Copy MX configuration to MX in another network.

Copy MX configuration to MX in another network.

Is there a way to copy the configuration of one MX to another MX on a different network?  We have multiple branch locations, and they are basically "cookie cutter" in their configurations.  The only difference being the actual vlan IP addressing.  What I'm trying to accomplish is getting all of the vlan subnets, group policies, firewall rules, and port configurations from one MX to another.  Once the "base" configuration is there, I would change the IP addresses for the individual networks.  I've looked at the Template feature, but I don't think that will work for me.

When you create a new network, it will ask if you want to clone that networks configuration from an existing network.

You'd be able to select your existing network, then afterwards go back and modify the VLANs or changes you'd like to make.

Thank You!  Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees!  

 

That was exactly what I needed!

Kind of a big deal

Re: Copy MX configuration to MX in another network.

You should consider changing over to using configuration templates.

When you clone a network, and then change the original network nothing happens.

 

When you have a network linked to a configuration template, and you change the template (such as changing a group policy) it automatically updates every site linked to it.

I've looked into templates, but I don't think they will work for me.  It seems too restrictive on subnet setups.  Example, if I have a /24, that can only be divided into equal subnets?  2 /25, or 4/26 and so on.  I have a /24 that's carved into /26, /27, and /29 spaces.  I won't get into specifics of why they were setup that way, but I think that what's holding me back from using templates.

Re: Copy MX configuration to MX in another network.

The template applies an initial subnet configuration - I never use that.  You can then just go in afterwards and apply the IP addressing scheme you want.

Thank you sir!  I will give it a try.
