Backing up ASA configs, with the Management Interface turned off
We had to turn off our managment interface on our ASA 5520. Is it possible to save the configs by going out one of the other interfaces? I tried TFTP, FTP and SMB, but always get a "access violation". I created a file on the server, and gave it chmod 777. All of my other Cisco devices work fine to this server, but not the ASA. Any ideas?
Re: Backing up ASA configs, with the Management Interface turned
Of course, just do a "sh run" and copy and paste the output. It's not elegant, but it works. Is that what you were implying?
The second method, of copy-run-tftp, always fails, even though I can do it with a hundred other Cisco devices. The ASA attempts to write e.g. !!!!!!!!! but then it fails and says "access violation". Which, according the Internet, is always a message from the server.
However, I have solved my problem, and you have helped immensely. Five stars it is.
