Modify the Cisco-SaveDeviceConfigToFile.py

Hi!

How could I modify the Cisco-SaveDeviceConfigToFile.py script to use "show running-config all", because it would be more suitable for me?

Consider I don't have any clue about Python...

Thanks in advance!

Hi SchwabenGeiz,

I think you will need to alter line 266:

Code:
        strCmd = "show " + g_strConfigToSave + "-config\r"
to:

Code:
        strCmd = "show " + g_strConfigToSave + "-config all\r"
The script author is not available today but he will post a correction if I got it wrong (and sorry if I did).

Hi bgagnon,

thanks for your reply!

I have tried it out, but I can not save the config as file, because the dialogue isn't showing and I need to cancel the script manually.

Do you have an idea why? Jake, could you please help?

Thank you in advance!

Hi SchwabenGeiz,

What dialog is not showing?

Are you referring to the Browse() function?

What error do you get when you choose Cancel from the Script menu?

The Choose where to save your running-config dialog is not popping up.

I'm not reffering to anything within the Python code, because I do not have a clue about it

Firstly, the listed running-config is not ending with term len 38 and term width 185 like usually when I'm using the script.

After cancelling the script manually, there is error message:
Script Cancelled
File:
C:\Users...
Line: 270




Thank you in advance!

Hi SchwabenGeiz,

So that is this line:
Code:
            objTab.Screen.WaitForString("Current configuration : ")
When you do this manually, after running the command show running-config all, what do the last lines of output look like?

That's what you will want to change the WaitForString() to.

The line following is used to mark the end of info that is not written to the file:
Code:
            nBytes = objTab.Screen.ReadString(" bytes\r\n")
If, because you are showing all the configs, you want to capture everything to the file from the time you run the show command until the resulting output is done, then you might just comment out that entire block from line 269 to 278.

Hi SchwabenGeiz,

There have been some updates made to the original script here that should help you accomplish your objective.

Hi bgagnon,

it's working as a charm right now!

The script looks like this right now (line 269+270):
Code:
        if g_strConfigToSave == "running":
            objTab.Screen.WaitForString("Current configuration with default configurations exposed : ")
Everything else remained unchanged.

Of course I will try the new version with additional arguments.
Thanks for your help!
