This case describe how to implement cron job for backup configuration.
If you are looking for a way to periodically implement configuration backup on your AR G3 router, you have 2 posibilities:
1. Use assistant task and tftp.
Create the task to run cron every hour
assistant task test
if-match timer cron if-match timer cron * 0 0/1 * * * *
perform 1 batch-file flash:/tftp.bat
Create tftp batch command file and load it into flash.
<Client 2>more tftp.bat
tftp 192.168.1.2 put flash:/210235384110e5000081.txt
And now you have a cron that upload the router configuration file every hour on a TFTP server.
2. the second solution refers of using an FTP server and helps to authenticate the ftp user. We will use NQA:
nqa test-instance admin huawei
destination-address ipv4 192.168.2.2 \\\\\\ ftp server address
frequency 3600 \\\\\ Frequency defines how often the ftp test repeats in seconds, for example 3600 which is 1 hour . day.
ftp-username XXXX \\\\ ftp user name
ftp-password cipher XXXXX \\\\\ ftp password
ftp-operation put \\\\ ftp operation
Hope to find this thread useful.
