Setting or Deleting the Rescue Configuration (CLI Procedure)

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 an EX Series switch 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 set the current active configuration as the rescue configuration:

user@switch> request system configuration rescue save


To delete an existing rescue configuration:

user@switch> request system configuration rescue delete
