Telnet is the protocol used. What command or commands does RME use to backup device configs?

Correct Answer by Joe Clarke about 9 years 8 months ago

The output from the device is captured into an accumulator buffer by the sync archive process, then written out to a temp file. That file is then moved into the archive location, and the database is updated.

Assuming an IOS router device:


terminal length 0

terminal width 0

show privilege

terminal no monitor

enable

show running-config brief

show running-config

show startup-config


Note: not all commands will be used on all versions of IOS or all router device types.

I don't understand how the output is captured from the show running and show startup commands then saved in a file(s) on the RME servers.
