DotW: DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK

RESTORING CONFIGURATION BETWEEN PLATFORMS

Are you planning a hardware upgrade and want to reuse a configuration file? Are you trying to figure out how to go about restoring a backup configuration from a PA5000 series to a PA3000? Can you just move a config file from one device to the other? Sure enough, different hardware platforms have different properties and what is valid on one platform might not be valid on another.  How do you move forward when facing this conundrum?

From the article, feel free to share your experience and any help for others with Kim @kiwi and the community.

In short, this means you can choose to have certain applications use a different link without needing to tweak the routing table. Want to learn how? Right this way, please...
