Re: Best Solution for automatic backup of network devices

Hum , this question would be more appropriate on the RANCID website/forums

I have scripted some rancid backup solutions for tiny/small businesses.

First find out what is not working ...

is it the connection to the Cisco equipement ? (telnet/ssh)

is it the authentication to the equipement ?

Is RANCID populated ? (rancid.db)

are there errors in the logs ?

As for the BEST backup/automation solution , theres no easy answer.

Ciscoworks can work pretty well , if you need a complete management solution

Other companies do offer a good system too (solarwinds comes to mind , but there are lots)

Its also easy to script something up if you dont have financial support. google for "cisco backup script".
