Is there a way of getting a copy of the backup configuration of a cDOT node running 9.1 other than FTP or HTTP to an external source?
Before I de-commission the cluster, I would like to get a copy of the backup config, just in case I have to rebuild the cluster. I am hoping to find out what the location in the systemshell is so I can hopefully SCP the file to another location. I can't get a FW rule created for FTP or HTTP but I can get to the cluster via port 22 and was hoping to use SCP to transfer the file(s).
Any methods besides the FTP or HTTP path?

You can although I'm not sure how supported it is. If you login to the systemshell with your diag account you can scp the cluster backups to another host:
lab-cluster1::*> set diag
lab-cluster1::*> systemshell -node lab-node3
(system node systemshell)
Warning: The system shell provides access to low-level
diagnostic tools that can cause irreparable damage to
the system if not used properly. Use this environment
only when directed to do so by support personnel.
lab-node3% cd /mroot/etc/backups/config
lab-node3% scp <whatever_your_backup_file_is> user@host_ip:/folder/
If you can't login with your diag user, you can view / unlock it with this:
lab-cluster1::*> security login show -user-or-group-name diag
Authentication Acct Is-Nsswitch
User/Group Name Application Method Role Name Locked Group
---------------- ----------- --------- ---------------- ------ -----------
diag console password admin no no
lab-cluster1::*> security login unlock -username diag
lab-cluster1::*> security login password -username diag
If you want to go the other way, scp to the filer to grab content, you'd need to do some scripting as you have to log in with an admin then set diag, systemshell to the node with the diag user and then scp. The password part for the diag user would be the hard part.

I was going to suggest SFTP, since SSH works, but it doesn't seem to work even though its listed as a supported URL scheme.
Cluster1::system configuration backup*> upload -node Cluster1-03 -backup filename.7z -destination sftp://user:password@host:port/uploads
Error: command failed: Invalid URL scheme. Only one of (FTP , HTTP , TFTP , SFTP) are valid.
Oddly, it will take ftps even though its not in the list.
Cluster1::system configuration backup*> upload -node Cluster1-03 -backup filename.7z -destination ftps://user:password@host:port/uploads
Uploading the configuration backup file.
