Cisco Prime 2.1 Backup Device Configuration

Hi

 

Does anybody knows how I can change the credential of a group of devices to archive all the running configuration?

And other question is where this configuration is stored?

 

Thanks for your help

 

regards

The Bulk update option has been started with PI 2.0. 

You can either streamline or change the information on the devices, or if you have another set of credentials for a different subnet, you could add that to the CLI section of the discovery profile and rerun the discovery. If you have a handful of changes, you can click the devices with a status of Managed with Warning and then click the Edit button to modify the credentials.

With Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0, there is now an ability to export devices with credentials directly from the GUI. Navigate to Operate > Device Work Center and you should be able to see the “Export Device” button as shown in following figure:

At that point in time, you can export the device credentials, change them using a spreadsheet application, and import them back.

TIP: If you need to change the credentials for devices in bulk, this method can be used to do that.

Importing Devices Manually

If you maintain a spreadsheet that has all the devices and would rather get started with that, you do have this option in Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0. If you to go Operate > Device Work Center > Bulk Import, you get an import pop-up as shown in the figure below:

The configuration is stored in the oracle DB in various table and indexes. Unfortunately, it doesnt allows to see that configuration from the server directory. But you can manage and view from CPI GUI.

Previously in LMS you can set default credentials, unfortunately in Prime the best and easiest way is to export the devices and re import them via csv

Hi Experts,
Has anyone made a backup of switches using a task from cisco Prime 3.x?

I have approximately 60 2960x Registered switches and it is tedious to enter 1 to 1 and take out the backup, I want it to be something more automated by saving it in a repository within prime or external, but for example I wish the task was like that.
Take a monthly backup of the switches (in .txt) and save them in your Prime storage and then export it or to an external server.

Is this possible? someone has done it

I remain attentive to your valuable support.

regards
Carlos P.
