Is there a way to automate a backup process where the router or switch will send the running config to an external tftp server at a specified time every week? Or do I need to create create a batch process on a tftp server to get the configs from each router that I specify.

When you say 'external' tftp server do you mean not a CiscoWorks 2000 server.

If you just mean any tftp server, you can use the RME package in Cisco Works LMS.

It contains a tftp server as one of it's core processes, and also a syslog server/analysis tool. RME contains a config maintenance utility, which will listen to syslog config change messages and go and retrieve the latest config, even if it more or less frequent than a weekly interval.

I talked to one of the guys here that implemented Cisco Works 2000 and he said a copy of the config is updated in Cisco Works when ever a change is made to any router or switch. I was wondering how to set this up with out Cisco works 2000 incase that box ever crashes. I want to have all the configs backed up on another file server seperate of CW2K.

Check out Kiwi CatTools. It runs on a PC/Server and can go out and save all your configs at once. If you register, then you can schedule the backups. It will also keep a directory of current configs and an archived directory. It's the best program I've found out there (without spening the Cisco bucks).
