Panorama > Scheduled Config Export

To schedule an export of all the running configurations on Panorama and firewalls, Add an export task and configure the settings as described in the following table.
If Panorama has a high availability (HA) configuration, you must perform these instructions on each peer to ensure the scheduled exports continue after a failover. Panorama does not synchronize scheduled configuration exports between HA peers.
Scheduled Configuration Export Settings
Description
Name
Enter a name to identify the configuration export job (up to 31 characters). The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores.
Description
Enter an optional description.
Enable
Select to enable the export job.
Scheduled export start time (daily)
Specify the time of day to start the export (24 hour clock, format HH:MM).
Protocol
Select the protocol to use to export logs from Panorama to a remote host. Secure Copy (SCP) is a secure protocol; FTP is not.
Hostname
Enter the IP address or hostname of the target SCP or FTP server.
Port
Enter the port number on the target server.
Path
Specify the path to the folder or directory on the target server that will store the exported configuration.
For example, if the configuration bundle is stored in a folder called exported_config within a top level folder called Panorama, the syntax for each server type is:
  • SCP server: /Panorama/exported_config
  • FTP server: //Panorama/exported_config
Enable FTP Passive Mode
Select to use FTP passive mode.
Username
Specify the username required to access the target system.
Password / Confirm Password
Specify the password required to access the target system.
Use a password with maximum length of 15 characters. If the password exceeds 15 characters, the test SCP connection will display an error because the firewall encrypts the password when it tries to connect to the SCP server and the length of the encrypted password can be up to 63 characters only.
Test SCP server connection
Select to test communication between Panorama and the SCP host/server.
To enable the secure transfer of data, you must verify and accept the host key of the SCP server. The connection is not established until the host key is accepted. If Panorama has an HA configuration, you must perform this verification on each HA peer so that each one accepts the host key of the SCP server.
