Exporting Configurations

Netskope recommends that you export configurations to an external storage device for use at a later time.

There are two ways to export configurations.

  • Using config-transporter script: Use this method to export configurations from appliance versions older than 46.

  • Using CLI: Use this method to export configurations from appliance version 46.

Exporting Configurations using config-transporter Script

Install the config-transporter script and export configurations from appliance versions older than 46.

  1. Run the following command to install the config-transporter script.

    sudo dpkg -i config-transporter-<version>.deb

    The config-transporter package is installed in the /opt/ns/bin directory.

  2. Navigate to the /opt/ns/bin/config-transporter directory and run the following command.

    sudo python config_transporter.py --physical-appliance export --file /tmp/export_configurations.tar

Note

Ensure that you use the correct version of the config-transporter script to export configurations. For example, if you are exporting configurations from version 44.0 to 46.24, then install the config-transporter script from version 46.24. Contact Netskope support to get the correct version of the config-transporter script .

Exporting Configurations Using CLI

Starting from version 46, you can export configurations using the following CLI command.

scp export config to host <host-IP-address> path <location-to-copy-to> user <user-name-on-the-remote-host>
