Description (partial)

Backup config files are not retained on the SFTP/TFTP server.

By design the DCNM server will open an SSH session to the switch and run the following commands:
"copy running-config bootflash:name_of_file"
"copy bootflash:name_of_file sftp://SFTP_user_ID@IP_of_SFTP/name_of_file"
"delete bootflash:name_of_file"

The SFTP root directory is specified in the DCNM Web Client in the "SFTP/TFTP Credentials" section.
Once the file arrives to this location from the copy command on the switch, it is automatically sent to the DCNM database (PostgreSQL/Oracle) and deleted from the SFTP server.

Need to add functionality to export configuration backup files to a remote or local file (FTP/SFTP/TFTP) server.
