Check_Cisco_Config
2013-9-26 - Updated to version .3 This update should make the script work on newer Linux and Unix TFTP servers that require an existing file to exist before accepting an incoming file. The script now touches the file name to create an empty file so that the TFTP server will work.

I also made sure to commit the file with Unix LF this time to avoid DOS style carriage returns.

2012-4-20 - A readme file has been added with some basic documentation and examples.

This is a plugin that will utilize SNMPset and TFTP to backup and alert on changes for Cisco IOS devices.

I successfully use this plugin with the following switches and APs (it probably works with many more, but this is only what I have in production.)

Switches (LANBASE and LANLITE)
2950
2960
2960S
3560

APs (Autonomous)
1200
1231
1242

Tried it on a 2060 Cisco Switch and received:

Error in packet.
Reason: noAccess
Failed object: iso.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.96.1.1.1.1.2.219

Status is OK


COnfig file is created but empty.

The plugin works just fine. If it throws the "command not found" error, you have to cut the line "#!/usr/bin/perl" and paste it on the first line.

Later, if it throws this one: "bash: ./check_cisco_config.pl: /usr/bin/perl^M:..." you have to download dos2unix (sudo apt-get install dos2unix on debian based distros) and write: dos2unix check_cisco_config.pl. This error ocurrs because the .pl file was written on a DOS based OS (Windows) and the file format is diferent from unix.

Cheers!

This is all incorporated into release .3

Thanks for the feedback!

Hello! It's very interesting plugin but it's not working. I installed it as described in readme.txt. When I execute it the following errors appear:

Could somebody help me to fix this error??
