Warning

It is not possible to import the configuration of an older major release (for example, 1.0) into a newer release (for example, 2.0).

Steps: 

  1. Warning

    Do not export or import configuration between a physical PSM deployment and a virtual one. Because of the differences and limitations between physical and virtual appliances, configure the virtual appliance from scratch to ensure proper functionality. When you migrate a virtual PSM to another one, you can export and import the configuration.

    Navigate to Basic Settings > System > Import configuration.

  2. Click Browse and select the configuration file to import.

  3. Enter the password into the Encryption password field and click Upload.
