Prime Infrastructure 2.0 sync config tasks

Hi,

I'd like to know few things about PI 2.0 config handling:

1. Can PI save running config to startup config on a scheduled basis? Let's say once a week on all devices.

2. Can PI save running config to startup config whatsoever?

3. Can PI download running config when it receives a config trap from device when user enters/exits config mode?

4. Can PI export running and startup configs to a external location?

Thanks!

1. you can created  your Templates for this ( go to design > feature design)

3. As per my understanding ,it works on syslogs  .

4. you need to manually copy and paste the config.

Hi ,

1.

*Scheduled-You can schedule when Prime Infrastructure collects the configurations of
selected devices and specify recurring collections by selecting Operate > Configuration
Archives, then clicking Schedule Archive.

like  minute ..daily etc...

3. ASAI K ,this feature work on the bases of syslogs .. we do not have complete support in PI 2.0 yet so I think bases on config chnage syslogs or traps ,config will not be fetched.

4. for tihs check the below thread:

Prime Infrastructure 2.0 sync config tasks

1. I was thinking of writing running to startup config, not getting the config from devices. This applies to 2nd question also.

3. This works based on traps not syslogs. The command which enables required functionality is 'snmp-server enable traps config'.

4. So there is no chance to export configs?

1. It can be done by creating a template as you said. And it works.

3. You were right, you need to set up logging and config download will work when user enters/exits config mode.

4. This is bad. I hope Cisco will enable this functionality in future releases.

I'm using Cisco PI 2.0 for

I'm using Cisco PI 2.0 for monitoring FWSM modules. FWSMs are discovered, modeled and configurations are successfully downloaded from them. I'd like to set up config download when a syslog message is received from FWSM. Syslog message is in fact configuration change event. It works for other Cisco devices (switches, routers,...) but I can't get it work on FWSMs.

FWSM sends this syslog message when user enters and exits config mode:

%FWSM-5-111008: User 'user' executed the 'configure terminal' command.

Can PI react to this message or PI currently doesn't have support for it?

Other Cisco devices react to this syslog message:

%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by user on vty0 (10.1.1.1)
