Hi,

Didn't got a change to go through the details.

Please check the vedio tutorial below for the procedure to configure the achieve command and enable auto backup whenever a change is made -

You can use a product such as Kiwi CatTools to schedule configuration backups, if that helps.

Ivan Pepelnjak wrote an excellent article on using the IOS configuration archive for automated config backups:

Here is what I found. Its a feature of cisco ios.

example:

Router(config)# kron policy-list Backup

Router(config-kron-policy)# show run | redirect tftp://10.1.1.1/test.cfg

Router(config-kron-policy)# exit

Router(config)# kron occurrence Backup at 23:00 Sun recurring

Router(config-kron-occurrence)# policy-list Backup

Did you read the article I posted? The IOS config archive feature is so much more robust than redirecting the output of a "sh runn."

hi,

the command path will not save the configs on the tftp server

Re: Scheduling backup of running-config on TFTP/FTP

That's incorrect. The archive feature's path command supports any IOS-supported file system ftp, tftp, http, etc.

Re: Scheduling backup of running-config on TFTP/FTP

Here is what I encountered when I was trying to do archive on TFTP.

conf t

archive

path tftp://10.0.0.1

end

archive config

.....

%Error opening tftp://10.0.0.1-1 (Timed out)

It is creating -1 itself (which doesn't exist).

I even tried tftp://10.0.0.1/ and the error I get then is:

tftp://10.0.0.1/-1

Any help would be appreciated.

Cisco URLs are normally in this format:

tftp:[[//location]/directory]/filename

Can you try that?
