Copying ACS Module (ACE20) Context Configs

Unanswered Question
Sep 8th, 2009

Is there anyway to pull all of the context configures in one shot? Can I copy them from the Admin context or do I have to changeto each context and do a copy run?


I have this problem too.

I am trying to just begin the configuration process of the GSS, my SC knows about as much as me.. I sure could use some assistance! Thanks

I just paste a set of commands from the admin context which manually copy the running configs to a tftp server...once each context is done it moves to the next.

It is a quick and nasty way of making sure all your contexts are backed up.

Like this:

ace01/admin# changeto context1

ace01/context1# copy running-config tftp://

ace01/admin# changeto context2

ace01/context2# copy running-config tftp://

ace01/admin# changeto context3

ace01/context3# copy running-config tftp://

...and so on for all the contexts you have.

My problem with this is that it seems that only that admin context can reach my PC, and that's only over sftp. The other contexts are blocked by a firewall, that's why I was trying to find a way to copy the configs from the admin context.

Each context should have its own management access as they must be managed separately.

This is the idea behind virtualization...

So, fix the firewall and have a minimum config in order to access the context directly.

ACE does not have a mechanism to copy information from one context to the other for security reason.
