1.      Go to System, Toolkit, File Manager, open the admin_group directory, then open the config_backup directory.

2.      A list of all the available backup files for the Local System will be displayed.

 

CLI

All versions

1.      From the CLI access the shell by executing:

shell sudo su –

2.      List all files in the /backup directory using the list command:

ls /backup

3.      A list of all the available backup files for the Local system will be displayed.

 

 

To Restore the backup configuration into your NodeGrid, follow the steps below: 

 

WebUI

1. Go to System, Toolkit, and click on Apply Settings icon.

2. Select the option Local System: enter the file name (the file will be in /backup folder in the system shell)

 

NOTE: NodeGrid version 6.x.x and later will provide a pull-down menu with the available backup files stored in the Local System.

 

3. Click on Apply

 

 

CLI

Type the following:

 

cd /system/toolkit

apply_settings

set from=local_system

set filename=<filename>
