Backup your Junos configs TODAY !

Cooper’s tip of the moment, ALWAYS backup your Junos configurations. Hate when a customer does not, your router does not have raid (unless it has redundant REs, VC or is in a Chassis Cluster :)). It’s a built in feature of Junos so use it! It even allows multiple sites, so if you have DR site with storage – Push it there too!

Here is the conf:

[plain]
set system archival configuration transfer-on-commit
set system archival configuration archive-sites "scp://junos@x.x.x.x/data/configs/DEVICE" password "bla"
set system archival configuration archive-sites "scp://junos@y.y.y.y/data/configs/DEVICE" password "bla"
[/plain]
