Scheduled Configuration export From Panorama To SFTP server

L3 Networker

Hi Team,


I have configured Scheduled Configuration export to linux SFTP server, it doesn't work.


Hence I'm using default sftp port 22. But in configuration I could only saw the option that can export only using FTP or SCP.


I've tried using winSCP its working. But when I tried using cli command to export the "configuration.xml" file from panorama to SFTP server with port 22 it's not working.


In Panorama when tried using CLI command to export the "config.xml" file I found only FTP & TFTP not SFTP. 


admin@BSDCPanorama-01(primary-active)> tftp export configuration remote-port 22 from Snap_18042020 to
mode set to octet
Connected to (, port 22
putting /opt/pancfg/mgmt/saved-configs/Snap_18042020 to [octet]
Transfer timed out.


1. Does SFTP supports to export the configuration from panorama? 


2. Can we export the configuration.xml file to SFTP server using SCP?

If yes please clarify how to accept the host key.

when tried test scp server connection getting below error:



Can any one please help us here! Didn't found any related articles about this query.
