You should back up your configuration in at least one of the following ways:
Store the configuration in Flash memory with the write memory command. Should the need arise, you can restore a configuration from Flash memory using the configure memory command.
Use the write terminal command to list the configuration. Then cut and paste the configuration into a text file. Then archive the text file. You can restore a configuration from a text file using the configure terminal command and pasting the configuration either line by line or as a whole.
Store the configuration on another system using the tftp-server command to initially specify a host and the write net command to store the configuration.
If you have a PIX 520 or older model, store the configuration on a diskette using the write floppy command. If you are using Windows, make sure the diskette is IBM formatted. If you are formatting a disk, access the MS-DOS command prompt and use the format command. Do not back up your configuration to the PIX Firewall boot disk.
Each image you store overwrites the last stored image.
Should the need arise, you can restore your configuration from Flash memory with the configure memory command, or from diskette with the configure floppy command.
I do not deal with service contracts at all but I do know there is a group in Cisco that deals with covering gray market equipment. Probably would be best to talk to your local Cisco reseller concerning this request. Good luck.
