE (Phase 1) ***
!
tftp-server 172.16.1.30

To save locally, the switch performs autosave regularly; you can explicitly force a save using: save config or copy config nvram

4526T-PWR+(config)# save config
4526T-PWR+(config)# copy config nvram

To save to use or tftp, then you have a choice as to saving the binary or ascii configuration.

4526T-PWR+(config)# copy config usb filename myconfig.bin
% Contacting USB device.
% Configuration file successfully written.
4526T-PWR+(config)# copy config tftp address 172.16.1.30 filename my3.bin
% Contacting TFTP host.
% Configuration file successfully written.
4526T-PWR+(config)# copy running-config usb filename myconfig.ascii
% Generating ASCII Configuration
% Writing ASCII configuration file: myconfig.ascii
% ACG configuration generation completed
4526T-PWR+(config)# copy running-config tftp address 172.16.1.30 filename my3.ascii
% Generating ASCII Configuration
% Contacting TFTP host: 172.16.1.30
% Writing ASCII configuration file: my3.ascii
% ACG configuration generation completed

I am sure this is too late, but I am posting it in case someone else needs the information.
My favorite command when I want to know how the switch is doing is show tech.
I don't have access to a switch right now, but it gives information about the physical device as well as how it is configured.
