Backup and Restore

You can backup or restore text files that reflect the Startup Config, and Running Config as well as backup/restore of a binary Flash memory for the selected device. You can compare, store, view and version the text files, and can restore either text or flash memory to the device if you have the File Management option installed.

Because the Aruba mobility controller's flash memory backup is a compressed, binary .tar.gz file, the displayed Current Config is not always textual. The flash file is binary, so you cannot view it as text. Nevertheless, you can restore it as long as the backup file has the extension of .tar.gz Using this application to backup the flash automatically creates the file with this extension.
