    Hi,

    I have been using Debian 11 for management. I want to get config backups from the controllers. Bu SCP is not working. 

    I have tried scp with DEBUG options (scp -vvv ) but could not find any valueable info. Also controller doesnot show any info abous SCP. I am sure of that is not  password problem and also file exists. I can show that SCP can loginto and wanted file but then nothing happens.

    I can SSH to the controller, also. I tried from Debian 9.x version. No luck. It doesnot work either.

    Last of all, I tried to copy local file to SCP, also. On debian 9.x, it can copy the file but on debian 11, it gave "Unable to negotiate a key exchange" error message.

    I don't have an AOS6.x controller to check at the moment, but could try the following:

    "show scp" - to see if the SCP service is running
    "service scp" - from the config context, to enable scp if not otherwise enabled

    Hi,

    These commands are only for 8.x. No such commands for AOS6.x.

    We are using scp to a 6.5.17 controller tor backups. We actually set it up for the controller to scp to our server. Here is the line from our script. Hopefully thast can give you some hints to try.  We are using expect to script our backups. Remove ">/dev/null? for troubleshooting to see the expect output.

       $expect -c "
       set timeout 150
       spawn $ssh $aos_username@$controllerFul
       expect -re \"ssword.*\"
       send \"$aos_pw\r\"
       expect -re \"$controllerName.*\"
       send \"backup flash\r\"
       expect -re \"$controllerName.*\"
       send \"copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz scp: $backupserver $scp_username $backupdir/$controllerName\_flash\_$datestamp.tar.gz\r\"
       expect -re \"ssword.*\"
       send \"$scp_pw\r\"
       expect -re \"$controllerName.*\"
       send \"exit\r\"
       interact
       " > /dev/null

    This is a good point. We have been using expect. I have other systems and want to use one script for all. I will try with that. 

    By the way we are moving to 8.x and SCP is working  there. Most probably in a few weeks.

    Thanks.

    I actually use the same script for AOS 8. i backup out physical MMs & MDs. We have sometimes used an MD backup when we needed to RMA a controller.
