This article describes Cyberoam configuration backup and restore procedure.
Cyberoam takes backup of configuration which includes firewall rules, policies, network configuration, user account. Once the backup is taken, it can be restored on any appliance. Restoring older data will lead to the loss of current configuration.
Higher versions can not be restored on lower versions i.e. backup of version 9.5.3 build 22 can not be restored on version 9.5.0 build 29
Backup of higher end appliances cannot be restored on lower end appliances i.e. from CR1500i on CR500i

From Web Admin Console, go to System > Manage Data > Backup Data and take the system backup till the current date.
