Use configuration jobs to replicate configuration from one instance to multiple instances

You can use the Configuration Jobs feature of Citrix ADM to extract a particular configuration from a Citrix ADC instance and replicate it on multiple instances.

For example, you might have configured both load balancing and front-end optimization (FEO) on a Citrix ADC instance for your deployment. However, now you want to replicate only the FEO configuration to other Citrix ADC instances.

To retrieve and replicate configuration from one instance to other Citrix ADC Instances:

  1. Navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs, and then click Create Job.

    Retrieve and replicate configuration

  2. Specify the job name and the type of instance.

  3. Select Instance as the Configuration Source and select the source instance whose configuration you want to replicate. Select the type of configuration that you want to extract. If you select the “Configuration by time duration,” set the time period when you had run this configuration, and then click Extract.

    The number of commands run on that instance in the time duration you selected is displayed on the screen as highlighted in the following image.

    Retain only the commands related to FEO and manually delete the commands related to load balancing, or commands related to any other configuration, and then click Next.

  5. Click Add Instances and add the instances on which you want to apply the FEO configuration. Click OK, and then. click Next.

  6. If you have specified variables in the commands, on the Specify Variable Values tab, click Download Input Key File. In the downloaded file, specify values for the variables, and then upload the file to Citrix ADM.

  7. On the Job Preview tab, you can evaluate and verify the commands to be run on each instance or instance group.

  8. On the Execute tab, click Finish to run the job on the selected Citrix ADC instances.
