vsxexport.sh - Export VSX settings and configuration files

RickHoppe
Advisor

Imagine a Life Cycle Management project where you have to upgrade a VSX gateway with new hardware. Imagine a crashed VSX gateway you need to reinstall whether it is on the same or RMA hardware. Imagine you are upgrading a VSX gateway and need to log a baseline with current BGP peering and all routes of all Virtual Systems. Are you in control and do you know which configuration files were added or modified in VS0 or all other Virtual Systems so you can easily add them back?

Thanks! I always prefer to have a recent CPInfo file available to be able to view all important files, command outputs and other details of a VSX system in DiagnosticsView.

CPInfo contains so much information that for me it's like finding a needle in haystack, which costs more time in the end. I've used the vsxexport script several times when reconfiguring VSX gateways and it saved me a lot of time while preparing for those maintenance windows.

CPInfo indexes all files and command outputs to allow quick searches.

Also it has customizable layouts so you don't have to find the need in a haystack once you customized it for VSX.

Hi  @YuriyAnoshyn,

Thanks for the feedback. You are referring to the 'set bootp' commands right? I will include them in the next version. If you know more commands that are not included yet, please do let me know.
