Automated Retrieval of Configuration

We have a number of Cisco routers and in order to ensure we have a backup of each configuration, we manually connect via Putty regularly and take a text dump of the config and store it on a server.

Is there a script / utility which will allow you to perform this task automatically?

Check out this program/solution....... Its actually pretty nice and works great. It also allows alot of flexibility for administration and compliance. Not sure if you have a decent budge for this, but I think the EULA is a per device type agreement....

if you have a tftp server & snmp tools, then the following will tell the router to copy the running config to the tftp server:


* PRIVATE is the read/write snmp string you assign on your router
* ROUTERIP is the IP or fully qualified domain name you use to access the router
* TFTPIP is the IP or fqdn of the tftp server
* TFTPFILENAME is the file you want the running config copied into (if on UNIX, remember the file has to already exist)
