I upgraded from one BSC to another for example a BSC-5000 to a BSC-5200. Can I restore the configuration from the BSC-5000 to the BSC-5200?

    Q: I upgraded from one BSC to another for example a BSC-5000 to a BSC-5200. Can I restore the configuration from the BSC-5000 to the BSC-5200?

     

    A: Yes. On the BSC-5000 for example go to maintenance>configuration backup/restore and backup your configuration. Then on the BSC-5200 for example go to maintenance>configuration>backup/restore and restore the configuration that you previously backed up from the BSC-5000. You can restore a configuration from any BSC model to any BSC model as long as the BSC that you are restoring to is running the same or newer software release. You cannot restore a configuration from a newer software release to an older software release. If you are running version 5.2 or prior, you must upgrade to 5.3.2.6 first to adjust the configuration file before restoring it to a BSC running 6.x.
