Managing Archives

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

The Archives page is used to create and restore archives of system settings. Archives can be saved on removable media and used when restoring a Smoothwall. They can also be used to create clones of existing systems.

You assign a profile to an archive enabling you to specify which components you want backed up in a particular archive.

You can create and assign up to 20 profiles and generate their archives automatically.

Archive profiles are also used to share settings in centrally managed Smoothwalls, referred to in this case as replication profiles. For more information about centrally managed Smoothwalls, see Setting up a Centrally Managed System.
