From BIG-IP 5050 TO WORKING (BIG-IP VPR-B2250) to BIG-IP 5050 TO WORKING (BIG-IP VPR-B2250), we intend to copy the objects and other configurations. If someone knows how to do it using script, please let me know. I want to copy the items below.
virtual, nodes, pools, monitor instances
interfaces, nats, self ips,snats,trunks, tunnels, vlans.
Thank you for the kb, i was wondering as there is existing configuration for viprion, if i load the ucs file from boh-ip 5050 to virpiron what willh happen to the existing config of virpion?
@angerica If you are loading two devices into one VPR you could try creating an SCF of each device and then using the "load sys config from-terminal merge" as @Mohamed_Salah_ has mentioned below. The following article is how you would go about creating the SCF file. This will take some manual editing of the configuration that you load for referenced interfaces but it would speed things up a bit.
Presume the Viprion has vCMP guests? And you are migrating a config from an older device to a vCMP guest? If so, you can copy over the UCS and load it on the vCMP guest. Please take a look at the following:
The vCMP guest will already be licensed by virtue of the Host/Chassis being licensed. However, you will need to make sure the appropriate modules are licensed. You would then be able to export the UCS from the old unit, and import into the new vCMP guest. Load the UCS with no license and no platform checks. Then remap the VLANs to the appropriate interfaces... which has to be done on the Host! So, make sure on the host you have those VLANs defines with the same name, attach to the vCMP guest, and then you should be good to go.
Since you don't need all config, and just pool and virtual servers and some LTM objects, you can open the bigip.conf file (from the source device that you need to copy config from), and start copying the configuration as text, and then migrate these objects using the below command:
Access new device
#load sys config from-terminal merge verify
and verify for any erros and try to fix them, Then run the same command without verify.
#load sys config from-terminal merge
