Create a FireCluster Backup Image

Because the cluster master synchronizes the configuration with the cluster members, you only have to back up the image of the cluster master.

To create a backup of the cluster master from WatchGuard System Manager:

  1. Use the cluster trusted interface IP address to connect to the cluster master.
  2. Open Policy Manager for the cluster master.
  3. Save a Firebox Backup Image.

To create a backup of the cluster master from Fireware Web UI (Fireware v12.2.1 or higher):

  1. Use a web browser to connect to the interface IP address of the cluster master.
  2. Save a Firebox Backup Image.

Make sure to keep a record of the management IP addresses and passphrases in the backup image. If you restore a FireCluster from this image, you must have this information to connect to the cluster members.
