Software to backup config

Can you suggest a software which can automate the backup of multiple Cisco routers/switches? This is most useful especially when you have a lot (50+) Cisco devices.

Thanks.

Best,

Tony

Have that problem before but I don't like to use external software due to security. Luckily, Cisco added this archive feature. Now, everytime I execute "wr mem" it will send the config to an FTP server as hostname-0, hostname-1, hostname-2 and so on.

Just to add one more to the mix, RANCID is a FREE tool that is a little more than just a config backup application, it will also allow you to diff configs which can be a great post morten tool when some thing goes wrong :-

Not sure if this fits your requirements, but I use EEM.
