    Dear colleagues, 

    I have faced with issue during process the copy running-config to remote tftp server from Mobility Conductor:

    (MMC01) [mm] #copy running-config tftp: 10.36.4.10 MMC01.cfg
    File not found: /flash/config//tmp/1681692777.log

    the same situation with mobility members with version 8.9

    Meanwhile, with AOS version 8.6 everything works fine
    Redirecting to Managed Device Shell
    (VC03) [MDC] *#copy running-config tftp: 10.36.4.10 VC03.cfg
    File uploaded successfully

    I suspect that there are problems with writing to the /flash/config//tmp folder? 
    Help me to resolve it, thanks!

    I see the same when I try this in MCR (MM) 8.8.0.1. Also, the running-config on the MCR does not really exists, which may be why you can't copy it. MCR has a hierarchical configuration model and does not easily allow to just copy a single configuration file. Also, if you were to restore what you see with show running, you missed a lot of config like all of the MD configurations.

    Check the documentation on how to create a proper backup.

    Also, if you have the backup of your MCR, you don't really need a backup of the managed MDs as those are fully configured by the MCR.

    Hi Herman, thanks for the link, now I totally agree that the running-config is not suitable for restoring lost data, 

    The best option is:

    (host) [mynode] (config)# backup flash
    (host) [mynode] (config) copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz ftp: <ftphost> <ftpusername> <ftpuserpassword> <remote directory>
