CTC scheduling backups

Unanswered Question
Sep 3rd, 2009

Can you schedule database backups through CTC for the 15310 ONS?

Can you manage the 15310 with CiscoWorks?

I have this problem too.

When you said manage the ONS15310, do you mean CTC like configuration management? If the answer is yes, you cannot manage with CiscoWorks. You need to use CTM for the ONS platform.

Also, I don't believe you can do a schedule database backups through CTC. You can do this via CTM.

Hello jerry

It's possible to schedule Memory Backup for CTC-NE via CTM based on time period like crontab.

I mean run config backup every day?

Not exactly time.

I'm only looking for scheduling daily backups of the main configuration, just for restoral purposes. We currently only have 4 15310 nodes, so an investment into another product like CTM is probably unlikely for us at this point.

May be is it possible through CLI?... and then put script to crontab.

CTM has 'ctm' command, after run it appear


But what comman I don'r know...

You mean the command prompt on CTM? CTM is an application on the Sun Solaris platform. Is that the Solaris prompt you are seeing?

If you mean the NE itself, I am not 100% sure you can do remote back via its command prompt. BTW, the CLI on the NE is called TL1.

No, not Solaris shell promt.

CTM has commands




when I run runCli.sh I got java error

but when I run ctm I got


What is the command?

That is the CTM CLI. I don't think you can execute/send command inside the CTM CLI. CRON script is pretty much Unix shell command where after you are inside the CTM CLI, it is not catching and commands from the script other than the keyboard.

Since you have very small number of 15310 and CTM is not an option as of now.

You can write a TL1 script and put it in crontab.

Check the 15310 documentation for the TL1 backup command
