what is the best way to import backup into secondary RMA panorama M200

L3 Networker

We RMA secondary Panorama M200 , currently we don't have backup of Secondary panorama. But Primary M200 is accessible.

Which backup will be better option to export from Primary Panorama and import into Secondary Panorama ?

 

1. Export named Panorama configuration snapshot without selecting device groups and templates. size : 8191 kb

or

2. Export named Panorama configuration snapshot with selecting device groups and templates . size : 5372 kb

or

3.

Export Panorama configuration version

or

 

4. Can we import device config bundle ?

 

Also please note that we have collector group configuration between Panorama HA pair , is there any issue in collector group configuration or building (SSD/HDD) in RMA secondary panorama ?

If yes , then do we we need to look for last month Secondary Panorama backup? importing last month backup of Secondary Panorama will be suitable in that case?

It very much possible to export the Panorama configuration from the Primary and import to a 2ndary Panorama.

You only need to change the Mgmt IP, hostname, and the HA configurations, so that the 2 Panoramas would not overlap hostname, IP, and compliment the HA.

When you have an HA config, the configs are synced.. which helps,, but as far as if you can restore the primary as the secondary.. I am not sure, as the information specifically for that machine like machine name etc, would also be there and that could mess things up that way. 

As I said, since most of the config is synced between the members, you may be able to get away with configuring the basics, and then syncing.. but I am not 100% sure on that. 

 

Here are a couple of documents on backup up panorama for reference.

Config import didn't work. Even tac engineer failed to import. Lastly we have sync the config from Primary Panorama and did management specific changes manually on Secondary Panorama.
