    i use recent XOS Firmware V15.7.x and V16.1. every time i change something in the switch config i have to save this. is it possible to use an automatic config save mode like the enterasys switches do?

    Regards

    Matthias,

    A UPM profile can be created to trigger on time of day or even a log message. The profile can be set up to save the configuration once triggered.

    Matthias,

    Here is an example of a UPM profile, along with the additional required commands, that saves the configuration every 24 hours.

    create upm profile 24HR

    create log entry "Starting Configuration Script"
    disable cli prompting
    save
    enable cli prompting
    create log entry "Configuration Save Complete!"
    .

    create upm timer SaveConfig
    configure upm timer SaveConfig after 1 every 86400
    configure upm timer SaveConfig profile 24HR
    Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

    Hi Andrew,

    thanks for your reply.

    Is it possible to trigger the UPM profile every time config change occur ?

    Regards

    Matthias,

    UPM profiles can be dynamically triggered on log messages. With cli-config-logging enabled a log message is generated each time a configuration change is made. A UPM profile can be configured in such a way that when the cli-config-logging log message that is generated triggers the UPM profile.

    Here is a link that goes into detail regarding the steps to having the UPM profile trigger on a log message (EMS).

    Starting with EXOS 22.2 you can use a periodic config save:

    save configuration automatic {every minutes {primary | secondary | existing-config | new-config} | never}[/code]Does anybody try that ?!
    Any limitations - any negativ side-effects ?

    Feedback is welcome.
