Scheduled Cisco backups?
Posted on 2005-04-28
We have a couple Cisco switches, and a couple Cisco routers. Currently I back them up by either
A) Logging onto the device interactively, and using a command line TFTP to my TFTP server.
B) Using Cisco Network Assistant and doing a save.
Are there any free tools that will help me schedule this, to automatically happen? I'd like the running configs to be backed up once a week.
I guess a script could do it, that does an SSH to the device, then a TFTP. But I'd rather not write one, if something already exists.
