using a backup on another appliance?



  • Hello all!

    I have a question regarding backups. I have several SG-4860's. I am building and testing on one of them until I know everything works and knowing how it all works. Once I am certain of stability of the configuration and my ability to maintain it, I want to create a backup and then use that to make the other appliances match.

    Is this possible?

    As a side question, I have several Dell Optiplex 330's / 390's that I want to deploy as well (with the community edition). Can I build one unit then use the backup on the others?

    Thanks for any responses

    Yes to both questions. You can also restore a backup between different hardware types and between factory and community versions though there are some caveats there.
