I posted on this topic some time ago and I can't find the topic. Our helpdesk personnel are tasked with port management (enable/disable ports). Apparently there is no way, even with CiscoView, to allow a user to save/sync the running config. I, as the admin, can run a "sync" job, but that is not good enough. I need to allow my port admins to save the config once they have enabled/disabled ports.
So what strategy do you use in your environments? The biggest issue we face is power. Obviously if we lose power for longer than the UPS can sustain, the config will revert back to the last saved startup-config (upon power being restored/cold boot).
I had thought about incorporating a switch "save" feature on my IP address management tool. Something that would use PHP/SNMP calls to save the config. I really wish CiscoWorks had something like this built into the CiscoView product...
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
2950 - nope
3550 - nope
3750 - E series only
6509 - I believe it depends on the Sup.
EEM won't be good fit. How about we look at a cron job on the switches? We'll have to check and see if it's supported on all these platforms.
