Backing Up and Restoring Base Images

Once you have installed a base image on
Content Analysis
, it does not change, even after you create iVM profiles based on that image. Therefore, backing it up needs to occur only once. You can create a back up using one of these methods:
  • On
    Services > Sandboxing > Symantec On-box Sandboxing
    click
    Manage
    for the base image and then click
    Export Base Image
    .
  • Use the "Download Windows Base Image" RAPI
    /system/vm/bases/
    <vmb_id>
    /bin
    .
Documentation for the RAPIs is available.
To restore a backed up base image use one of these methods:
  • On
    Services > Sandboxing > Symantec On-box Sandboxing
    click
    Import previously exported base image
    . See Add Windows Base Image.
  • Use the "Upload Windows Base Image" RAPI
    /system/vm/bases/post
    .

Backing Up and Restoring iVM Profiles

After you have finished configuring an iVM profile you can create a back up using one of these methods:
  • Use the command.
  • Use the "Export iVM Profile" RAPI
    /system/vm/profiles/export
    .
To restore a backed up profile you must first restore the base image on which it depends, and then use one of these methods to restore the profile:
  • Use the
    ma-actions profiles imports download
    command.
  • Use the "Download Exported iVM Profile" RAPI
    /system/vm/profiles/export/
    <vme_id>
    /bin
    .
