Save, rollback configuration tool

Unanswered Question
Sep 9th, 2009

Hi folks,

What do you use or suggest if I want to save running-config on my Cisco routers and switches? My intention is to save current and past configurations and allow me to rollback, restore, etc changes in case of crashes or issues.

is CiscoWorks the right tool for this?

I have this problem too.

IOS also has a built-in config archive function which allows you to periodically save configuration snapshots, show configuration diffs, and rollback to past configurations. More information is available from .
