Backup: Partial Backup/Restore
Allow a user to create and restore backup files that contain only parts of the configuration.. users would be able to selectivly make use of various parts of the configuration in other firewalls, allowing for easier rollout of multi-site locations. As well, they can restore only parts of a backup file that are required, thus allowing for faster recovery and without affecting all areas of the box.
Either have a tool to edit a backup configuration for deployment to a new site's new ASG or have the back up file editable in plain text.
When we deploy new sites the only things that changes on the Astaro beside the WAN connection info is the device name and the 3rd set of bits for the network segments. It would be advantageous to be able to take a backup and edit it in plain text to change the config before restoring it to a new ASG like we do with our switching .
I would like all our customers Astaros bring onto a single situation regarding notifications. Therefore I would like to Import/Export the Notification settings.
I've been looking for this too for ages, too bad hasn't been implemented yet. I'm sure this would be appreciated by many.
I would especially like to be able to separately restore Network and Service Definitions.

Many customers can get a good restore after some hardware or network change. A feature needed long time ago and still it is nos developed. Maybe soon someone can retake the idea.
I've just done a "manual" copy/paste of and older Astaro-SW PC to new hardware and...
somewhere, it simply BROKE. Sure,, got a backup but restoring that simply restores the (unknown) reason for it to break.......

A great idea - would aid roll outs and would also allow you to push out a configuration in parts - so if you don't want to overwrite IP addresses, Licenses or Certificates for example.
