Hi,

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

If you want complete configuration/settings to be restored on new appliance, you can take complete backup from current MWG and restore it in new MWG.

 

 

Please refer below link for more information on this:-

 

https://community.mcafee.com/t5/Enterprise-Documents/Web-Gateway-Restoring-a-backup-after-a-Hardware...

 

Note:- The backup contains the active config that is stored in the /opt/mwg/storage. The windows domain membership can not be restored because the password is not saved. The root password is part of the operating system, not part of the MWG software and is not stored in the storage folder. Any other operating system customization that are not stored in the storage folder are therefore also not restored.

Hello @aloksard

I have a similar situation but I have to migrate old two cluster nodes to a new one which is different HW model. I created a plan to that as following is it correct or I'm missing something , appreciate your answer ?

1.Initialize new appliances
2.Upgrade old appliances to match new appliances version
2.Backup from the old appliance along with its UUID
3.Restore backup to New Proxy 1 and keep cluster option
4.Delete Proxy 2 appliance from the cluster tree
5.Import a cluster CA and its private key to New Proxy 2
6.Re-add Proxy 2 to a Central Management cluster and make sure configuration is synced

Thanks,

Mostafa
