Haven't heard of the command "show tac" but I also haven't run any PIX newer than 6.3.

I have always used write terminal (which is the same as show running-config) and have never had any problems restoring a config.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Though re-reading your question, are you simply trying to back the config up? if so see my website here http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Firewalls/Cisco/backuprestore.htm

The command is "show tech".  You don't need this for backup.  This is specifically for trouble-shooting problems.

Make sure that any changes that have been made are committed by typing:
  copy run start

Then do a "show start" to get the complete config.

Hi, you should use 'sh running-config all' to list the complete configuration, including default settings.
