Saving and restoring the SMC server configuration is possible from the server web interface or from the command line interface.
The following restriction applies to restore 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 .
