Concepts Related to Configuration Replacement

Configuration replacement is a function used to replace file configurations, segment configurations, and character strings and to paste differential configurations.

  • File configuration replacement: Replaces all the running configurations on the current device with a configuration file that contains all the configurations of the device.
  • Segment configuration replacement: Replaces the configuration only in a specified view or in a scope restricted using the <replace/> tag, because the specified configuration file contains only the configuration of this view or because the <replace/> tag restricts the replacement scope in a configuration file that contains all configurations.
  • Character string replacement: Replaces a specified character string in the current view of a device.
  • Pasting of differential configurations: Queries the configurations that are different between the current device and other devices, pastes the differential configurations to the current device, and commits the configurations.

Application Scenarios for Configuration Replacement

In a scenario where a management server manages a device, the server stores the configurations required by the device. If the configurations on the management server change, the configurations on the device also need to be changed accordingly. In this case, you can load the configuration file on the management server and use this file to replace the configurations on the device, achieving configuration consistency between the management server and the device.

If one of the devices with the same configurations encounters a configuration change, the configurations of other devices must be changed accordingly to keep configuration consistency. In this case, you can query the configuration differences and use the configuration replacement function to paste the differential configurations to those devices. This ensures that the configurations on all the devices are the same.

Benefits of Configuration Replacement

Configuration replacement facilitates system maintenance. During system running, you can load a configuration file transferred from a specified file server or a previously saved configuration file, and import configurations in the file to the current device in CLI mode to replace the running configurations. This function does not require system restart or configuration one by one, greatly improving operation efficiency and avoiding mistakes caused by manual modification.
