Migrating the configuration
You can back up the system of one FortiManager model, and then use the CLI and the FTP, SCP, or SFTP protocol to migrate the settings to another FortiManager model.
You need the username and password for the FortiManager model to which you are migrating the configuration file.
If you encrypted the FortiManager configuration file when you created it, you need the password to decrypt the configuration file when you migrate the file to another FortiManager model.
To migrate the FortiManager configuration:
- In one FortiManager model, go to System Settings > Dashboard.
- Back up the system. See Backing up the system.
- In the other FortiManager 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]
