Auto archive running config to tftp server

Is there any command to auto archive running config on HP ProCurve switch to a tftp server?

I'm trying to perform an auto backing running-config with my HP Switch E3500yl-48G

Re: Auto archive running config to tftp server

Hello.  Short answer is not really, there's no cron or job scheduler available.  That's typically accomplished with an external management system.  A very crude way to do it would be to "copy run tftp ..." and then "repeat" that command.  But that would only work while the session is running (console, telnet, ssh) and would overwrite that file every time.


Best way would be to use an external management system or write a simple script to do it.
