What about using cron to fire off clogin to execute 'copy run tftp' ?  That
would preserve your VPN per shared keys and combined with the config repo
within rancid, you should have everything, from full configs to serial
numbers etc.

Hi List,

I would like to do _FULL_ scheduled automated backups of my ASA55XX:
Unfortunately it seems that Cisco doesn't provide a CLI command that does
this, so I have to gather all the info from different places myself (with
the risk of forgetting something/missing something if the box gets updated):

- Does any of you have a working script that does this already ?
- Does it distribute the information to the right files and zip it, so you
get easy restorable file as ASDM:Tools->Backup Configurations ?

Or do I really have to purchase CiscoWorks to get this functionality
(thought I had already paid more than enough - and must admid, I really
didn't think scheduled backup/easy restore would be an issue for the worlds
nr1 network-company...!)

Thanks in advance :) !
