A few months ago I started working at a company that works with Checkpoint appliances and has implemented the MDS R80.40 solution for managing its gateways. I already have experience managing Checkpoint equipment but it is my first experience in an environment where there is an MDS. I would like to know which commands are good to be able to generate the backups of the system and policies, since in an SMS I used the "migrate import" and "migrate export" commands to make the backup of policies and then saved the output of the "show configuration" command for OS backup.
I would like to know, for this particular case, if the "migrate" commands would be the best alternative and if I have to do it for each subdomain or export the configuration in general. Also, in the documentation I found the "mds_backup" command but I would like to know the differences with migrate command. Finally, for the OS, would you recommend me to keep saving the output of the "show configuration" command or do I have to make an additional backup for the OS configuration.
Thank you very much in advance.
