How to backup Cisco ASA with Inventory Manager

    The default TFTP script does not work for backing up a Cisco ASA using inventory manager. So I changed it to this: (just needed a few spaces for the return character to be interpreted.

    -- Use these scripts to manage Cisco devices
    name="BackupASA"
    desc="Cisco Systems ASA SSH/TFTP Scripts"
    protocol=TFTP
    --
    -----BEGIN SCRIPT "Configuration Upload"-----
    enable
    %ENABLEPSWD%
    copy running-config tftp:

    %TFTP_IP%
    %RELATIVE_TARGET_FILE_PATH%

    @receive 40
    exit
    -----END SCRIPT-----
    -----BEGIN SUCCESS "Configuration Upload"-----
    bytes copied
    -----END SUCCESS-----
    -----BEGIN SCRIPT "Configuration Download"-----
    enable
    %ENABLEPSWD%
    copy %TFTP_URL% startup-config

    startup-config

    @receive 60

    exit
    -----END SCRIPT-----
    -----BEGIN SUCCESS "Configuration Download"-----
    bytes copied
    -----END SUCCESS-----

    Put the script in your devicefiles directory on your NetSight server.

    I wonder if this same trick works for other Cisco scripts that do not work correctly

    Most likely!

    I have built several scripts now that work great with Cisco, do you have any other info about Cisco integration? I have came really close to getting the Firmware upgrade to work but not at 100%. I even finally have been able to get the flexviews I have created to work in Extreme Management rather than just the java application. After I am able to get the IOS upgrades to work my next attempt will be to enable the ability to see and historically monitor cpu, fan status and temperature.
