Hi, I have successfully set up Web Filtering and I have done it using users rather than by IP address so that quota time will spread across all devices that the specific user owns. (E.g., I own an iPad, an iPhone and a laptop and so I sign in as netguy101 on all of them, and then the time for my quota is used up no matter which device I use. Otherwise, each device would get its own quota time) I prefer to have it set up by user for other reasons as well.
My QUESTION is, how do I make the authentication records persist in a restart? I would like to be able to shut down the UTM for maintenance at night, but if I do that, the next day all of my family has to sign in on all of their devices again. Is there a way to make it so that the Authentication file (wherever it is kept) can persist during restart, or maybe even be copied back to the UTM after the restart so that everyone is not challenged again?
