612 CHAPTER 27: MANAGING SYSTEM FILES
Specifying a Backup
In the event that part of the configuration file is invalid or otherwise
unreadable, MSS stops reading information in the configuration file and
does not use it. You can optionally specify a backup file to load if MSS
cannot load the original configuration file.
To specify a backup configuration file, use the following command:
set boot backup-configuration filename
To specify a file called backup.cfg as the backup configuration file, use
the following command:
WX1200# set boot backup-configuration backup.cfg
success: backup boot config filename set.
After enabling this feature, you can specify that a backup configuration
file not be used by entering the following command:
WX1200# clear boot backup-config
success: Backup boot config filename was cleared.
To display the name of the file specified as the backup configuration file,
enter the display boot command. For example:
WX1200# display boot
