My goal is to set up a daily backup of Panorama/Firewall Configs.
Regarding config backups, does anyone know if the OS matters? For example, the SCP/FTP server is UNIX vs Windows where the logs are stored?
I also understand only Panorama can do this. How would I do this with all firewalls? The article below states that "Panorama saves a backup of its running configuration as well as the running configurations of all managed firewalls." but I don't see firewalls mentioned under Paorama -> Scheduled Config Export.

That is because the Panorama is the central repository of the XML and will zip up the configurations for all hardware (Panorama and FWs). I have been doing PS for 10 yrs, so I am pretty comfortable in stating that this is how the product works.
As to where the files are saved, it is in whatever directory you configure on the server and configure that directory in the Panorama settings.

@SteveCantwell , So if we're using Windows OS, only FTP is supported. In which OS environment can we try SCP to take periodic configuration export?

Here is a link to find some favorite SCP server apps for Windows

I would not say anyone is wrong. Maybe I am the one that is not fully understanding.
I have a Panorama and I am using Linux which support FTP/SCP and I am able to perform backups
Would you like for me to test FileZilla Server (which support SCP/FTP) on Windows.
I think the OS does not matter, only the protocol.
So I am confused when you say Panorama can only do FTP to a Windows machine. Not sure that the Panorama really is concerned about the OS, but more about the protocol.
I am trying my best to understand the situation and provide the best level of support to you.

Thanks @SteveCantwell for the response.
I've tried with FileZilla(from windows), through FTP protocol its working fine but not with SCP protocol, getting connection timeout.
I think in this case, we will need a Linux or Unix server if we want to use the SCP protocol.
