Creating a manual Netscaler backup.

      No Comments on Creating a manual Netscaler backup.

While using the Netscaler 10.0 version there is appearantly no way to create a backup of the Netscaler files. Neither the web interface nor the Netscaler console doesn’t provide a backup facility.

Based on the undermentioned commands, which you can include in one single .SH file, the Netscaler can be saved. Restoring however takes some more effort.
