Clearpass Backups

Trying to automate the backup procedure without using the data puller software.  Clearpass is currently performing daily autobackups..  I will write a script to grab this file and offload to another system  Where is this autobackup file being stored?

Re: Clearpass Backups

Are you on ClearPass 6.5? There is native backup functionality that will
copy files from ClearPass to a remote SCP or SFTP server.

No, I am on 6.4.4.  Maybe worth it to upgrade?

Re: Clearpass Backups

O you mean page 442?  I already have the autobackups working.. I need the location of the file so I can offload it.

Re: Clearpass Backups

Cappalli made a typo.  check the clearpass 6.5 userguide on page 522. 

Or check "Administration » External Servers » File Backup Servers"  on a 6.5 CPPM.

 

You'll see how to configure an external backupserver that is configurable for SFTP or SCP.

OK, I upgraded to 6.5 and setup a file backup server.  Does it offload the backup file daily?  how can I test the intitial communication?
