Backing up and restoring Edge Transport

In the c:Program filesMicrosoftExchange ServerScripts directory there exists a powershell script called ExportEdgeConfig.ps1.  You can backup your Edge Transport by executing the following command
From Exchange management shell
./ExportEdgeConfig -cloneConfigData:”c:CloneConfigData.xml”
To restore:
./importedgeconfig -CloneConfigData:”C:CloneConfigData.xml’ -IsImport $false -CloneConfigAnswer:”C:CloneConfigAnswer.xml”
This will create a CloneConfigAnswer.xml file.  If everything was correct it will be blank if not you will have to modify it and import it.
./importedgeconfig -CloneConfigData:”c:CloneConfigData.xml” -IsImport $true -CloneConfigAnswer:”c:cloneConfigAnswer.xml”
 
 

Backup and restore the config on an ASA/Pix using a TFTP server

First thing you need to do is find a free TFTP server there are piles of them out there as a simple google search for TFTP server will show.
First console, telnet, or ssh into your ASA device then issue the following commands
en
<enter your enable password>
conf t
<enter your configure terminal password>
copy startup-config tftp
A prompt will come up “Address or name of remote host []? 
Type in the ip address of the TFTP server you initially setup. 
Next prompt is “Destination filename [startup-config]?
Leave this field just hit <enter>
Congrats you’ve just backed up your config.
 
Now for the restore process:
en
<enter your enable password>
conf t
<enter your configure terminal password>
copy tftp startup-config
Address or name of remote host []?
Type in your IP here of your local computer where you installed the TFTP server
Source filename []?
In the first process we left the filename at default so it should be startup-config
You should see something like this
Accessing tftp://172.16.11.50/startup-config…!!
Writing system file…
!!
5277 bytes copied in 0.470 secs
That’s all there is to it now just issue the command reload and your ASA will reboot to the startup config which we just copied.  It should be noted you have not restored until you issue the reload command because you’re still running the running image not the startup one that we’ve copied over.
