Can someone please let me know if there is a way we can download existing network configuration on the MX before its installed onsite?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Connect it to a wired access port in an environment with internet access and let it pull a config and update its firmware.
If you have a static IP at the destination, make sure you setup the static IP on the MX before shipping it off. I'll double-check on the local status page usually, before boxing up for shipping.
Ah, I see.
It depends on your scenario.
Is this an RMA-type situation, where the remote firewall is dead and you're replacing it with the same model?
If so: Add replacement firewall to the network in a warm spare-type setup. Connect fw to internet, let it pull config, ship it off. Once it's in place, remove the faulty fw from the network.
