Requesting the Complete Configuration Using NETCONF

 

In a NETCONF session with a device running Junos OS, to request the entire candidate configuration or the complete configuration in the open configuration database, a client application encloses <get-config> and <source> tag elements and the <candidate/> tag in an <rpc> tag element:

Note

If a client application issues the Junos XML protocol <open-configuration> operation to open a specific configuration database before executing the <get-config> operation, setting the source to <candidate/> retrieves the configuration data from the open configuration database. Otherwise, the server returns the configuration data from the candidate configuration.

To request the entire active configuration, a client application encloses <get-config> and <source> tag elements and the <running/> tag in an <rpc> tag element:

The NETCONF server encloses its reply in <rpc-reply>, <data>, and <configuration> tag elements. For information about the attributes in the opening <configuration> tag, see Specifying the Source for Configuration Information Requests Using NETCONF.
