SGE2010 How do I trigger backups via SNMP?

Postby Guest » Thu Nov 18, 2010 1:20 am

Hi there,

 

I have been trying, so far unsucessfully, to trigger backups to a TFTP server of our SGE201 switches. I have testesd TFTP backups via the web interface, and that does work. I need SNMP as I  need a scriptable method to trgiger the backups on a regular schedule. I am running the SNMP query from a RedHat Linux server. So far I have the following query work out, but it is failing:

 

snmpset -v 1 -c COMMUNITY SWITCH.MGMT.IP.ADDRESS 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.7 i 2 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.8 i 3  1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.9 a TFTP.SERVER.IP.ADDRESS 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.11 s FILENAME 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.17 i 4

 

The error I am getting is generic, and the same query failed on multiple switches running Software Version 3.0.0.18. The switch is set with the community having full SNMP-admin access from the servers IP address.

 

If anyone here has been able to run SNMP triggered backups and would be willing to post their query and/or software that would be greatly appreciated. Any other suggestions, comments or advice is equally welcome. Thank you for your time.

Jeff,

 

The procedure to download or upgrade the config via SNMP is as follows:

 

1) Download the MIB files we officially released from cisco.com

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=282414069&flowid=3650&softwareid=283415684&release=3.0.0&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

2) Compile the MIB files on MIB browser e.g. MG-SOFT, SilverCreek. Make sure there is no compilation errors.

3) Configure SNMPv2 or SNMPv3 accordingly on SGE2010 switch

4) Look for CISCOSBCopy.mib file.

The OID is SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises(1.3.6.1.4.1).cisco(9).otherEnterpise(6).ciscosb(1).odm1(101).CISCOSBCopy(87)

Using rlCopyTable(2), create an new entry on this particular table:

    a. rlCopyRowStatus: 4 (createAndgo)

   b. rlCopySourceLocation: 1  (local)
    c. rlCopySourceIpAddress: 0.0.0.0

    d. rlCopySourceUnitNumber: 1
    e. rlCopySourceFileName: (blank)
    f. rlCopySourceFileType: 3 (startup config), 2 is for running config


    g. rlCopyDestinationLocation: 3 (tftp)
    h. rlCopyDestinationIpAddress: 192.168.10.22 (tftp server ip)

    i. rlCopyDestinationUnitNumber: 1
    j. rlCopyDestinationFileName:  0x61:62:63 (in hex, abc)

By doing that, it should able to backup device startup config from device to remove tftp server.

Thank you,

 

Do you also have any particular recommendations for a command line Linux client to do this? I need something that is scriptable so it can be run against a number of switches at set intervals.

 

Edit:

 

For others reference, the following works for me with snmpset, replace .999 with what ever ID you prefer:

 

snmpset -v 2c -c COMMUNITY -r 0 SWITCH.MGMT.IP.ADDRESS 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.11.999 s FILENAME 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.10.999 i 1 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.9.999 a TFTP.SERVER.IP.ADDRESS 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.8.999 i 3 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.7.999 i 2 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.5.999 i 1 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.4.999 a 0.0.0.0 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.3.999 i 1 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.17.999 i 4

Jeff,

 

Heres the info I got from my team. First and foremost, you don need all of the parameters you showed, just the ones I here:

 

 

snmpset -v 2c -c public 10.5.233.57

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.17.1 i 4

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.3.1 i 1

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.7.1 i 2

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.8.1 i 3

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.10 1.87.2.1.9.1 a 10.5.71.7

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.9.6.1.101.87.2.1.11.1 s example1.txt

 

 

 

(here is "translation" for above -

 

 

 

Received Message Data {

 

      Error-Status: noError,

 

      Error-Index : 0,

 

      Bindings {

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopyRowStatus.1,

 

                  SNMPv2-TC:RowStatus,

 

                  "4"

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopySourceLocation.1,

 

                  CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:RlCopyLocationType,

 

                  "1"

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopySourceFileType.1,

 

                  CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:RlCopyFileType,

 

                  "2"

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopyDestinationLocation.1,

 

                  CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:RlCopyLocationType,

 

                  "3"

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopyDestinationIpAddress.1,

 

                  IpAddress,

 

                  "10.5.71.7"

 

            CISCOSB-COPY-MIB:rlCopyDestinationFileName.1,

 

                  SNMPv2-TC:DisplayString,

 

                  "example1.txt"

 

      }
