cDOT Config Backup?

nisarsayed

I would like to know if there's a command or tool to backup cDOT configuration. Something similar to "config dump -v" under 7-mode.

This is already done on a regular scheduled interval. This occurs every 8 hours, daily and weekly.

The schedule is not modifiable. Backups can be offloaded to a remote server:

To backup the configuration

     system configuration backup settings modify -destination ftp://10.0.0.1 -username anonymous

Just keep in mind that Ontap will continue to upload files, you will need to delete them or it will fill the destination.

By default Ontap copies the configuration to each node, the only reason to set it the another place is for a total disaster of the cluster.
