RME and vlan.dat retrieval

Can RME retrieve the vlan.dat file using something other than TFTP? Will SCP or RCP work?

The reason I ask is that we communicate through a third party controlled firewall that won't allow TFTP.

Cheers

Re: RME and vlan.dat retrieval

The user guide is correct. RME will telnet or SSH to the device to issue the copy command. However, the actually copy of the file is always done using TFTP.

Re: RME and vlan.dat retrieval

I believe that RME uses telnet or ssh according to which you have configured in Common Services. This is according to the RME User Guide Chapter 8 which states, in part: "The configuration archive uses Telnet/SSH to gather the module configurations of Catalyst 5000 family devices and vlan.dat file in case of Catalyst IOS switches"

To specify your preferred transport protocol, go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management and add the protocols such as ssh that you wish to use. Make sure that your device(s) are configured to use the alternative protocol.

Re: RME and vlan.dat retrieval

Currently, there is no way to use a protocol other than TFTP to fetch the vlan.dat. However, I have just filed an enhancement request to add both SCP and RCP support, and work is already underway to implement that for the release following LMS 3.2. The bug is CSCsz66704.

Joe,

So the User Guide as currently written is incorrect?
