Issues with tftp and running config backups.

I just recently setup Solar Winds tftp and am using the following commands below to backup my running config to tftp. They do upload to the tftp but every day as a new config is written it's in a numbered seq. (ie-3900-switch backup 1, 3900-switch backup 2, 3900-switch backup 3, etc). I've checked all the settings on the tftp, and they all look correct. Is there something I'm missing??? I would like the daily backup to overwrite the previous one.

Thanks in advance!

archive

log config

logging enable

logging size 200

Hi,

as a workaround you coul use kron instead of the archive feature.

Here's an example

kron occurrence backup at 00:00 sun recurring

policy-list backup

!

kron policy-list backup

wr

show running-config | redirect tftp:///

Alain
