How backup Cisco router configuration?
Posted on 2008-06-25
Hi everyone. I am in process of working on our DSR plan. One of the components is storing our routers config files offsite so in case of a disaster (router explodes) I would be able to take those backup config files and load them into a new router (similar model that would be compatible). For some reason I have not been able to get the FTP to work and I was trying to avoid having to spend the money on the TFTP option. I read that it might be possible to copy the running config into notepad and just use that. So I putty'ed in to the router, ran a "show run", and then copied all the config info into notepad. In case of disaster would I be able to use this file to import the configurations into a new cisco router?
