I was looking for an outline of the restore procedure for a concentrator, but haven't found anything. Even the textbook I have regarding Cisco VPNs has nothing about the steps involved. Is it as simple as getting connection via http(s) or ssh and restoring a backup of the config, for example

List of Files

-------------

SAVELOG.TXT CONFIG CONFIG.BAK


1) Delete File

2) Copy File

3) View File

4) Put File via TFTP

5) Get File via TFTP

6) Swap Config Files

7) Export XML File

8) Import XML File

9) Reformat Filesystem

10) Back


and overwriting the current CONFIG file? Are there any gotchas here?


thank you,


Bill

yes, copy a good known backup to CONFIG and reboot.

As long as the file you backed up from is good, there are no gotchas.

The admin account password is NOT contained within the config file though.
