Automatic Backup running-config

Hi all,

 

Is possible, using a script or any free software, to backup automatic all the running config in 10 ICX6430 switches? I try with Cacti but and cant configure the ConfigStore very well.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks all!

Re: Automatic Backup running-config

Hi,

 

Rancid is a great open source tool for backing up configuration, it can also be set to monitor for changes in configuration

Hope this helps

Re: Automatic Backup running-config

MIck.Day, thanks for help.

 

i install Rancid with this tutorial: http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/RhysEvans_overview_0.3.pdf

 

i have a problem because i dont find running backup

 

when try : "bin/clogin" , i see this:

 

[rancid@lipamn01vpr rancid-3.5.1]$ bin/clogin 172.20.2.105
172.20.2.105
spawn telnet 172.20.2.105
Trying 172.20.2.105...
Connected to switch_acceso_e.cabal.coop (172.20.2.105).
Escape character is '^]'.
telnet@ICX6430-48 Switch>enable
No password has been assigned yet...
telnet@ICX6430-48 Switch#

 

i think this is because login ok

 

the manual say:

 

20) It should also have created the file 192.168.1.1 under /usr/local/rancid/var/networking/configs this would contain the config of your device

 

 

But when find this file in this folder just i saw : CVS and inside dont have any with any config

 

[rancid@lipamn01vpr rancid-3.5.1]$ cd /usr/local/rancid/var/networking/configs/
[rancid@lipamn01vpr configs]$ ls
CVS
[rancid@lipamn01vpr configs]$ cd CVS/
[rancid@lipamn01vpr CVS]$ ls
Entries  Repository  Root

 

In my router.db put:

 

172.20.2.105:brocade:up

 

-.................................

 

Have any idea?

 

Sorry for my english!

 

Thanks

Re: Automatic Backup running-config

Hi,

 

Its been a while since I have set this up myself but if I remember rightly when you add a device to router.db in your instance

 

172.20.2.105:brocade:up

 

The middle parameter defines a device type in the file /etc/rancid/rancid.types.base and as far as I am aware the type brocade is not defined, may be worth trying foundry as type

 

I am no expert and beyond this it may well be worth while raising questions on rancid forum

 

regards

Mick

Re: Automatic Backup running-config

The Brocade switch is telling you that you haven't set an enable superuser password yet.
