How do I create an IPSO backup via clish ?

The following will show you how to save a full IPSO backup via the clish CLI. This will backup all of the operating system configuration such as routes, proxy arps, interface settings etc.

This will create a backup within the  /var/backup/ directory called ipso-backup_[date].tgz

clish -c "set backup manual filename ipso-backup"
clish -c "set backup manual on"

To restore run the following command :

clish -c "set restore manual /[path]/[filename].tgz
