The “copy config” results in error “Destination file exists - file must not exist prior to operation” as the following error shows:
sp_ctrl (alvsupu07:5438)> copy config config1 to config2
Destination file exists - file must not exist prior to operation
The error is self-explanatory. The config file to be created by “copy config” command already exists. To correct the problem:
1. Re-issue the command with the correct destination file name
2. Use the existing destination file instead of trying to create it using “copy config” command.
