RE: How to save configuration files from Switch to tftp Server

Jump to solution

Good afternoon.
I would like to run a script that would copy my run-config to a TFTP server.
I need to do is set this up so it can run unattended via Cron or another process available in Dell Switches.
Are any process to run that copy command once a day?

Thanks in advance.

The newer N-series switches offer some Python scripting, the issue is with the scheduling. The switch is able to set the script to run on a select few triggers, such as on boot. But I have not seen anything that would let you schedule a specific time.

I was able to successfully use a VBScript to open putty, initiate an SSH connection, log into a switch and then run any command you want.

The same results can be achieved on a Linux box using expect.

Someone from the SpiceWorks community just posted up this PowerShell script that may be useful.
