structurally invalid, the restore operation fails and an “Unsupported
Operation” message is returned.

and loads the selected configuration.

statement(s) with the current configuration. If there are conflicting
statements, the statements in the incoming configuration override
those in the current configuration.

Engines. This option is not displayed when you have selected a device

If the selected device is a BXOS device, click the Sync
the Startup Configuration with Running check box. This option, when
checked, synchronizes the running configuration with the startup configuration.
