GSS configuration backup and restore

Is there a way where I could backup the GSS configurations and restore it later.

Re: GSS configuration backup and restore

You can perform a full GSSM backup at any time. Doing so does not interfere with the functioning of the GSSM or any of your other GSS devices. Performing a full backup of the GSSM requires access to the GSSM CLI.

To perform a full backup of your GSSM

Step 1 Log on to the CLI of your GSSM, following the instructions in the Cisco Global Site Selector Command Reference. The Cisco CLI prompt appears.

Step 2 Enable privileged EXEC mode, for example:

gss1.yourdomain.com> enable

gss1.yourdomain.com#

Step 3 Use the gssm command to create a full backup of your GSSM. You need to supply a filename for your full backup. For example:

gss1.yourdomain.com# gssm backup full crmfullbk

GSSM database backup succeeded [crmfullbk.full]

Step 4 After you have received confirmation that the GSSM has successfully created your full backup, copy or move the file off your GSSM to ensure that it is not also lost if a media failure or other catastrophic loss occurs on your GSSM.

Either the secure copy (scp) or ftp commands can be used to move your full backup to a remote host, for example:

gss1.yourdomain.com# scp crmfullbk.full server.yourdomain.com:home

Voila!

That took quite a time to be answered.

Thanks.
