Resolution

For copying iVM Profiles onto Multiple Appliances, please refer to the Tech. doc. with the URL below, for the recommended guidance.

Note:

Content Analysis offers two ways to copy iVM profiles onto multiple appliances. Both methods require that you first prepare an export package of the profile you want to clone.

  • Option 1: Copy the export package and Windows base image directly from the source appliance onto the target appliance. See Import Directly from Another Content Analysis Appliance.
  • Option 2: Host the export package and Windows image on an intermediate server. See Download from a Web Server.

This operation requires that you enter CLI commands on each Content Analysis appliance (source and target systems). It uses remote APIs to pull a profile export package and Windows base image off of a remote system and place it on the current (target) system.

With Management Center, only upgrade of system images is possible, to remote devices, and not CAS iVM images. See the Tech. docs with the URL below, for reference.
