Re: config backup for 20 routers

There are a number of different methods and tools to do a config backup of routers:

1) You could use an application like CiscoWorks LMS or SNMS to backup the router configs automatically

2) You can use the CISCO-CONFIG-COPY-MIB via snmp to do it

3) You can manually connect to each router and do a copy run tftp or copy start tftp

If you are looking for a cheap solution - the Kiwi CatTools works well ( - I believe it may use the "show runn" command though
