How to migrate configurations from an existing SA-x000 / SA-x500 to a new MAG device

Solution

Important!

When migrating from SA or MAG to PSA device, please refer to KB40391 - SA/MAG Series to PSA Series Hardware Upgrade Guide.

When migrating from a SA-x000 / SA-x500 to a MAG device, the recommendation is to use the binary import and export functionality.  Prior to the migration, ensure the following are true:
  • Secure Access (SA) device is running at least OS version 6.1R1
  • MAG device is running on an equal or higher OS version than the SA device
IMPORTANT: If the SA device is running a higher version than the MAG device, the binary import will fail.
 

To export the binary configurations from the SA device:
  1. In the admin console, select Maintenance > Import/Export > Configuration.
  2. Under Export, enter a password if you’d like to password-protect the configuration file.
  3. Click Save Config As to save the file.  By default, the filename will be system.cfg
  4. In the admin console, select Maintenance > Import/Export > User Accounts.
  5. Under Export, enter a password if you’d like to password-protect the configuration file.
  6. Click Save Config As to save the file. By default, the filename will be user.cfg

To import the binary configurations on the MAG device
  1. In the admin console, select Maintenance > Import/Export > Configuration.
  2. Specify whether you want to import the Secure Access Service certificate. Note: The certificate is not imported unless you check the Import Device Certificate(s)? checkbox.
  3. Select Import everything except network settings and licenses — This option imports all configuration settings except the network, cluster and license settings.


     
  4. Browse to the configuration file, which is named system.cfg by default.
  5. Enter the password you specified for the file. If you did not specify a password before exporting the file, then leave this field blank.
  6. Click Import Config.


     
  7. In the admin console, select Maintenance > Import/Export > User Accounts.
  8. Browse to the configuration file, which is named user.cfg by default.
  9. Enter the password you specified for the file. If you did not specify a password before exporting the file, then leave this field blank.
  10. Click Import Config.
