Need solutions to take daily backups of 3750 stack.

Hi,

We have close to 100 3750 switches. We are using Solarwinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) to backup the configuration by running cron jobs using TFTP. However our internal policies require us to use only SCP. 

We ran into issues when using SolarWinds NCM to backup the configuration. Hence this manual solution. Is there any other ways to backup the configuration daily without using any credentials? 

Thanks

Raja

Hi Raja,

You can use the following feature to accomplish this:

archive

path scp://user:pwd@host/<device-hostname>

time-period 1440

The above configures the device to automatically export its configuration via SCP to the desired host, every 1440 minutes (24 hours).

This feature is documented below. Look for the "archive" command:

Hi Adrian,

No i have not tried, we don't have budget for that as all these switches will be replaced by mid of 2017.

Issue we have the cron job is the security team is blocking the tftp services running on the server which is failing the job.

Hence am trying to identify a different solution for the same until they are in production.

Raja
