Is save sys config required for iControl/REST changes?

Hi Community,

 

I'm running an Ansible playbook using a variation of Ansible Modules/REST calls to make changes.

When is it required to do a save sys config to apply running to system config?

  • GUI --> no
  • any type tmsh config --> yes
  • Ansible modules / REST --> ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Stefan,

 

Yes, it's indeed required if you want to save the running config to stored config. (iControl is more closely linked to TMSH than the GUI) Same with TMSH though; you don't need to save the config in order to make it active.

 

See here for some further details on it:

Hope this helps.
