Use this feature to back up Local Manager configuration data to an external source.

The config export command uses FTP, SCP, or USB to export the Local Manager configuration as an XML file to a specified location. The XML file can be loaded back onto the Local Manager using the config import command. Use the show config command to view the data that will be exported.

[admin@UplogixLM]# config export ?
usage: export <method> <target>
              methods: ftp, scp, usb

Export via FTP
