Backup Cisco Mobility Express Configuration

863

Here is the solution to backup Cisco Mobility Express Configuration. If you are backing up the controller, you do not need to backup each AP. If you are working on standalone model, you need to backup each and every AP individually and the steps remain same.

1.Configure tftp as the transfer mode used to backup configuration. The alternate option is ftp.

transfer upload mode tftp

2.Configure type of file to be downloaded

transfer upload datatype config

3.[Optional] If you want your configuration file to be encrypted

transfer encrypt enable

transfer encrypt set-key it@dmingu1de

Here it@dmingu1de is my key to encrypt/decrypt our configuration. Note it down in secure place as you need it while uploading configuration.

4.Specify TFTP server

transfer upload serverip 10.10.10.1

5.[Optional] Specify directory path to save configuration, if you have already set your desired path in TFTP server then you do not need to specify here.

transfer upload path mybackupfolder/

Here mybackupfolder/ is the folder name.

6.Specify backup file name

transfer upload filename AP_configbkp_23_Mar.xml

7.Start downloading configuration. When asked, press Y to proceed for backup
