Question:

Static route configuration which are stored within the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory should be saved into a backup. Is it possible to make them part of the CA API Gateway backup/restore feature?

Answer:

The /opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/config/backup/cfg/backup_manifest can be enhanced with the static route files, then the backup will covers those files.

A user just has to add for example, following additional entry:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth1

 

 

 

Additional Information:

It is possible to add additional files into the backup, if they are stored within one of the directories that have been already available in the default /opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/config/backup/cfg/backup_manifest file.

It is also possible to move files into one of the directories mentioned within the /opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/config/backup/cfg/backup_manifest file. They would be collected by the backup as long as the backup_manifest has been customized accordingly.

 

It is not possible to add new directories within the backup_manifest, as they would just be ignored by the backup utility.
