The purpose of this document is to reveal how to take the correct backup on the Palo Alto Networks Firewalls since 99% of customers are using the wrong backup on the Palo Alto Networks Firewalls.
The backup that is discussed in this document only applies to the Palo Alto Networks Firewalls and not to the Panorama.
- Go to Device
- Select Setup
- Go to Operations
- Click on Export Device State.
- The Device State backup will be saved on the PC. Please check and make sure that the device state has been saved on the PC.
The export device state backup contains everything that was configured locally on the firewall as well as anything that was configured on the Panorama and pushed to the firewall. The named configuration snapshot backup only contains the local firewall configuration.
