Backup and Restore

Configurations are automatically saved when they are set or modified. You can back up or restore the configurations to or from a local device.

If a storage device is inserted and detected, it can be used for SMM2 to preserve and migrate SEL and user configurations. SMM2 only keeps the latest configuration file in the storage device for backup and restore.
The storage device can be a USB device depending on the machine types. The storage capacity of the USB storage device should be higher than 1 GB. The support file system is FAT32. For more details, refer to “USB flash drive replacement for SMM2 data backup and restore” in Maintenance Manual of your solution.
