Summary
To configure device settings that are common across multiple devices, the SMS provides export and import functions of the settings. The first step is to configure a device with the settings that you want to use across multiple devices. The settings can be exported to a device settings file. The device settings in the file can then be imported into multiple devices. This option is useful when deploying multiple IPS devices that have the same or similar configuration requirements. For devices with similar configurations requirements, you can set up base settings that can then be tuned on each device after the settings file is imported.
