A set of instructions for how to save cisco configuration before they loose

power for a scheduled power outage.
parent 54b18556
There are a few things could/should be done to back configurations before the Ciscos loose power.
NECESSARY:
Save cisco2's MSFC (router) card's configuration. Unlike the switch
configuration, this _does not_ happen automatically, so we could loose
configuration if we forget do do this.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
snake> tip cisco2
...
Console> (enable) session 15
Trying Router-15...
Connected to Router-15.
Escape character is '^]'.
Router>enable
Router#copy running-config startup-config
Destination filename [startup-config]?
Building configuration...
[OK]
Router#
----------------------------------------------------------------------
OPTIONAL:
To be safe, we can save backups of the switch and router configuration on the
boss, saved via TFTP. Before doing this, make sure that
boss:/tftpboot/cisco-config and all of the files it contains are world-writable
(and remove world-write permissions when you're done.) Files _must_ exist
before you can upload via TFTP, so if you want to upload to a file that isn't
already there, touch it (and fix the permissions) first.
To save the router config:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Router#copy running-config tftp:
Address or name of remote host []? 155.101.128.70
Destination filename [router-confg]? /tftpboot/cisco-config/cisco2-MSFC.cfg
!!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------
To save switch config:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
cisco1> (enable) copy config tftp
This command uploads non-default configurations only.
Use 'copy config tftp all' to upload both default and non-default configurations.
IP address or name of remote host [155.101.128.70]?
Name of file to copy to [/tftpboot/cisco-config/cisco1.cfg]?
Upload configuration to tftp:/tftpboot/cisco-config/cisco1.cfg, (y/n) [n]? y
