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.

  1. Log in to the BIG-IQ® system with your user name and password.
  2. At the top left of the screen, select Change Management from the BIG-IQ menu.
  3. Under SNAPSHOT & RESTORE, select Access.
    The screen displays a list of Access snapshots that have been created on this device.
  4. At the top of the screen, click Create.
    The Create Snapshot screen opens.
  5. 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.
