We inherited around 90 HPE 24 port switches of this model:
HPE OfficeConnect Switch 1820 24G PoE+ (185W) J9983A, PT.02.06, Linux 3.6.5, U-Boot 2012.10-00119 (Aug 31 2018 - 10:12:27)
And we're looking at how we could pull the config from them, to have config backups.
We could have a klick monkey web browse through all the switches and login, navigate the menu and eventually click to download the file (seems to be a binary blob) via HTTP. That would be acceptable for a one-time event while doing some config cosmetics manually, but in the long run (scheduled backups), that would be awful.
It seems that the final click on the download button results in a web request like
But contracting this to ...
... fell short and got a 404, and probably was a stupid idea to start with. Proper configured webservers should never allow such things, anyway.
Do you know another way to get/pull the config file directly from such a switch? We generally use Kiwi Cattools to run such tasks, but it's more geared towards systems that have a CLI and text-parseable configs (at least the somewhat dated version we have).
Thanks for your thoughts hints and pointers
