Migrating the configuration
You can back up the system of one FortiAnalyzer model, and then use the CLI and the FTP, SCP, or SFTP protocol to migrate the settings to another FortiAnalyzer model.
If you encrypted the FortiAnalyzer configuration file when you created it, you need the password to decrypt the configuration file when you migrate the file to another FortiAnalyzer model.
To migrate the FortiAnalyzer configuration:
- In one FortiAnalyzer model, go to System Settings > Dashboard.
- Back up the system. See Backing up the system.
- In the other FortiAnalyzer model, go to System Settings > Dashboard.
- In the CLI Console widget, type the following command:
execute migrate all-settings <ftp | scp | sftp> <server> <filepath> <user> <password> [cryptpasswd]
