load-scripts-from-flash (Scripts)


Hierarchy Level


Load commit, event, op, SNMP, and library scripts from the device’s flash memory instead of the hard disk.

When you configure this statement, all commit, event, op, SNMP, and script library scripts are loaded from the /config/scripts directory in flash memory under the subdirectory appropriate to the script type. To ensure that the current versions of the scripts are executed, you must manually move scripts from the hard disk to flash memory. They are not moved automatically.


If you do not include the load-scripts-from-flash statement, scripts are executed from the /var/db/scripts directory on the device's hard disk.
