archive - change date format for tftp path

Hi NG,

HW: WS-C2960S-48FPS-L

IOS: c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-58.SE1.bin

config:

archive

log config

logging enable

logging size 10

notify syslog contenttype plaintext

hidekeys

path tftp://IP.IP.IP.IP/path/$h.cfg

now show archive shows me following:

sh archive:

The next archive file will be named tftp://IP.IP.IP.IP/path/hostname.cfg-<timestamp>-0

a) what if i do not wish to have the timestamp appended?

if i specify the path like following i can atleast choose where the timestamp is inserted:

path tftp://IP.IP.IP.IP/path/$h__$t.cfg


now the file received on the tftp server looks like the following:

hostname__Jul--1-18-48-20.cfg-0

i don't like the format, is there any way to change or set it manually?

if not, i come back to question a), can i somehow turn it off?

thank you

Bad news all around.  First, the archive code now always inserts the timestamp.  The timestamp format cannot be changed.

I could not find any requests or bugs relating to making the date format customizable.

thanks joseph,

do you know if there are plans in order to have a customizable timestamp format such as

dd/mm/yyyy MIN/SEC done via variables?

thank you

thanks for looking it up, much appreciated.

 

 

The overall s***y format cannot be changed, but the 'service timestamps log' can change some of what gets logged.

I would find the people responsible and fire them.  While I commend the adding of a timestamp, the absolute lack of control over it's format and usage is absolutely horrible.  Who in their right mind thinks that's a good format? Add to it, there's no way to turn off the now completely unnecessary revision tag. (the "-#" at the end.)

If I had a covered (read: non-EOL'd) device, you bet there'd be bugs logged against it.
