I'm trying to set up a daily configuration archive of our devices in PI.
We build 184.108.40.206.132, virtual.
While in Inventory -> Device Management -> Configuration Archive, I click the "Schedule Archive" button, choose "Start Time = now", and recurrence "Daily". When I click on submit, I then go to the Job Dashboard, where the job has status "Failure" with the error message "Invalid Config File Type::ADMINCONFIG".
We have a PI set up in another enviroment, where we do not get the same error. I've tried to reboot PI.
Any ideas what may be causing this?
Thanks in advance!
- Note that Prime does this automatically (archive configuration(s)); the nature of the error message seems to indicate that your setup conflicts with Prime inner workings (prime provides this feature automatically ; at least once a week, look in the Jobs section. to see if the interval can be changed if you want it on a daily basis)
Marce1000, thank you for your reply.
The reason why I wanted to set up this, was that I saw that some of our devices didn't have a configuration archived at all - so I want a daily job doing this, to be sure that we have config-backup on a regular basis. Preferably also with an email report.
Any ideas on how to debug the "setup with Prine inner workings"?
- You should revert to 'prime's automatic behavior' ; if there is no archive go to the device list in Prime and check the row 'Last inventory collection' ; check for error statuses if any; or and hoover over the 'i' icon to check why an inventory collection failed.
Possibly remove the device from Prime and re-add it; but issue the 'Verify credentials' button first to check that all access credentials for the switch were enterd correctly.
