Remote backup

Jump to solution

Due to the space limitation , I need to take backup directly to the FTP server,using below format;

FW01>add backup ftp ip VALUE path /some/path/ username VALUE password plain

How do I confirm on the integrity of the file uploaded to FTP server so I can restore it with confidence without any disaster.?

 

Best Regards,

Prashant

If it's an option, try restoring backup on a similar device or VM (with adjusted interface names) in the lab Smiley Happy

Else just try opening the compressed tar ball either from CLI or use any app that can handle TGZ, TAR archiving. See if you can browse through contents.

I haven't seen once backup file failing but never say never

Just my two cents; i would create a script that verifies the md5 hash of original file and transferred file. If there is a deviation report this error via mail.

I would recommend to review Indeni:

Check Point Firewalls | Indeni 

how to verify backup?

a. test the tgz file on source and dst machines 

# tar -tvzf <file name> 

b. compare MD5 on source and dst machines
