If you encounter problems on a ProxySG appliance using a modified configuration, you can use a saved backup to restore a known good configuration.
When a backup is restored, the following procedure takes place:
restore-defaults command is sent over the configured protocol. This command will restart the ProxySG.
- The SSH Simple protocol is used for reconnecting.
- After reconnecting, the backup is applied to the SG, then the connection protocol is switched to the configured protocol.
Note: A backup can only be restored to the ProxySG from which it was created. A backup can't be restored to a different ProxySG.
For instructions on how to restore a ProxySG backup, see the appropriate guide section for your SGME version, as shown below. The Configuration and Management Guide (CMG) for SGME can be downloaded from https://bto.bluecoat.com/documentation/pubs/Director .
