Issue/Introduction

Question:

I need to backup my probe configuration so that if there is a problem I can redeploy them again quickly.
How do I do this?

Answer:

Most probe store all of their configuration in a .cfg file that is located in the probe directory.

Example:

<nimsoft>/probes/system/cdm/cdm.cfg

usually backing up all of the .cfg on a system will provide you with what you need.

 

NOTE: Support STRONGLY suggest backing up the entire <nimsoft> directory as how probes handle configuration can change over time.

 

One method to quickly backup your configurations so they can easily be re-deployed is to create a configuration only Archive Package:

Example:

 

Drag and drop the specific probe to the archive in infrastructure manager
Ensure 'configuration only' is ticked as below

<Please see attached file for image>

User-added image

Change the name to easily identify the config file and hit ok
This file can then be deployed over an existing probe to apply the saved config

A Third option is to follow the attached article to store your configuration in a database:
