Backup and Restore Cyberoam Configuration


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

Step 1. Backup a configuration

Log on to the Web Admin Console of the Appliance whose backup is to be taken.

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




Once the backup is taken successfully, you will be prompted to download and save the backup file.



If backup is to be restored onto another appliance, mail this saved backup file to the Administrator who is going to restore this backup onto another appliance.


Step 2. Restore a configuration

Log on to the Web Admin Console of the Appliance onto which backup is to be restored.

Upload backup file

Upload backup file from System > Manage Data > Restore Data and specify name of the backup file to be uploaded i.e. the backup file saved in step 2.






Restore backup file

Log on to Telnet Console, go to Option 5 Cyberoam Management>Option 6 Restore Backup
