IPSO configuration sets allow you to change (or save) your systems complete current configuration. Allowing you to choose the required configuration (set) of your firewall with a few simple commands. This is useful for importing in configurations from other devices rather then setting up a box from scratch.
Configuration Set directory
The active configuration file is soft linked to the configuration file within /config/db/
ipso[admin]# ls -l /config/
drwxrwxr-x 2 root operator 512 May 9 20:09 .snap
-rw——- 2 root wheel 14 Jul 1 21:31 .sslpp
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 28 Sep 26 20:02 active -> /config/db/Production_Config
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Sep 26 20:02 db
Show Configuration Sets
To see which configuration sets you have available use the command,
ipso[admin]# clish -c “show cfgfiles”
Load an Configuration Set
To use another config file, place the file within /config/db/ and use the following command,
ipso[admin]# clish -s -c “load cfgfile [filename]”
Save a configuration to a configuration set
To save your current configuration to a configuration set run the following commands. The newly created configuration set will now become active.
ipso[admin]# clish -s -c “save cfgfile [name]”
- When copying configuration sets from device to device, the account passwords will be that of the device you copied the configuration file from.
- Once you have copied a configuration file from another box you will find that the /etc/hosts file has the wrong host name. Use the `add/delete host name` clish command to resolve this.
