I'm looking for options to backup configurations, either binary or text. I'd love to use RANCID, but I can't seem to get it working with 5.x. Anyhow, with binary backups.. I would probably prefer that the backup gets created on a scheduled basis and then gets transferred (via FTP/SFTP/etc) to a remote host on a scheduled basis. Is this possible in 5.x?
Also, what is the easiest method to restore - text export or binary backups?
Any advice you can give would be appreciated.
