Preserve History of Configuration Changes in CCC using CCL

Applicable Version: 02.03.0 Build 307 onwards

Overview

There might be instances when the administrator wants to roll back to a previous configuration due to some existing erroneous configurations or functional difficulties.CCC facilitates Policy Version Control to maintain revision history of configuration changes of managed appliances.

 

Revisions are the configuration changes synchronized by CCC and stored in CCC repository.This feature helps administrator to achieve this objective without putting manual efforts. CCL also includesSystem Snapshot which is a backup of entire configuration where OS is considered as the base version.

 

Once the CCL is enables, it allows the administrator to:

·        View change list of affected configuration settings

·        View details of configuration changes

·        Compare different versions of configurations

·        Take configuration snapshot

·        Restore system configuration snapshot

·        Roll-back to previous configuration

 

Note:

·        There can be maximum three snapshots for an appliance.

·        Configuration roll back is possible up to the last snapshot only.

·        If an appliance is no longer managed by CCC, the revision history for the appliance will remain in CCC until not purged manually.

Scenario

Configure and manage Change Control in CCC.

Configuration

You must be logged on to the Web Admin Console as an administrator with Read-Write permission for relevant feature(s).

Step 1: Enable CCL

CCL (Change Control List) for CCC appliances can be enabled in the following three ways:

 
1.    Enable CCL by default for all new appliances to be added

 

Go to Management Console > CCC Management > System > Settings > Change Control Settings and check Enable Change Control and click Apply to enable CCL.

Once enabled, CCC will maintain configuration change list for all new appliances added. A Change List will comprise of revision-wise detailed change list of each configuration synchronized by CCC.

Please note that if you want to enable CCL for existing appliances, check Cascade on all managed appliances along with Enable Change Control as shown in the image below.

 

2.    Enable CCL for specific added appliances

 

If CCL is not enabled by default for all managed appliances (as shown in the previous step), you can enable it for selected appliances.

 

·        Go to Management Console > Appliance Management > Appliances and select the appliance for which CCL is to be enabled.

·        Check Enable Change Control (CCL) to enable CCL for the appliance.

·        Click OK to complete.

 

Note:


Enable Change Control option will be disabled if the selected Cyberoam has firmware version below 10.6.1.
 


3.    
Enable CCL at the time of adding new appliance

 

If CCL is not enabled by default for all new appliances, you can enable it while adding the appliance. 

 

·        Go to Management Console > Appliance Management > Appliances and click Add to add a new appliance.

·        Check Enable Change Control (CCL) to enable CCL for the appliance.

·        Complete other appliance settings.

·        Click OK to complete.

 
 

Step 2: View Configuration Changes


Configuration changes in CCC are based on the Revisions of the Policy versions. Revisions are the number of changes made to an entity where an entity can be an Object, Policy, Rule etc.

To view and manage configuration revisions of managed appliances, go to Management Console > Appliance Management > Change Control. Select the appliance from the list of appliances to view the revisions.

 

Click to view details of the revision.

 

Revision History

To view the revision history, click View Revision


To view the details of the revision in XML format, click   against the revision.

To view the difference with previous version, click  .

Step 3: Manage System Snapshots

System Snapshot is a backup of entire configuration where OS is the base version.

System Snapshots are automatically generated in following cases:

·        If the managed appliance is in unsynchronized state and any configuration change is pending, CCC tries to synchronize the appliance and generates System Snapshot

·        After a factory reset of managed appliance

·        After a firmware upgrade on managed appliance

·        If CCL is enabled by default, System Snapshot will be taken each month automatically.

 

Alternatively,the administrator can take system snapshot(s) manually also, go to Management Console > Appliance Management > Change Control and click Create Snapshot.

Step 4: ManageRollback of configuration changes

The administrator can revert the configuration changes using CCC’s Change Control functionality.To revert the configuration changes done in the revision, go to Management Console > Appliance Management > Change Control and click against the revision.
