    Configuration Backup

    Once the global and per-router settings are configured properly, select the routers to back up and click Backup. A dialog window will open up with the following options.

    The configuration files will be saved to the Server Archive Directory underneath a date directory, for example, <Server Archive Directory>/<Datedirectory>. Alternatively, you can specify a Subdirectory in which case, the configuration files will be saved to <Server Archive Directory>/<Subdirectory>/<Datedirectory>. This subdirectory is useful to provide a meaningful label/description of the contents of the directory. For example, you could have a subdirectory “StableVersionOctober2008” to indicate that this is a set of configuration files you may want to revert to if necessary.

    A progress dialog will appear indicating the status for each router being backed up.

    After backing up the routers, the status will appear to indicate whether the backup was successful or not.
