I'm able to export my Cisco Ironort M660 Config file through the admin web interface, exporting a .xml file.

Is there anyway to export to a .csv instead of .xml?  Through the CLI possibly?

Thank you

xml is still good to retain as eventually for importing back to new or existing appliance, it need to be in that format. dtd is available to ensure the configuration syntax is right.

E.g. The values in XML syntax are parsed and validated against the DTD located in the configuration directory on your Cisco IronPort appliance. The DTD file is named config.dtd. If validation errors are reported at the command line when you use the loadconfig command, the changes are not loaded. You can download the DTD to validate configuration files outside of the appliance before uploading them.

there are cisco tools that you can leverage - saw reporting as csv (but not what you want)

I saw this parsing effort to convert XML to CSV but nt sure if it covers whole config ...maybe customised it further ...need more help then

Also did saw the CSV is more for SLBL backup @ http://itthatshouldjustwork.blogspot.sg/2012/06/backup-slbl-on-ironport-c160-devices.html
or

But coming back to save config, not that in user guide Cisco suggested any csv format (pg327/328) not even in using "backupconfig" (pg290 and pg333) @ http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/security_management/sma/sma7.9/SMA_7.9_User_Guide.pdf

There is automated means for backup of config as shared in below but as wholesale not csv format though @ https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2066895
