Managing File Backups and Management Data Exports and Imports


This chapter provides procedures for managing file backups and management data.

This chapter includes the following sections:

Restoring the Cisco VNMC Software to the Backup Configuration

Working With File Backups

Working With Management Data Exports and Imports

Restoring the Cisco VNMC Software to the Backup Configuration

The backup configuration include backing up everything including the configuration and the association details. This is a binary backup.

To restore the Cisco VNMC software to the backup configuration, follow these steps:


Step 1 Install the Cisco VNMC virtual machine (VM).

For details, see the Cisco Virtual Security Gateway, Release 4.2(1)VSG1(1) and Cisco Virtual Network Management Center, Release 1.0.1 Installation Guide.

Step 2 Uninstall the Cisco VSG policy agents.

Connect the Secure Shell to the Cisco VSG console for this task. This step does not cause a traffic disruption.

vsg# conf t
vsg (config)# vnm-policy-agent
vsg (config-vnm-policy-agent)# no policy-agent-image

Note Perform this step for all Cisco VSGs that are associated with the Cisco VNMC that you are restoring.


Step 3 Uninstall the VSM policy agents.

Connect the Secure Shell to the VSM console for this task. This step does not cause a traffic disruption.

vsm# conf t
vsm (config)# vnm-policy-agent

vsm (config-vnm-policy-agent)# no policy-agent-image


Note Perform this step for all VSMs that are associated with the Cisco VNMC you are restoring.


Step 4 Restore the Cisco VNMC database.

Connect the Secure Shell to the Cisco VNMC CLI for this task. Depending upon your Cisco VNMC backup location, restore using File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Secure Copy (SCP), Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

vnmc# connect local-mgmt
vnmc(local-mgmt)# restore scp:[//[username@]server][/path]
 
   

Step 5 In the Cisco VNMC GUI, choose Administration > Service Registry > Clients, and in the Work pane proceed with the following steps:

a. Wait until each registered VSM displays the operational status as lost-visibility.

b. Choose each VSM, and click the Delete Client icon.

Step 6 In the Cisco VNMC GUI, choose Resource Management > Resources > Virtual Supervisor Modules, and verify that the deleted VSMs are not visible.

Step 7 Reinstall the VSM policy agents.


Note If the VSM policy agents must be upgraded, install the new software now.


VSM# conf t
VSM (config)# vnm-policy-agent 
VSM (config-vnm-policy-agent)# policy-agent-image bootflash:vnmc-vsmpa.1.0.1g.bin
 
   

Step 8 Wait until all the VSMs have registered in the Service Registry and are displayed under Resource Management > Resources > Virtual Supervisor Modules.

Step 9 Reinstall the Cisco VSG policy agents.


Note If the Cisco VSG policy agents must be upgraded, install the new software now.


VSG# conf t
VSG (config)# vnm-policy-agent 
VSG (config-vnm-policy-agent)# policy-agent-image bootflash:vnmc-vsgpa.1.0.1g.bin
 
   

Step 10 Verify the following states after the restore process is complete:


Note The restore process could take a few minutes depending upon your setup environment.


a. On the Cisco VSG CLI, verify that your configurations are restored to their earlier state.

b. On the Cisco VNMC GUI, verify that your objects and policies are restored to their earlier state.
