Migrating IPS Sensors from 9100 to 9500

Hello,

I'm new to Mcafee NSP now I'm required to migrate 9100 Sensors to 9500, so I will migrate current NSM appliance to MLOS first then initialize and configure new sensors 9500 and manage them with the new Linux NSM. I'm wondering how to migrate all types of policies to the new sensor ? does the NSM DB includes the policies or only alerts and packet logs ?

Thanks

Hi @Mostafa20 

Collect the backup from Windows NSM before migration. Boot Linux NSM with same version as Windows NSM and restore the backup in Linux NSM. The configurations will be copied to the new NSM.

 

All Table Backup - included complete information like db details, alerts, configurations

Config table backup - collect configurations and not alerts.

Hi @fkazi04

Thanks for your response, this means I don't need to manually export old sensor's policies (IPS, FW, Recon, etc) and then import them right ?

Thanks

Hi @Mostafa20 

That's correct!

If you are restoring your backup All Table or Config, no need to export the policies and then import again.
