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.

Hi,

What a fantastic script you have made! I noticed that it doesn't pick up route-redistributions, though. Is this intentional, or is it possible to add?

Kind regards
Claes

Hi  @Claes_Olsson2 ,

It was not intentional so I added it to version v1.0.4 which is now available. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Rick,

Very nice script indeed. I also have and information gathering script. For the per vs information gathering, I would like to suggest to also include "add arp", "set max-path-splits", "set inbound-route-filter" and "set pbr".

Kind Regards,

Eamon Jones

Version 1.1 has been published an includes a self-update mechanism. It will check for new versions in the GitHub repository when the script is launched. If a new version is available it will be downloaded, installed, and started. If the check fails for some reason it will display a FAILED message and continues with the rest of the script.

'set bootp' is added since version 1.0.3 and should be backupped if you downloaded version 1.1 today. I've doublechecked it in my lab on R80.40 VSX and 'set bootp' commands in VS1 were backupped successfully.

If it still does not work I need more details about your environment.

Hi Rick,

I was running on VSX R81 from a TACACS authenticated user and the problem was that the script did not change VS when executing the command 'clish -i -f cmd_file'
