BNA switch config files location

Hey guys, 

 

Looking for file location of the switches configuration files that auto saved by the BNA configuration manager. Currently running on Server 2008R2 and BNA version 14.0.1. 

 

My configuration file manager saves all the running configs but for the life of me, I can't find it's locaiton. 

 

Thanks,

where you saved those file and config ? and how have you configured BNA ?

 

BNA backup is in x:/Backup folder = where x: is you Driver Letter

This makes things more interesting.

Right now, the option set to D:\Backup. However, the D:\ does not exist on the server. It's only a C:\ drive. 

So, how does BNA actually saves the current running configs of all the switches?

the answer is simple.

 

you have mis-configured BNA by the Installation, additional BNA required - as per default - backup Foder must reside in different drivers.

I see; ok, let me change that to a network location and see what happens.

In the meantime, how does BNA stores running configs of each switch? where is it stored?

Re: BNA switch config files location

config are stored in the database.

in the folder /backup/database/summary is a events protocol

Re: BNA switch config files location

I still don't see any config files in that folder. It's actually empty; yet, I do see each switch configuration in the viewer. (screen shot attached). Am I missing something here?

Re: BNA switch config files location

again,

 

config are stored into a database in backup folder, and not as single file.

These path's are empty, unless you refering to SQL server database. 

C:\Program Files\Network Advisor 14.0.1\backup

C:\Program Files\Network Advisor 14.0.1\data\databases

I believe you don't read with attention my post.

 

1) backup folder - I don't know, and another option is unknown to me - MUST reside in different drivers, and not in installation folder.

 

2) the folder is emapty unless a backup was not started - by defauls 24 hours - or you force a to start a backup.

 

finally, I suggest to take a look in Administration Guide
