How to export files from the flash to a TFTP server



Article ID: KB13461 KB Last Updated: 20 Mar 2009Version: 1.0

Need to copy the crash.dmp file from the flash to an external TFTP server


The crash.dmp file on the flash of the firewall needs to be exported to a file:

SSG140-> get file
flash:/burnin_log1 40960
flash:/burnin_log0 40960
flash:/ns_sys_config 6439
flash:/envar.rec 908
flash:/crash.dmp 131072
flash:/dnstb.rec 1
flash:/license.key 1078
flash:/expire.rec 66
(Sometimes engineering may request this file when analyzing a core dump on the firewall.)

Note:  This solution applies only to ScreenOS 5.3 and above.

The command syntax to export a file from the flash to a TFTP server is as follows:

save file <file name> to tftp <ip address> <filename>

For example to export the file, crash.dmp, from the flash, run the command:
save file crash.dmp to tftp crashdump.dmp
