Restoring a Configuration File

This chapter describes how to restore an archived configuration file from the Junos Scope software Concurrent Versions System (CVS) repository to the same router from which you archived it. It also describes how to upload an imported a configuration file to any router. The configuration file is committed and overrides, replaces, or merges the active configuration file currently running on the router.

Configuration file versions are stored in the CVS repository when you archive or import them.

This chapter also describes how to save a restore operation so that you can combine it with other operations, such as archive and inventory scan, to run on specified devices in your network.

You must have superuser or read-write permission to restore a configuration file.
