Backup/Restore configuration IPS
A common question asked by many customers using the Cisco IPS device is how to backup/restore the configuration.
This document explains how to do the above.
1. From the old IPS you can FTP over the config:
IPS_OLD# copy current-config ftp://email@example.com
File name: current-config
2. Then you can copy over config on the new IPS:
IPS_NEW# copy ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/current-config current-config
Warning: Copying over the current configuration may leave the box in an unstable state.
Would you like to copy current-config to backup-config before proceeding? [yes]:
Would you like to replace existing network settings(host-name/ipaddress/netmask/gateway/access-list) on the sensor? [no]: yes
