• In a previous article, we looked at how to leverage the Python Module Paramiko to connect to Cisco routers and switches via SSH and execute commands. In this article, we will build on that knowledge and build a Cisco config backup system of all our devices on a schedule. You can also use this information to push common updates to all your devices, such as updating a syslog server entry, SNMP server, or any other commands you may need to send to all devices.

  • The Python module Paramiko enables you to leverage Python to automate the management of CISCO routers and switches. In this guide, I will explain how to install Paramiko via pip and provide a usage example. The module makes Python act as an SSH client or server, enabling us to automate any device to which we can connect via SSH.
