Importing/restoring base policies on CSA MC?

Unanswered Question
Aug 20th, 2007

We have a CSA Test server that we make lots of changes to on

an ongoing basis. We'd like to know the recommended way to wipe out all

of our changes and restore an original policy configuration. We'd also like to be able to import the policies from our Production CSA server cleanly onto the test box.

In my testing, it seems the way to do this is to first delete all groups,

policies and rules and then do an import. Otherwise if there are policies left

in place, the imported data (groups, policies and/or rules) gets renamed by

appending an underscore and the name of the import file.

Is this the only way to accomplish this task or is there a better way that involves less manual intervention?

I have this problem too.

You can always do a backup and restore operation on the test DB. Back it up after the first install of the test box and then you can always bring it back. Even better is if your test box is on a VM you can just revert to a snapshot.
