Scheduling a Config Backup

Hey Everyone!

 

I was looking to do a config backup to a tftp server every 12 or 24 hours. My configs aren't huge (21 kb at the time of writing this post). My routine right now is to log in once a week and run a simple:

 

<switchname>tftp [ipaddress] put config.cfg config.cfg

 

Is there a way to schedule this and perhaps add a date/time stamp to the destination filename for uniqueness? On a Cisco switch, I'd simply run a kron job.

 

Thanks in advance! I appreciate any and all help.

Re: Scheduling a Config Backup

With schedule job, you can execute one command, but unfortunately without variables.

 

schedule job at 12:00 view shell tftp 1.1.1.1 put test.cfg

 

But I suggest to use an external tool. i.e. Kiwicat tools is free onto 25 devices.

Cat tools, I completely forgot about that. Great idea.
