I have a 2960 stack switch and i want to create a scirpt to download the config file to windows share folder .i dii it for all my firewalls and i dont know if it's possible to do it with other devices like my stack here .
Any idea please ?
Hi, you can use the built in auto archive feature. An explanetion is available here:
Otherwise you can write a code to connect into the switch using telnet or ssh, execute a show run and export the output of the show command.
one of snippet from my notes : (make sure you understand the script before deploying in live environment, test and put in production.)
event manager applet sync-config event timer watchdog time 86400 action 1.0 cli command "enable" action 2.0 cli command "copy running scp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/backup-config" pattern "Address" action 3.0 cli command "192.168.1.1" pattern "username" action 4.0 cli command "user" pattern "filename" action 5.0 cli command "backup-config"
I have given the script to back up from device automatically to SCP to destination.
If you looking auto backup from out of the box, there are many methods to do.
