Configuring a Boot Device for Backup with the J-Web Interface

You can use the J-Web interface to create a boot device on an alternate medium, to replace the primary boot device or serve as a backup.

To create a boot device on an alternate medium:

  1. In the J-Web interface, select Maintain>Snapshot.
  2. On the Snapshot page, enter information into the fields described in Table 274.

    Table 274: Snapshot Summary



    Your Action

    Target Media

    Specifies the boot device to copy the snapshot to.

    Note: You cannot copy software to the active boot device.

    In the list, select a boot device that is not the active boot device:

    • internal—Copies software to the internal media.
    • usb—Copies software to the device connected to the USB port.


    Copies only default files that were loaded on the internal media when it was shipped from the factory, plus the rescue configuration if one has been set.

    Note: After a boot device is created with the default factory configuration, it can operate only in an internal media slot.

    To copy only the default factory configuration plus a rescue configuration if one exists, select the check box.


    Partitions the medium. This process is usually necessary for boot devices that do not already have software installed on them.

    To partition the medium that you are copying the snapshot to, select the check box.

  3. Click Snapshot.
  4. Click OK.
