Pinned topic Backup from internal

‏2012-11-24T17:18:22Z |
Is there any way I can do backup the whole device configuration from Log targets or anything?

Or do I need to go with SOMA or Regular python scripts

    Device backup through log target I doubt that you can do like that.

    Different ways can be having XML FW service which will be doing the same things as SOMA.
    You can also write script using CLI command backup backup_all using perl, shell or python script.

    Hi Kumar,
    thanks for reply.
    I'm poor at scripting. It would be great if you could please share a script which I can use it.

    OK, this is the CLI script you need:
    $ cat backup.cli 
    admin
    password
    backup myBackup
    copy export:///myBackup.zip scp://you@yourSCPaccessibleBox/myBackup.zip
    exit
    $
    


    You can execute it simply (after adjusting "password", "you" and "yourSCPaccessibleBox") by:
    ssh yourDPbox < backup.cli
    


    This executes the commands of "backup.cli", login, full backup, "scp" backup off the device and logout.
