Every backup have sense if restore work.
Now restore manually is working fine, but in the inventory manager consolle we have the restore wizard that could help, but ....
Suppose we have a network environment with a non default password or radius auth for access the switches, and we have a switch that have some problem but still reachable via their ip, and we want to replace it with another one.
So manually we:
take a new switch,
update the firmware,
install modules (ssh example) if need it,
winscp to the netsight to download the config (zipped even if called .cfg)
unpack the zip file on a local tftp
downalod the conf on the update switch
reboot and we are ready to install them.
there is a way to simplify this method?
If I use the restore wizard for the configuration, we need that the new switch have the same ip address of the faulted switch (sometimes is not possible) and respond with the same credential, (again in my example is not possible)
To solve I suppose, than adding at the restore wizard the capability to select the temporary ip address and the credential, where to restore the original configuration ...
Or if you have another IDEA or WAY to done quickly a restore please share it.
