no iam not using DCNM. can we schedule backup through windows backup utility some batch file type utility.

sure, you can write a batch

sure, you can write a batch/perl/powershell/whatever script that will connect to your switch and then backup the configuration. You need to decided where you are going to back it up to, possible options include TFTP, SCP, FTP, SFTP.  For example i am backing to a TFTP server, my perl script connect to the switch and runs this command:

 

copy startup-config tftp://tfpserver-ip/mds9513.$(TIMESTAMP).config

 

TIMESTAMP is actually a built-in variable that will be replaced with the date/time configured on the switch.

can we restore the backup

can we restore the backup from the output of show running-config or we have to take backup only from  this command:-

copy startup-config tftp://tfpserver-ip/mds9513.$(TIMESTAMP).config.

Silver

sure, you can do that. How

sure, you can do that. How are you going to gather that output ? If you are going to connect to the switch anyway why not send the output to a file instead of capturing output from "sh running-config" ?
