Pushing/pulling configurations

You can use the sync list configuration page to push or pull sets of configuration objects to or from a target FortiADC appliance. The push/pull operation is a manual operation. It is not repeated automatically.

Before you begin:

  • Configuration synchronization must be enabled on the appliances. Go to System > Settings > Basic.
  • You must plan for the impact the configuration push/pull has on the target deployment.
  • You must have Read-Write permission for System settings.
To push or pull a configuration:
  1. Click System > Settings.
  2. Click the Sync List tab.
  3. Click Create New and complete the configuration as described in Table 126.
  4. After you have saved the configuration, it is added to the configuration table.

  5. To execute the push/pull operation, select the configuration from the table, select From or To, and click Sync.
  6. Check the Status column in the table to see the result of the push/pull operation.
  7. Log into the target appliance and check the configuration logs (Log & Report > Log Browsing > Event Log > Configuration. Notice the log entries for each configuration change resulting from the push/pull operation.
