Setting or Deleting the Rescue Configuration

A rescue configuration is a well-known configuration that recovers a switch from a configuration that denies management access. You set a current committed configuration to be the rescue configuration through the J-Web interface or CLI.

If someone inadvertently commits a configuration that denies management access to the QFX Series, and the console port is not accessible, you can overwrite the invalid configuration and replace it with the rescue configuration by using the LCD panel on the switch. The rescue configuration is a previously committed, valid configuration. We recommend that the rescue configuration include the IP address (accessible from the network) for the management port.

To view, set, or delete the rescue configuration using the J-Web interface, select Maintain > Config Management > Rescue. On the Rescue page, you can perform the following tasks:
