We have Kiwi CatTools v3.11.3 installed on a Windows server. We have successfully setup a daily TFTP backup of our Cisco ASA FWs with multiple contexts. This was accomplished by setting the following commands in the TFTP job. Changeto context fw_inside write net 184.108.40.206:fw_inside_backup Changeto context fw_outside write net 220.127.116.11:fw_outside_backup
The CatTools server (18.104.22.168) receives two files: fw_inside_backup fw_outside_backup
The next day, the CatTools job is run again and the two files are overwritten and replaced with two new files with the same name. I am looking for a solution whereby we can have a history of several TFTP backup files, not just the last backup. With other Linux based systems we are able to use the “$date” in the file creation so that each file has a unique name, Example: Changeto context fw_inside write net 22.214.171.124:fw_inside_backup_$date but this is not possible with the ASA operating system.
How can we keep a history of several backup files that are TFTP’ed to the CatTools server?
