Cisco Prime 3.1 backup firewall configurations

We have just installed a set of 5585 firewalls running multiple virtual contexts.

What I want to do is to back up the system context (the other contexts are managed separately)

Adding the device in Prime works perfectly and the configuration is backed up - almost.

What doesn't appear to be backed up are the security keys. I think either the system is hiding them or it is not running the more running-config command to export the keys.

Any suggestions on how to get this to work.

Thanks

Giles

You're right - it will not

You're right - it will not backup keys in plain text.

You can run a scheduled cli job using EEM or manually via ad hoc command to send a full backup (including keys certificates etc.) to an external server (ftp etc.) using the "backup" command.

Just as a followup - EEM

Just as a followup - EEM doesn't work in multiple context mode - so it will have be manual backups....
