Configuring the Master Source for a Commit Script
You can store a master copy of each commit script in a central repository. This eases file management because you can make changes to the master commit script in one place and then update the copy on each router where the commit script is currently enabled.
To specify the location of the master source for a commit script, include the source statement at the [edit system scripts commit file filename] hierarchy level:
- filename—Name of the commit script.
- url—URL of the commit script’s master source file. Specify the source as a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) URL, FTP URL, or secure copy (scp)-style remote file specification.
Including the source statement in the configuration does not affect the local copy of the commit script until you issue the set refresh command as described in Updating a Commit Script from the Master Source. At that point, the master copy is retrieved from the specified URL and overwrites the local copy.
