Saving and restoring the SMC server configuration

Only the super administrator is allowed to back up or restore the configuration of the SMC server.

The configuration can be backed up and restored from the web interface of the server ("admin" user) or the command line interface ("root" user).

The following restriction applies to the restoration of a server configuration: the SMC server version must be the same as the version of the server from which the backup file was generated.

Server logs are not contained in the backup file.

You can also define automatic backups of firewall configurations as well as the configuration of the SMC server. For more information, see the section Backing up the configuration of firewalls.
