Backup/restore How to restore Certificates only



  • I am trying to shifted from physical to Virtual environment.

    I have complete backup file and trying to restore it to virtual environment and the fact is that only the Certificates and OPENVPN Configuration are important and I can do the rest as new.

    However I cant seems to find the option in RESTORE AREA custom option to only restore certificates and CA.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Ali.



  • Hi,

    I guess you are right.
    "Certs" are backed up when you select "All" - you can find them in the exported config.xml file - search for the <cert>lines.

    But, some possibilities exist.
    Just edit the exported config.xml file - keep intact the format, throw everything away except the

    	 <cert><refid>54ca2cf9af6xx</refid>
    
    		<crt>LS0tLS1CRUdJTiBDRVJUSUZJQ0..............................S0tLS0NCg==</crt>
    		<prv>LS0tLS1CRUdJTiBSU.......................EgUFJJVkFURSBLRVktLS0tLQ0K</prv>
    		<caref>54ca2cbc230bb</caref></cert> 
    

    parts.

    Import your modified file.

    Note : respect the XML format, otherwise be prepared for special effects ;)

    Another idea : what about adding

    		       "cert" => gettext("Certificats"),		   
    

    to the file diag_backup.php - around line 190 ;)</cert>
