SSH and Config BAckup

Is there an an issue with regard to configs back-ups if SSH has been used in downloading the initial config.

It seems, The backed-up router config, when used to restore, would not have all features like SA keys to enable full restoration.

regards,

Hi,

When you generate RSA keys, you can add the "exportable" keyword to the "crypto key generate rsa ..." command; this will allow you to export the keys later on. See the following link :

However, as far as i know, the RSA export feature is only available starting with 12.2(15)T, so check to make sure your IOS version supports it.
