Routers/Switches often get upgraded or swapped out for a number of reasons. Hence it is important to maintain the latest and history of the router's/switch's configuration files. This tool helps to maintain the Starup and Runtime configuration files of the Cisco Router/Switch.
Config File Manager provides an option to take scheduled backup of the startup and running configuration files of the Cisco routers/switches. It provides the flexibility to schedule backing up of the files on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis. Config File Manager retrieves the cisco configuration files at the defined intervals and stores it in the file system. The backed up configuration files can be viewed from the history.
Using the "Refresh" option the latest startup and runtime configuration files of the cisco routers/switches can be retrived. It helps to view the recent configuration files.
OpUtils provides an option to compare the configuration files that are retrieved from the Cisco routers/switches. The comparison can be on any of the following:
This helps to compare the configurations between any two cisco routers/switches and correct the erroneous configurations, if any.
All configurations that are made to the Cisco devices are finally stored in the config files from where the device reads and executes. The Config File Manager enables uploading of the configuration files to the device through TFTP server. IT administrators can make the necessary changes to the file and then upload this file to the device. It reduces the administrators' time when the same configuration has to be made to several similar devices.
The Config File Manager tool can be used to manage a cisco router/switch in the OpUtils Free edition. For more details on tools available in Free edition, refer to Free Network Tools.
