Backup/Restore configuration IPS

________________________________________________________________________________________________

A common question asked by many customers using the Cisco IPS device is how to backup/restore the configuration.

This document explains how to do the above.


1. From the old IPS you can FTP over the config:

IPS_OLD# copy current-config ftp://user@1.1.1.1

File name: current-config

Password: ****

2. Then you can copy over config on the new IPS:

IPS_NEW# copy ftp://sid@1.1.1.1/current-config current-config

Password: *****

Warning: Copying over the current configuration may leave the box in an unstable state.

Would you like to copy current-config to backup-config before proceeding? [yes]:

Would you like to replace existing network settings(host-name/ipaddress/netmask/gateway/access-list) on the sensor? [no]: yes
