Back Up Commands(ACE,Firewall,ISE,ACS)

Hi Dinesh,

For ISE, to perform a backup including Cisco ISE and Cisco ADE OS data and place the backup in a repository, use the backup command in EXEC mode.

Before attempting to use the backup command in EXEC mode, you must copy the running configuration to a safe  location, such as a network server, or save it as the Cisco ISE server  startup configuration. You can use this startup configuration when you  restore or troubleshoot Cisco ISE from the backup and system logs.

backup [{backup-name} repository {repository-name} ise-config encryption-key hash | plain {encryption-key name}]

backup [{backup-name} repository {repository-name} ise-operational encryption-key hash | plain {encryption-key name}]
