Can I back up the ios image and config files of a router that is on production. hope it will not disrupt the operation of our network. i want to be sure of this before i proceed with backing up the ios and config files to the tftp server.
Secondly, one of the cisco 2800 series router we use in one of our branch office suddenly developed a problem, when i accessed it via console, i got message: "flash file cannot be found"
I believe someone tampered with the flash while the router was on production.
we replaced the router with a spare we had.
Is it possible to load the flash file from another cisco 2800 into this malfuntioning cisco 2800?
i agree tftp is unsecure. An alternative could be using Cisco IOS Resilient Configuration feature to back up IOS and running-config on the router. This is assuming that you have enough memory (using PCMCIA or ATA disk) on your devices.
