Delete all configuration data in the existing candidate configuration or open configuration database.
If a client application issues the Junos XML protocol
<open-configuration> operation to open a specific
configuration database before executing the
<delete-config> operation on the target
<candidate/>, Junos OS performs the
<delete-config> operation on the open configuration database. Otherwise, the operation
is performed on the candidate configuration.
<target> tag element
and its contents are explained separately.
