Timestamp of primary.cfg changes every night

    Every night changes the timestamp of the configuration file primary.cfg in our switches with ExtremeXOS 15.7. For instances, "show switch" shows that primary.cfg was saved on 02:40 am but there was no telnet and no "save conf" commands in the log. Is there a script which saves automatically very night the configuration?
    Thanks for any comments.

    My guess is that you've XMC running with Archives enabled@2:40am.
    Part of the backup script is a save config.

    You are right, we are using Ridgeline. Although telnet to the switches is not permitted, I guess that Ridgeline is saving periodically the switch configuration using SNMP commands.
