Create a snapshot

You create a configuration snapshot to compare it to another configuration snapshot, or so you can save the current working configuration and then restore from that snapshot if needed.
You create a configuration snapshot to preserve the configuration at that point. There are three things you can do with a snapshot:
  • Deploy the preserved configuration to a managed device.
  • Restore the BIG-IQ Centralized Management device's current configuration to the preserved configuration.
  • Compare the preserved configuration to the BIG-IQ device's current configuration to see what has changed.
  1. At the top of the screen, click
    Deployment
    .
  2. Expand
    SNAPSHOTS
    , and then select the component from which to create the snapshot.
    The screen displays a list of snapshots that have been created for the selected component on this device.
  3. Click the
    Create
    button.
    The New Snapshot screen opens.
  4. Supply the values on the New Snapshot screen, and click
    Create
    .
The system creates the snapshot and adds it to the list of snapshots on the Snapshot screen, along with information related to the snapshot, including the date it was created, what account created it, and any description.
