Usage Guidelines

  • This command allows you to export a configuration file only to an FTP server or an SFTP server connected to the storage system.
    Prerequisites for using this command:
    • The FTP server or SFTP server is accessible to the storage system.
    • The FTP service or SFTP service on the server has been enabled.
    • The folder for storing a configuration file has been created.
  • The file name extension must be .dat. Otherwise, the exported configuration file cannot be used for importing configuration data.
  • If the storage system serves as a server in the file transfer with external systems, it supports the SFTP service only. If the storage system serves as a client, it supports both the FTP and SFTP services.


Export disk configuration data to an FTP server, where the IP address of the FTP server is "", the user name for logging in to the FTP server is "admin", the password is "123456", the exported disk configuration data will be stored in the root directory of the FTP server, and the exported events will be saved as the "coffer.dat" file.
