configuration backup

Hello there!

how are you doing today, guys? hope you are all fine.

I have some issue backing up my configuration, thought maybe you can help me here.see my problem below:

when I type "copy running-config tftp://x.x.x.x/hostname.txt" router require to repeate tftp-server address and destination file-name. how can I avoid it?

I mean I dont want enter or apply same things twice. Can I copy running-config to tftp only by one string - "copy running-config tftp://x.x.x.x/hostname.txt" ?

thank you for your time and attention!

Re: configuration backup

the thing is that i dont wanna be prompted like that. i just want to
copy run-config with one command. because I'm doing it with TCLscript
so I cant asnwer prompts this way.  Do I explore my self clear?

Configure file prompt quiet command in configuration mode of router/switch then try with copy command

Hope to Help !!

Hi,

It's genrally a steps by cisco for taking backup in tftp,so better recommendation is to follow the below process for taking backup


CE_2#copy running-config tftp:
Address or name of remote host []? 64.104.207.171
Destination filename [ce_2-confg]? backup_cfg_for_my_router
!!
1030 bytes copied in 2.489 secs (395 bytes/sec)
CE_2#

Hope to help !!
