Transfer of Files from CUCM FTP

Transfer of files from CUCM to SFTP server:

If we want to transfer files from CUCM FTP to local drive then we can do this from CUCM CLI. We may need to do this to analyze few files like Ringlist.xml or list.xml etc.

Set up a SFTP server first. You can use any FTP/SFTP software but I am using FTPd which you can download from Tools section.

SSH to CUCM Server:

admin:file get tftp ?
file get tftp file-spec [options]
file-spec   mandatory   file to transfer
options     optional    reltime months|weeks|days|hours|minutes timevalue
abstime hh:mm:MM/DD/YY hh:mm:MM/DD/YY
match regex

admin:file get tftp /Desktops/320x212x12

  1. I was using msftpsrvr.exe as SFTP server from this web page.

    But I always got this error:
    Download directory: /

    “Invalid download directory specified.”

    Until I tried with FTPd, it works well. That’s funny ’cause last time FTPd was the faulty program and msftpsvr.exe worked well.

    I supose whenever I get that error, try with different sFTP servers.
    Thanks you.
