I have put quite a bit of work into my lab routers and the configurations, enough that I have begun to worry about about how much work it would be to replace my current set up.
I have been backing up my primary server for the lab, but tonight I finally decided to back up the configurations on the routers. Here are the commands I ran on the ten CSR 1000V routers that make up the backbone of my lab.
archive tar /create tftp://192.168.2.101/R1-ipx.tar flash:ipx archive tar /create tftp://192.168.2.101/R1-c360.tar flash:c360 archive tar /create tftp://192.168.2.101/R1-ine.tar flash:ine
I then created a tar of all of the backups and put on my separate USB drive that I only plugin for backups. Yes I use Time Machine, but I also keep a backup of the most important files on a USB drive that is not plugged into my MAC. Paranoid maybe, but I sleep well at night.
