SPA8000 configuration backup?

We are evaluating the Cisco SPA8000 for deployment.  I have configured a unit via its web GUI and have it working as desired. 

I have searched available documentation and also searched the web without results. 

How does one back up the configuration of this device?  I want to extract the present configuration in order to have it on file should hardware replacement be necessary or as a basic template for scripting changes to deploy multiple units. 

Ideally a human-readable text file or XML would be good but even a binary would suffice for hardware replacement purposes.  It's obviously possible to import a new configuration to a device but how do I export an existing known working configuration from one?

Re: SPA8000 configuration backup?

These are instructions from DOC-9905:

There are two distinct sections that must be saved separately, namely the Network tab and the Voice tab.

A. Saving the Network configuration of the SPA8000:

1. Direct your browser to http:///admin/advanced

2. Use your browser's save page feature to write the device's entire Network configuration to a single file:

IE: Page > Save As > Save as type Webpage, HTML only

FireFox: File > Save Page As > Save as type Web Page, complete

3. Name the file as follows: SPA8000-Network_date_time.html

Example: SPA8000-Network_Sep082009_06h44.html

B. Saving the Voice configuration of the SPA8000:

1. Direct your browser to http:///admin/voice/advanced

2. Use your browser's save page feature to write the device's entire Voice configuration to a single file:

IE: Page > Save As > Save as type Webpage, HTML only

FireFox: File > Save Page As > Save as type Web Page, complete

3. Name the file as follows: SPA8000-Voice_date_time.html

Example: SPA8000-Voice_Sep082009_06h44.html

If you want an XML file, type in the following command which will show the configuration in an xml format:

http:///admin/config.xml

If it doesn't work you must download the SPC tool and generate an xml file. This file has all default values. You must change every values manually.

Re: SPA8000 configuration backup?

Well, simply capturing the HTML of the GUI isn't really very useful.  It's a pain to parse and virtually useless for any kind of automated restoration. 

Your suggestion:

If you want an XML file, type in the following command which will show the configuration in an xml format:

http:///admin/config.xml

If  it doesn't work you must download the SPC tool and generate an xml  file. This file has all default values. You must change every values  manually.

would be fabulous if it worked.  It does not.  It returns 404 not found.

Some digging around found this, for anyone else who is looking: 

http:///spacfg.xml

This works!!!  :-)

Re: SPA8000 configuration backup?

Configuration can't be uploaded to phone via UI from browser.

spacfg.xml is configuration file suitable for provisioning (beware - it contain no passwords). Read Administrators guide to learn more about provisioning process.

The command is:

http:///spacfg.xml

to return the configuration in XML.  Passwords are masked.
