Location of Switch Config Files after Archive Job

I am looking at LMS3.0 to see how it might help us manage our Cisco infrastructure. What I am trying to do is backup the switch running configs daily. Currently we are using CatTools, but since the LMS3.0 is supposedly much improved over the 2.2 that we used a few years back I want to see how LMS would do the same thing. I have gotten an archive job to run, but where does LMS save the config files at. What I would like to see is the plain text running config of the switch. This would allow me to recover a switch much quicker in case of problems. I have looked and am unable to find this file. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Location of Switch Config Files after Archive Job

What you want is the shadow directory. This will hold the latest config for each device indexed by device type and name. The configs in this directory are suitable for pushing out to devices. The shadow directory can be found under NMSROOT\files\rme\dcma\shadow on Windows and /var/adm/CSCOpx/files/rme/dcma/shadow on Solaris.
