Restoring a management-module configuration

You can restore or modify your current configuration by using a saved management module configuration.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to the management module for which you want to restore the configuration. For more information, see Starting the management-module Web interface.
  2. Determine the type of restoration that you want to perform: Restore Defaults, or Restore Configuration from File.
    1. To restore the default configuration, click MM Control → Restore Defaults in the navigation pane; then, click Restore Defaults.
    2. To restore the configuration from a file, click MM Control → Configuration File in the navigation pane; then, complete the following steps:
      1. In the Restore MM Configuration section, click Browse.
      2. Click the configuration file that you want; then, click Open. The file (including the full path) is displayed in the box next to Browse.
      3. If you do not want to make changes to the configuration file, click Restore. A new window opens with the management-module configuration information. Verify that this is the configuration that you want to restore. If it is not the correct configuration, click Cancel. If you want to make changes to the configuration file before you restore it, click Modify and Restore to open an editable configuration summary window. Initially, only the fields that allow changes are displayed. To change between this view and the complete configuration summary, view, click Toggle View at the top or bottom of the window.
        Note: When you click Restore or Modify and Restore, an alert window might open if the configuration file that you are attempting to restore was created by a management module with older firmware (and, therefore, less functionality). This alert message includes a list of systems-management functions that you must configure after the restoration is complete. Some functions require configurations on more than one window.
      4. To proceed with restoring this file to the management module, click Restore Configuration. A progress indicator is displayed as the firmware on the management module is updated. A confirmation window opens to indicate whether the update was successful.
        Note: The security settings on the Security page are not restored with the restore operation. To modify security settings, see Secure Web server and secure LDAP
  3. After you receive a confirmation that the restore process is complete, in the navigation page, click MM Control → Restart MM; then, click Restart.
  4. Click OK to confirm that you want to restart the management module.
  5. Click OK to close the browser window.
  6. To log in to the management module again, start the browser, and follow your login process.
