Re: automatic backup

Not that I am aware of, but you may have a 3rd party app do it for you on a daily basis. For example I use CAT-Tools for daily PIX/ASA config backups, you may check it out at bellow link.

Re: automatic backup

I can also vouch for the CatTools utility. Once you set up your various devices with the appropriate connection information (IP, SSH or telnet, passwords, etc) it is VERY simple to set up manual or scheduled jobs that go out and collect copies of the current configuration. There is a freeware version of the utility, but it is limited to a total of about 10 devices in the database.

You can use autoexpect. I do this for my switch backups.

what us autoexcept?

Re: automatic backup

autoexpect is a recorder for expect.

Expect is a tool primarily for automating interactive applications such as telnet, ftp.

It comes default on most if not all linux flavors. Examples of its use can be found by googling around for 'expect'.
