WAAS CMS Scheduled Backup

Unanswered Question

Is there any way to schedule a backup of the WAAS Central Manager to a remote server?  The only thing I can find is how to do it manually via the "cms database backup" backup command?  Maybe there is way to add a script or cron job?

Hi Patrick,

There is currently no way to automate this command from within WAAS.  You could, however, host a script on an external system that would access the CLI of CM and execute this backup command.  Another alternative is to have a Standby CM that the primary will automatically synchronize configuration and statistics with.

Do you know if this is a feature to be implemented in the 4.2 release!?

It would be very useful...

I don't see this feature in the 4.2 release, nor do I see it on the roadmap.  Your Cisco Account Manager or SE can file an enhancement request if you would like to see this in a future WAAS release.  If they have any questions, please feel free to have them contact me directly.

Thanks for the information.  I'll see about requesting this feature for future releases.
