I've been using a self-written program/script for quite a while now that initiates copying of the config file to an tftp server by writing to the router via SNMP. I've used the SNMP MIB entry . (with x.x.x.x being the TFTP server IP), writing the file name as a string to that entry. This has worked for just about any Cisco router and switch we have, up to an ASR1002F (running 15.0(1)). We have just put in a 1001 with IOS 15.1(3)S1, where the snmpset fails - the command itself timeouts, even blocking further snmp read commands from the same source for a while. I've been trying to find documents on which MIB entry I might have to use instead of that old entry, but to no avail ... does anybody happen to know if there's a replacement entry, or whether this might be a bug in the IOS?

Not sure, have you tried used a MIB browser to locate the value on the new router?

A MIB browser is nice if you have all used MIB definitions, AND know what field you're actually looking for ...

New way of writing the config uses the CISCO-CONFIG-COPY-MIB ... having trouble getting it to work on Nexus 5548, but have for the time being changed to initiating it with a rsh call
