Hi All,

I am looking for a cisco config backup software which can track the config changes and save the configs while I do the changes.

I guess CiscoNetflow can suit my requirement.But are there any other cisco specific softwares?

Can someone let me know

NetFlow has nothing to do with configuration change tracking or config backups. NetFlow is a traffic accounting and performance and security monitoring technology built into Cisco devices.

What you want is CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution with the Resource Manager Essentials tool. This application can poll for configuration changes, and retain multiple configuration backups. More details about LMS can be found at .
