Automated backup of Nexus 5K running-config

Hello:

I have deployed some Nexus5596 chassis. Throughout the rest of my network i'm using the "archive" feature when I write the config, it automatically SCP's the config to an external server.

How can i do this with my Nexus XIOS?

thanks for your help

Automated backup of Nexus 5K running-config

HI,

Since an automated backup cannot be initiated from the Nexus 5K, here
are some options for a 3rd party application or cron job.

 

1st option:

you can use ssh and scp to remotely execute NXOS commands sent from

the host to pull/push files to/from the N5K.

 

Preconfigure the ssh key on the N5K for authenitcation.

 

Then something like this on the host that is doing the backup of the N5k

 

Host$ ssh n5k_sw scp startup-config

username@Host:/home/username/N5k_configs/startup-config-xxx

 

Host$ ssh n5k_sw scp

username@Host:/home/username/N5k_configs/startup-config-xxx bootflash:

 

2nd option:

you can configure snmp for this automatic backup

 

You can use following snmp-set commands

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.14.135
integer 5

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.2.135
integer 1

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.3.135
integer 4

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.4.135
integer 1

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.5.135
a "172.18.252.233"

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.6.135
s "test1"

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.14.135
integer 1

 

Substitute your ip addrs and snmp v2 community strings or v3 as
appropriate

 

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.3.135
integer 4  (running config)

 

snmpset -v 2c -c private 14.17.151.64 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.3.135
integer 3  (startup config)
