The UTM-1 appliance provides the following ways of backing up and restoring its configuration:
You can export the UTM-1 appliance configuration to a *.cfg file on your computer, and use this file to backup and restore UTM-1 appliance settings, as needed.
The file includes all of your settings, except for the security policy and certificate.
You can back up the appliance configuration and device certificate to a USB flash drive. You can then restore the UTM-1 appliance settings from the USB flash drive as needed.
This method requires a USB port on your appliance.
Note: In both cases, the configuration file is saved as a textual CLI script. If desired, you can edit the file. For a full explanation of the CLI script format and the supported CLI commands, see the Embedded NGX CLI Reference Guide.
