Are there any known issues with using tftp to make an exact clone of two PIX515E firewalls?
I'm getting ready to upgrade to 7.0 but first want to clone my production515E to my test 515E. Both are on 6.3.4 but the production machine has 32MB of RAM while the test machine has 64MB of RAM. Using tftp I have saved the config to the tftp server. On my test 515E configured the same hostname and domain-name but different IP address.
In our configs we have multiple PIX-to-PIX VPN's with shared keys. Are the passphrases in the tftp file? Will they be copied back to the test 515E using tftp? Did I need to setup in advance the hostname and domain-name and generate a new rsa key or was this unnecessary because the config will have this info?
Many thanks for reading this and your advice.
