archive-sites (Event Policy)


Hierarchy Level


For a given destination name, configure archive sites to which an event policy can transfer files. To archive files, you must reference the destination name in the event policy. If you specify more than one archive site for a particular destination name, the device attempts to transfer to the first archive site in the list, moving to the next site only if the transfer fails.



The archive destination specified as a file URI, an active or passive FTP URI, a Secure FTP (SFTP) URI, or a Secure Copy (SCP) URI. Local device directories are also supported (for example, /var/tmp/).
