Saving the server configuration from the command line interface

  1. To save a server configuration from the command line interface, connect to the SMC server via the console port or SSH connection with the "root" user.
  2. Enter the command
    fwadmin-config-backup
    The name of the archive name is displayed.
  3. To save the configuration without the deployment history, enter the command

The configuration backup file can be restored from:

  • The SMC server web interface,
  • The command line interface,
  • The SMC server initialization wizard.
