    SonicWALL Configuration Backup is plain text file (was expecting .exp)

    ccameronweir

      We're trying out CatTools as a centralized config management solution for a few hundred SonicWALL appliances, and have run into a bit of a problem.

       

      We can add devices to CatTools, and run the Device.Backup.Running Config activity against them, but the file that the activity creates isn't in the format I thought it would be. Our techs will be expecting an encoded .exp file in the event they need to restore a config, not a plaintext file. Are there custom scripts/activities required to back up a config this way? I feel like the answer is probably "yes", but I haven't yet located an example.

       

      Can anyone point me in the right direction for getting this to work?
