On a Management Appliance: Using Web Appliance Configuration Data

This option allows you to download the configuration and policy data from your established Web Appliance, allowing you to avoid repeating configuration work on your new Management Appliance. The configuration that is downloaded to the Management Appliance is then downloaded to other Web Appliances that are subsequently joined.

  1. Select Copy configuration and policy data from the first web appliance to join.

    Do this before you join any Web Appliances.

  2. On your original Web Appliance, join the Management Appliance.
    Important
    Be sure that the first Web Appliance that you join to your Management Appliance is the established Web Appliance with existing configuration and policy data, otherwise a new Web Appliance will set your Management Appliance configuration to that of an unconfigured Web Appliance.

    This will cause the Management Appliance to download the configuration and policy data from this first Web Appliance.

  3. Join any additional Web Appliances.

    These subsequently joined Web Appliances will download their configuration and policy data from the Management Appliance.
