Re: How to take a Backup of NIPS Sensors

Log in to NSM

Go to Devices Tab > Devices > Select Device from drop down you want to "BackUp"

Under Maintenance, choose Export Configuration.

This is the only backup you can get.

When you want to restore from the backup, you simply go to the same location and choose Import Configuration.

8.3 IPS Administration Guide

Section 40 


Hope this helps.
