Currently we are running with McAfee Web Gateway 184.108.40.206 and now we wan to install McAfee Web Gateway of latest version on VM
And we want to take the backup from running Appliance and restore the same on new VM.
But while we are taking backup through restore/ backup from current Appliance (McAfee Web Gateway 220.127.116.11), getting error message something like unable to take the backup,
Please help me out to take the backup and have some quarries as well
1. how to take the backup?, if from GUI is not possible, can i take the backup either console or CLI
2. Hardware Appliance config (McAfee Web Gateway 18.104.22.168), which is old version can be resorted on latest VM or else shall I download and Install the same old version. (Note. Hard ware appliance is not support to upgrade, because of device is old one (1100E)).
If you help me out as step by step, It would be great full.
1. Please see this KB and this document. (scheduling automatic backup). MWG itself is based on RedHat linux. You can use: /opt/mwg/bin/mwg-coordinator -B "file:in=ACTIVE" to backup using CLI.
2. You should be able to restore the configuration to a newer MWG version. However if you have support from McAfee, you can make a quick call or open a ticket for confirmation. If you have the same version as a virtual appliance, you can restore the configuration, then upgrade the MWG to newer version.
