Editing backups isn’t possible on VSX clusters, which is ridiculous, and checking their full config isn’t possible from any of the GUIs, so it’s shell time.
SSH to the appliance you’re trying to deal with, and run
show configuration backup-scheduled from
clish. This’ll show you both the specific backup configuration and the schedule as well.
Here’s an example of a backup that SCPs to a remote host, twice a week at 0130.
add backup-scheduled name "Backup" scp ip 188.8.131.52 path /home/backups/appliance/ username "backup" password ***** set backup-scheduled name Backup recurrence weekly days 0,4 time 1:30
You can also do
recurrence daily time 12:30 for example, to do it every day.
To edit a policy, you actually have to remove and re-add the policy. It’s similar to Cisco IOS with delete in place of add, so to update the policy above to run daily at 0200 I’d do:
delete backup-scheduled Backup add backup-scheduled name "Backup" scp ip 184.108.40.206 path /home/backups/appliance/ username "backup" password ***** set backup-scheduled name Backup recurrence daily time 2:00
It’s all fairly simple, and tab completion works because you’re in
clish, so this is more for my own notes than anything else :)
