Is there anything out there that will automatically grab config files from cisco switches?  If so does it grab the vlan.dat and ios.  Thanks

    Cattools is a free/buy product that download configs at an interval.

    I haven't heard of a product that back ups IOS automatically. Nor have I heard one that backs up the vlan.dat file.

    Check out Netdonkey Lite as well.  Perfect for automating backups.
