Manage Rescue Configuration

 

You are here: Administration > Devices > Config Management > Rescue.

If you inadvertently commit a configuration that denies management access, the only recourse may be to connect the console. Alternatively, you can rescue configuration that allows the management access to the device.

To load and commit the rescue configuration, press and immediately release the Config button on the chassis.

You can set or delete the rescue configuration.

To set or delete rescue configuration:

  1. Click one:
    • View rescue configuration—Displays the current rescue configuration (if it exists).

    • Set rescue configuration—Sets the current running configuration as the rescue configuration. Click OK to confirm or Cancel to return to the Rescue page.

    • Delete rescue configuration—Deletes the current rescue configuration. Click OK to confirm or Cancel to return to the Rescue page.
