Back up the configuration

  • Perform regular backups to ensure you have a recent copy of your FortiAnalyzer configuration.
  • Verify the backup by comparing the checksum in the log entry with that of the backed up file.
  • Set up a backup schedule so you always have a recent backup of the configuration. See the FortiAnalyzer CLI Reference.
  • If your FortiAnalyzer is a virtual machine, you can also use VM snapshots.

If you use ADOMs, a large number of ADOMs can significantly increase the size of configuration files which increases backup and restore time. See ADOM considerations.
