Preparing the USB key

If you are using a USB key for a firewall's initial configuration, Stormshield strongly recommends encrypted USB keys such as Kingston Data Traveler, which are protected with a built-in PIN.

Formatting the USB key

The USB key must contain a single partition formatted to FAT32.

Copying the necessary files

Depending on the operations performed, copy the following files to the root folder of the USB key:

  • Licenses (.licence),
  • Software update(s) (.maj),
  • Configuration backup(s) (.na),
  • SMC connecting package(s) (.pack),
  • PKCS#12 certificate(s) (.p12),
  • Files containing the password to the admin account (.pwd),
  • Files containing the dynamic routing configuration (.bird or .bird6),
  • Additional configuration files (.csv).
