Backing up Switches and Routers

Are there any programs or tools i can use to easily backup the IOS, running-configs, whatever, on my switches or routers. I'm tired of manually doing them.


Re: Backing up Switches and Routers

Yes, there are, but the inevitable frontmost question is what's the size of the budget set aside to help relieve your "tired"-ness =D

One option is CiscoWorks LMS (LAN Management Solution):

Re: Backing up Switches and Routers

You have a bunch of options. I wrote a script for SecureCRT that will do it. You can also use PERL (I've never done it though). You can also use commercial products like Kiwi or Network Configuration Manager (great product) both from Solarwinds. There are also open-source options. Search sourceforge for Cisco and you should get a good listing.

Hope it helps.
