system database restore
The factory-default and remote options were introduced prior to release 2.1.1.
Starting with release 2.1.1, the local option is supported for the BTI7801.
Starting with release 4.2, the retain-ip option is supported.
Starting with release 4.2, you are allowed to restore the database from a file with any filename.
Starting with release 4.2, you can restore the database from any backup as long as the backup is for a chassis of the same type (BTI7801 to BTI7801, BTI7802 to BTI7802, BTI7814 to BTI7814).
This command restores the system to a backed-up database or to the factory-default database.
This restores the factory-default database.
This restores the backed-up database from local chassis storage.
This option is only available for the BTI7801 chassis.
This restores the backed-up database found at the specified location.
Starting with release 4.2, you are allowed to restore the database from a backed-up database file whose filename has been changed from the original filename assigned by the system during the backup operation. In earlier releases, you can only restore the database from a file whose filename is unchanged from the filename assigned by the system during the backup operation.
Starting with release 4.2, you can restore from any backup as long as the backup configuration is for a chassis of the same chassis type. In earlier releases, you can only restore the database to the same chassis from which the database was backed up.
