issue with backup command writing to tftp

IntegratedWorks

When i use the cli command to write an backup to a tftp server i get the following message and the backup failes:

 

Begin backup ...
Backing up [ASA Version] ... Done!
Backing up [Running Configurations] ... Done!
Backing up [Startup Configurations] ...
Copy in progress...CCCCCCCC Done!
Backing up [WebVPN Data] ... Done!
Compressing the backup directory ...ERROR: Required key not available
 Failed!
Cleaning up ... Done!

 

When i write a backup to local flash the backup is successfull.

 

The reason i would like this to work is that i configured an EEM script to make a backup every night.

 

I did a google search but coudn't find any post regarding this issue.

 

Does someone knows what the issue is and how to solve this?

Hello @IntegratedWorks

Search for this error may be a bit demanding. I suggest you try to use ftp instead:

 

backup location ftp://user:password@firewall_ip/backup_file.

If this does not work as well, you can try something more simple. As you said you are able to copy the file to flash, you can do :

copy flash:/backup_file tftp

Then, just create your EEM script accordingly.
