I have few queries:

1)Can we backup running configurations of the devices only and comment out other commands.
2)Presently backups are happening ip-wise can we make it hostname-wise.
3)If individual devices needs to be backed up(Incase they were not reachable at time of backup) what would be the command.....?

Thanks & Regards
