CLI Reference

restore image

Use this command to restore a firmware file from an FTP, SCP, or TFTP server.

Back up your configuration before entering this command. This procedure can perform large changes to your configuration, including, if you are downgrading the firmware, resetting all changes that you have made to the FortiMail unit’s configuration file and reverting the system to the default values for the firmware version, including factory default settings for the IP addresses of network interfaces. For information on creating a backup, see the FortiMail Administration Guide.

Syntax
