Configuration File Management

System configuration information is stored in the configuration file, and it is stored and displayed in the format of command line. The information that is used to initialize the Hillstone device in the configuration file is known as the initial configuration information. If the initial configuration information is not found, the Hillstone device will use the default parameters for the initialization. The information being taking effect is known as the current configuration information.

System initial configuration information includes current initial configuration information (used when the system starts) and backup initial configuration information. System records the latest ten saved configuration information, and the most recently saved configuration information for the system will be recorded as the current initial configuration information. The current configuration information is marked as Startup; the previous nine configuration information is marked with number from 0 to 8, in the order of save time.

You can not only export or delete the saved configuration files, but also export the current system configurations.
