configupload file from old switch saved onto unix mgmt host.
Both existing and replacement 5300s at firmware 7.2.1g
Replacement switch powered on , given correct ip address enabling ftp to unix host

you can always use cfgTransShow to check for ongoing transactions. And they can be aborted via CLI cfgTransAbort
