The SBC EMA provides the ability to generate a system backup file. The user can restore the configuration files from the storage location. During this process, the system will restart and the user has to re-login, once the system is up and running. This is useful if you upgrade the SBC EMA and need to reload the old configurations.
The SBC stores up to 10 manual and seven automatic backup files.
Re-installing a SBC system from an ".iso" image followed by restoring SBC configuration from a tar.gz backup file may lead to loss of encrypted configuration parameters in the following scenarios:
- re-installing a standalone SBC from an ".iso" image followed by restoring SBC configuration from a "tar.gz" backup file
- re-installing both nodes in an HA SBC pair from an ".iso" image followed by restoring SBC configuration from a "tar.gz" backup file
Activities like replacing a single node in an HA pair (as an RMA for example) or re-installing a single node in an HA pair at a time are safe. The node that has just been re-installed will take the current configuration from the active node.
For details please refer to Sonus Warning: Warning-17-00022737.
