JNCIA Question of the Week #1 – Rescue Config

JNCIA Question of the Week #1

For our first question, we’ll start off simple. This week’s question is actually two questions, but they are closely related.

Q:

What is the command required to generate a rescue configuration, and under which mode and/or hierarchy (if applicable) is the rescue configuration created? Additionally, how can you restore this rescue configuration?

Looks like I had comments set to require moderator approval before posting. My apologies! I’ll change the settings so that comments get posted immediately.

Both maurips and Rakesh Mandava got the answer correct. The reference for the answer is here. So save a rescue configuration, enter operational mode and use the following command:
> request system configuration rescue save
And, for the second half of the question, to restore the rescue configuration, enter configuration mode and enter the following command:
# rollback rescue
# commit
Thanks for stopping by!

    Creation:
    OPERATIONAL MODE
    request System configuration rescue save
    Restoring:
    CONFIG MODE
    rollback rescue
    commit

  1. To set the current active configuration as the rescue configuration:

    user@switch> request system configuration rescue save
    user@switch>

    Activate the rescue configuration you have loaded:

    [edit]
    user@switch# rollback rescue
    load complete
    [edit]
    user@switch# commit

    To delete an existing rescue configuration:

    user@switch> request system configuration rescue delete

  2. The post has been updated with the correct answer. You were both correct.
