Grateful if anyone can help or share any ideas how to achieve the below:
- Perform automatic backup switch configuration between 2 remote sites securely.
currently we are performing automatic backup on a local server. I am trying to find a way to upload the backup config on a remote server.
If any one of you has been able to achieve this or have any ideas how to do it, it is most welcome.
Thank you in advance for your time.
I was going to suggest archive config , however none of the transports protocols (ftp, tftp, rcp) are secure. ...but surely this remote site is connected to your head office via a VPN, so the config wouldn't be in the clear to third parties.
The only other options is to roll your own script to pull the config off the switches using a scripting language.
Combine Python with the netmiko library, you could implement this in about 20 lines of code and have it called as ad daily cron task.
