Import named configuration snapshot failure

I'm trying to import my production Panorama VM configuration into my lab Panorama VM and I am getting the following message, and I'm not entirely sure what it means:

 

upload -> config -> content Node can be at most 41943060 characters - current length after decoded 42002198upload -> config -> content is invalid

 

Does this mean the Panorama configuration file must be under 42 MB to be imported?  If it's running in production and I have to recover, does this mean I'm screwed?  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Dan,

 

You're near the limit so you can probably cleanup some things in your configuration. Also you can always manually extract the configurations from the snapshot and configured them through the cli.

Or the easy way upgrade panorama to 7.0 (you can test it in your lab)

 

Gerardo,
