Restore M1000e Backup to a Different M1000e

Jump to solution

Is it possible to take a backup from a M1000e chassis and restore on a new/different chassis? THe desire would be to build a gold copy of the configuration that could be used to start as a base configuration on a new chassis.

Granted there are some settinigs that would need to be changed (i.e. chassis name, etc) but at least it would provide consistency between chassis units.

Hi DEWilliams,

Yes there is clone functionality from chassis to chassis.

You can access it through the group administration tab of the lead CMC chassis through the M1000e's CMC GUI interface.

Here's a video I made - I think what you are looking for is at 3:17

en.community.dell.com/.../20127506.aspx

From the transcript:

"this new feature provides an option to copy or “clone” alerting and directory services settings to the new member chassis. This feature can automatically update up to 80 parameters that help you configure ActiveDirectory, StandardSchema, LDAP, LDAPRoleGroup, Traps, Alerts, EmailAlerts, and SNMP"

Looks like a really good video Peter and might address 2 of my issues. I'm going to take some time to review and detail but it looks very promising that this will help. Thanks very much! David
