backing up switch configs

I was wondering if there is any way to automate the backup of switch configurations? We currently use PCM 2.1 for switch config backups but I would also like to keep a txt file copy of the switch configs. Currently the only way of getting a txt backup that I know, to use a tftp server and the command:
copy running-config tftp 10.1.7.1 switchname unix

This is probably a long shot but I thought I throw this question out there just in case.

Hi Mike,

In PCM 2.2 (free upgrade) there is an "Export Configuration" feature which should achieve what you're after there.

You could even set a Policy so that this runs automatically at whatever frequency you like.

I wasn't aware that PCM 2.2 was a free upgrade. I'll look into it. Thanks.
