Hi Slider,

Well, I mean if there is anyway that i can do a backup config all the network devices using any methods so tat at the end of the month, i will be able to get the configurations of each routers or switch.

CiscoWorks Resource Manager Essentials has a config archive utility which can automatically backup the startup & running config of numerous device types and vlan.dat if applicable.

It can use either snmp (RO/RW) or telnet/ssh to do this config backup.

Thanks Davis,

do you know of any free tools besides Cisco Works as we do not want to incur any costs ?

Thanks again.

we use NEDI. We use it for tracking config changes and syslog / snmp stuff. It keeps a track of all your configs in a mysql db also.

There is a free vmware application for it if you want to try it out quickly,
