BIG-IQ Centralized Management
What is snapshot management?
You can manage configuration snapshots for the configurations you have created on the BIG-IQ®. A snapshot is a backup copy of a configuration. Configuration snapshots are created automatically during the deployment process, and can also be created manually. This type of snapshot does not include events.
Creating a snapshot
You create a configuration snapshot to compare it to another configuration snapshot, or so you can save the working configuration and then restore from that snapshot if needed.
- Log in to the BIG-IQ® system with your user name and password.
- At the top left of the screen, select Change Management from the BIG-IQ menu.
Under SNAPSHOT & RESTORE, select Access.
The screen displays a list of Access snapshots that have been created on this device.
At the top of the screen, click Create.
The Create Snapshot screen opens.
- Supply the values on the Create Snapshot screen, and click Create.
The system creates the snapshot and adds it to the list of snapshots on the Snapshot and Restore - screen, including information related to the snapshot, including the date it was created, what account created it, and any description.
