Backup VDOMs

Hi

 

We have 2 Vdoms in our FortiGate and I wanted to backup my device. So should I backup only the global or all 3 of them individually?

Hey Reza,

if the goal of the backup is to be able to restore the entire FortiGate config in case something goes wrong, then a global backup is the better idea.

If you're taking backups to share configuration specifics with customers or support, then just taking VDOM backups should usually be sufficient.
