Re: how to make a backup copy of my router configuration


3rd option I forgot is Putty logging of output. it is sort of automatic; it writes all command that u do in CLI.

see option in putty

after selecting options, go back to sessions and login .

after that, go back to Browse and look for your file. u can open in notepad

Re: how to make a backup copy of my router configuration


send configs to tftp server once per every week manually or using script.

1. manual

copy running-config tftp://<SERVER_IP>/<FILE_NAME/

 

2. Cisco IOS Auto Archive Feature was introduced into Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4), the Archive command enables the administrator to configure snapshots of the configuration files. (research archive command in Cisco Doc)

 

R1(config)#archive
R1(config-archive)#path tftp://172.16.1.10/
R1(config-archive)#time-period 10080

-no mulitple copy and paste as u go and moving screen. if your config is long, u will not fit all of it on 1 screen.  plus, unless u modify windows registry to large scroll back,  info will be overwritten after few scrolls

 

advantages pass it to a txt  - are only simplicity and quickness if u have small show run.

Re: how to make a backup copy of my router configuration

Hi @unidadso ,

 

Another option:

Execute the command:

R# show running-config

 

Copy the entire result and paste it into a .txt

 

To return the settings, copy the entire .txt in global configuration mode:

R(config)#

 

Then, you just have to turn on all the configured interfaces:

R(config-if)#no shutdown
