    Hi @Lorenzo_CRC_Sistemi

    You can go to Maintenance > File Manager > Configuration File > Select “startup-config.conf” and Download it.

    Rename configuration and Upload to another USG310 in the same path.

    Click “Apply” button after selected configuration which you uploaded.


    Note: Make sure both of USG310 are working on same firmware version to prevent applying configuration fail.

    Thanks for your reply Stanley,

    this has been my first attempt...

    but the device reboot takes a long long time and ends with errors. I think it depends from certificates and all the setups that cannot be replaced on the new unit.

    I think i have to handle the device via console port

    Hi @Lorenzo_CRC_Sistemi

    If you have imported any certificates before, you have to imported certificates into new unit first. Otherwise it will apply configuration fail.

    You can also share console log to us to make sure if there is others reason leads it.
