Copying multiple files off a Router's CF

Hi,

I installed a new 3925 yesterday to try and replace and older 3825, hence i was burdened with the task of first adapting the config to work with the 3925 which had a different hardware spec, and then copying IPT files off the CF which became a nightmare when i saw the number of files.

I somehow managed to get through the config part, but failed to make significant progress in copying the files on the CF because they were just too many. I ended up doing repeat commands like copy flash:<filename> tftp:<filename>

Is there anyway to copy all the files with just one command?

I also tried using the SDM on the router but whenever I plugged my usb flash drive into it, the router does not recognize it.

Any ideas please?

Regards,

Femi

You can use the Tcl shell to do this.  See this thread for some hints:

Hi Joseph,

Thank you for your comment. I am not familiar with TCL's but I'll give it

a try and get back to you.

Thanks

Re: Copying multiple files off a Router's CF

If you follow the example in the other thread, that should get you started.  You can either use a script, or just enter "tclsh" mode from enable mode and type out the commands manually.  Let me know if you have any other questions on using the Tcl approach.

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for following up. I ended up not using the tcl cos I didn¹t need to

copy all the files at once. Got saved by the bell, but will try it out

when I'm done with this project just for knowledge's sake. Will revert

once I do so.

Cheers

Do you have an external CF card reader somewhere?
