How to get automatic config backups of Airwave managed switches

Hello All

We have HP Aruba switches and I deployed Airwave recently. I registered switches to Airwave and it works great. I want to schedule Airwave to take config backup switches periodically and automatically. But I didn't find such a menu. I am not sure if this feature exists or not. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you for your attention.

Re: How to get automatic config backups of Airwave managed switches

Hi

As on today we dont have option to schedule Aruba OS switches config backup but as others said we can do on demand backup. This is possible to do and will be a new feature request

 

Thanks

Re: How to get automatic config backups of Airwave managed switches

To the best of my knowledge, there isn't a way to set a dedicated Backup schedule

If you have "aduit configuration" enabled at the group level, airwave should take backups automatically. I notice mine happen about every time a config change happens. (I imagine a SNMP trap is sent that triggers a backup)

If you go the device page in Airwave, then go to the config page, do you see any backups?

I can take config backup to Airwave. But my concern here is I want to take backups to another TFTP server periodically.

Thanks for the information. It is a very important feature, I think. Almost all of our clients who use airwave asking me that. I hope it will release soon.

Re: How to get automatic config backups of Airwave managed switches

Hello - I'm trying to do the same thing you are. Did you ever get a response regarding when this feature will be available? We recently upgraded AirWave to 8.2.10.0, but I still don't see anything like what you're describing. For many years I've been able to have a 'save configuration' script run every night, along with downloading a copy of the running config to a server, by using Solar Winds Orion - but we are no longer using that product and I can't seem to find anything else that does it in such a straightforward manner. Here's hoping we see this added soon!

Re: How to get automatic config backups of Airwave managed switches

Hi, airwave make automatic backup of switches at Nightly Maintenance Time (You can check the time in AMP Setup tab).

 

But it only will do when you change the configuration of the switch.

 

If you didn't make changes, it won't backup again.
