At work, we have a bunch of cisco switches and we want to save the running configuration. I'm no expert on this but had CCNA from back in the days. The biggest issue here for us is security. We utilize Cisco Network assistant and can to a certain degree remotely configure all switches. CNA has a configuration archive capability which would be awsome to use, but it seems impossible to choose the switches that i want to backup. We're thinking it might be because telnet is not enabled on the switches or the switches are neighboring devices in the Topology view..?
As telnet is not very secure we dont want to turn it on.
