for weekly backup, your config should be:

ip tftp source-interface "fill_in_interface"

The archiving commands are:

archive
log config
  logging enable
  logging size 200
(<= This is the number of "comands issued by user X" that is saved in memory (if you use AAA, you can trace who changed what))
path tftp://IP_address/filename.txt
write-memory
(<= The config is saved to the tftp server if you perform a "write memory" or a "copy run start")
time-period 10800
(<= 10800 saves your config weekly, this is good enough if your network doesn't change daily).

but I prefer to use FTP as you can protect it with a username/password, if you use FTP it will look like:

ip ftp source-interface "fill_in_interface"

ip ftp username "username"

ip ftp password "password"

service password-encryption

archive
  log config
   logging enable
   logging size 200
(<= This is the number of "last comands issued by user X" is saved in memory (if you use AAA, you can trace who changed what))
  path ftp://IP_address/filename.txt
  write-memory
(<= The config is saved to the tftp server if you use a "write memory" or a "copy run start")
  time-period 10800
(<= 10800 saves your config weekly, this is good enough if your network doesn't change daily).

as you can see: I prefer to use time-priod & write-memory both in my config.

In case your collegue "forgets" to save the config, it is at least saved weekly :-)

Hi,

yes, I understand.

But then you've got many config copies with no change in fact.

Each solution has pros and cons :-)
