Summary
From the System > Update > Snapshots page, you can create, manage, restore and import local snapshots for your IPS device. System snapshots can be restored on the same software version on which they were created. After restoring a snapshot, the device will always restart. Before taking a system snapshot, ensure that a correctly formatted compact flash card is available.

CAUTION: You can apply a single snapshot to multiple devices. However, applying the snapshot to devices managed by an SMS can cause a device ID conflict. Do not apply a snapshot to multiple devices when managed by SMS.
