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.
