Use the Device.CLI.Send commands activity to enter the following commands at the enable prompt.


Activity Option settings:


[X] List of commands to be entered on device:


copy running-config scp://Destination username:Destination password@Destination HostIP/Destination filename





[X] Enter commands in enable mode


[X] Save device output to file [Specify the log file name here]


[X] Overwrite existing capture file


[X] Answer yes to any confirmation prompts


[X] Stop on error




copy running-config scp://Admin:Password@





The device will normally respond with the prompts:


Address or name of remote host []?


Destination username [Admin]?


Destination filename [Device-Config.txt ]?


which by using the %crCR Meta Variable will tell CatTools to send a CR (Carriage Return) to answer each prompt


Note also the use of the meta variable:

%ctDeviceName = Device Name
