Overview

Kiwi CatTools provides an activity called General.Backup Running Config which can use Telnet/SSH to collect config information from devices. The following information provides examples of how Kiwi CatTools can be used to backup devices using TFTP.

Environment

All Kiwi Cattools versions

Steps

  1. Create a new General.Enter command activity containing one of the following example commands on the Options tab.
  2. Replace the example IP address 192.168.1.200 with the IP address of your TFTP Server.

Note: Kiwi CatTools provides a built-in TFTP Server.

 

Example for Cisco IOS

copy running tftp

192.168.1.200

%ctGroupName/%ctDeviceName.cfg

 

Example for Cisco CatOS

<nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/>copy config tftp %ctCR 192.168.10.200 %ctCR %ctDeviceName.cfg %ctCR<nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/>

Alternate command for some CatOS versions

<nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/>write 192.168.1.200 %ctDeviceName.cfg %ctCR<nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/>

<nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/><nowrap/>

 

Note: To send a carriage-return, use the Kiwi CatTools variable %ctCR. See the CatTools help Activities chapter, "General.Enter command" section for more details about the Kiwi CatTools variables.
