This isn’t a new tool, just newly discussed on my blog. 🙂
Building on the experiences of my other Python applications (namely the VRFSearchTool), I took this knowledge to the next level and created an entirely new application. Similar in functionality to the VRFSearchTool, the VRFBackupTool will back up the VRF VPN configuration of a Cisco router when provided with the VRF Name. Unlike the VRFSearchTool, it does not display any information regarding the VRF Name provided — it simply locates it among the index file, connects to the router(s) holding the configuration specific to the VRF Name and backs it up to a directory specified in the configuration file.
There is a lot more I could say about this application but since it’s been out several weeks now and I’m just now catching up on blogging about it, you can head on over to it’s GitHub repository if you’d like to learn more or see it in action.
