Displaying a Configuration

To display the contents of a configuration file, follow these steps:

  1. In the Junos Scope main window, click Configuration > Repository > Display. The Display—Select Options dialog box appears.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • To display an archived configuration, ensure that Archived Configuration (the default selection) is selected in the Configuration File drop-down list box, then go to Step 3.
    • To display an imported configuration file, select a filename in the Configuration File drop-down list box, then skip to Step 4. Configuration filenames only appear in the Configuration File drop-down list box when you have imported a configuration file. If you have not imported a configuration file, Archive Configuration only appears in the Configuration File drop-down list box.

      The Device drop-down list box is disabled when you select an imported configuration filename because an imported configuration is not associated with any device.

  3. Select the device for which you want to display a configuration in the Device drop-down list box. Devices are displayed in the drop-down list box only when you have added them to the Junos Scope software. If no devices are displayed, you have not added a device yet. See Setting Up Devices.
  4. Click Next. The Display—Select configuration revision dialog box appears with the available configuration file revisions listed by archive date, revision level, and comment.

  5. Select the option button for the configuration file that you want to view.

    Configuration revisions are listed in the Select Configuration Revision dialog box only when you have archived or imported them. If you have not done so, the list is empty.

  6. Click Next. The configuration file contents display in the Display—View Configuration dialog box.
