Naming, Saving, and Backing Up the MCN Site Configuration

Aug 09, 2017

The next step is to name and save the new configuration, referred to as a configuration package. This step is optional at this point in the configuration, but strongly recommended. The configuration package will be saved to your workspace on the local appliance. You then have the option to log out of the Management Web Interface and continue the configuration process at a later time. However, if you log out, you will need to reopen the saved configuration when you resume. Instructions for opening a saved configuration are provided in the section Loading a Saved Configuration Package into the Configuration Editor.

Warning

If the Console session times out or you log out of the Management Web Interface before saving your configuration, any unsaved configuration changes will be lost. You must then log back into the system, and repeat the configuration procedure from the beginning. For that reason, it is strongly recommended that you save the configuration package often, or at key points in the configuration.

Tip

As an extra precaution, it is recommended that you use Save As, rather than Save, to avoid overwriting the wrong configuration package.

  1. Click Save As (at the top of the Configuration Editor middle pane).

          This opens the Save As dialog box.

     2.  Enter the configuration package name.

Note

If you are saving the configuration to an existing configuration package, be sure to select Allow Overwrite before saving.

     3.  Click Save.

Note

After saving the configuration file, you have the option to log out of the Management Web Interface and continue the configuration process at a later time. However, if you log out, you will need to reopen the saved configuration when you resume. Instructions are provided in the section, Loading a Saved Configuration Package into the Configuration Editor.

You have now completed the MCN site configuration, and created a new SD-WAN configuration package. You are now ready to add and configure the branch sites. Instructions are provided in  Adding and Configuring the Branch Sites.
