problem with automatic archive

Hi,

 

I have configured automatitic archivation of running config via archive command to TFTP server. I have done the same configuration on 8 switches, but 4 of them doesnt archive config properly, they archive "blank" cfg 1kB of size. If I use write command, config is archived and sent to the TFTP server properly.

 

Any ideas?
