Schdeuled Backup in Cisco Switches

Unanswered Question
Jul 13th, 2009

Hi Team,

Is there any possibility we can schedule the backup of network devices with TFTP server (Solarwind Server) at a specific time as we have 300 N/W devices in our n/w and it is quite difficult to take the backup of each n/w device maually.

I have this problem too.

Yes.. if you have Cirrus network manager (now NCM with new addition), you have to add all your devices to Cirrus, provide with valid login credentials, and create a scheduled jobs from Cirrus for daily/weekely backup of configs.

I would recommend RANCID as the best solution. RANCID is a much better solution than Solarwind NCM. We tested NCM and found that RANCID can do a much better job. RANCID requires that you must know Unix/Linux but it is a very powerful tool
