Quickly getting a Nokia IP appliance restored

How to quickly restore the base IPSO config (not firewall policies).

Config will previously have been backed up ( /config/active ) to a management server as myfirewall-active.txt.

1) scp the active.txt to the Nokia IP Appliance

testbox# scp myfirewall-active.txt admin@myappliance:/config/active.txt

2) rename the current config

myappliance# cd /config
myappliance# mv active active.old
myappliance# mv active.txt active

3) Reload the device

All base configuration is now restored (interfaces, static routes etc etc). Now you can establish SIC and push the policy.
