Note: The size of the failover unit archive varies depending on the Smoothwall modules installed. 50 megabytes is an average size.



  1. On the SYSTEM menu, under the Hardware submenu, click Failover.
  2. Click Generate failover setup archive. The Smoothwall generates the archive.
  3. When prompted, save the archive on suitable removable media that the failover unit can connect to, such as, USB storage media.

You can now use the archive to implement the failover settings on the failover unit.
