Backing up Gaia system level configuration Technical Level

Creating a backup of the system level configuration in Gaia will preserve information such as static routes, interface IP address information, etc. This is useful when doing a fresh install in lieu of an in-place upgrade, or doing a migration to new hardware.

To create the configuration file, use the following procedure:

  1. Log in to the command line on the Security Gateway or Security Management.
  2. Run the following command with the filename of your choice: CLI > save configuration <filename>

This will create a file with your current system level configuration in the home directory of the current user.
For example, if logged in as "admin", the file will be located in /home/admin.

To load the configuration, use the following procedure:

  1. Copy the file into the home directory of the user you will log in as.
    For example, if you will log in as "admin", put the file in /home/admin.

  2. Log in to the Security Gateway or Security Management server.

  3. Run the following command using the name of the configuration file.
    A message will display showing the current progress and any errors that are encountered.
    Then save config to commit the changes:

    HostName > set clienv on-failure continue
    HostName > load configuration <filename>
    HostName > set clienv on-failure stop
    HostName > save config
