I believe it is possible but I haven't done it directly. Check out sf-restore.pl in /var/sf/bin. You will need to run it as root user.

That's the script that's used when the GUI executes a restore. The FMC Migration tool uses it as well.

Thanks much. Marvin

I can restore FMC backup from its command line. I found this sf-restore-backup.pl file in this directory /usr/local/sf/bin.

Restore config is successful.

If we restore backup from GUI, how can we check detail progress log in CLI? 

I see the perl script has these two references:

my $logfile = SF::Reloc::RelocateFilename("/var/log/restore.log");
my $tmpfile = SF::Reloc::RelocateFilename("/var/log/tmp.log");

I'd try watching those ("tail -f" the files during restore).

Hi,

 

I am also trying the same, sf-backup.pl -n bkpname, but its giving error of temp location.

Do we need to pass the location for the same as well, i think it should take default location /var/sf/backup.

Can you please share the syntax for the same.

Hi Marvin,

Can you please also share the syntax of backup and restore from cli, its hard to get it from Cisco documentation.
