Cisco View / Save running config

Our helpdesk folks use Cisco view to enable/disable ports.  Yesterday one of our switches lost power and the running config was not saved.  Is there I can force Cisco View to save the config so this doesn't happen?

If not, does anyone know of a work around I can implement?

Re: Cisco View / Save running config

This config should help with your problem.

archive

write-memory

time-period 1440

What that will do is write the config and also archive it every 1440 minutes (daily) You can then view the archived configs by running the command

show archive

Please rate post that help.

Re: Cisco View / Save running config

Actually there are a few more options with this as well.

I would set it up to store them either locally in its own directory maybe called configs and put them on flash:

or you can send them off to a remote spot with tftp or ftp.

Also you need to figure out how many of these archived file you want to keep, 14 is the default.

you could do this...

config t

cd slot0:

mkdir configs

That will make a directory on flash in slot 0

next

config t

archive

path slot0:/configs/$h   ------the $h will use the host name for the file name

write-memory

time-period 1440

maximum 5   ---------this will make it so only 5 configs are saved in archive

Re: Cisco View / Save running config

Mike, this would work for most of my infrastructure, but I do have some older 2950 switches.  I can't use this solution for those switches.  Is there simply not a Ciscoworks solution available?

Re: Cisco View / Save running config

I am not well versed with Cisco Works so I am not sure. I will check a couple things.
