Hi all,

 

Hope you are doing great.

 

What will be the impact, if I run command "tmsh load sys config" instead tmsh load sys config verify.

 

Regards,

RAQS

tmsh load sys config will verify and load the config. It will change the running config.

tmsh load sys config verify will only verify the config. It will not change the running config.

Hi RAQS,

 

verify is like a dry run. It will not do anything expect of verifying syntax.

However a tmsh load sys config will also verify the config you are importing.

Depending on what you plan to do, pay attention to use the merge parameter. Otherwise you might overwrite stuff that you will desperately miss afterwards.

Thanks Daniel for your time and reply. So "tmsh load sys config" will also not make any impact while running it in production boxes ? It will not change running config ?

Thanks Daniel. So will it have an impact ? Suppose if I run this on production box then what impact I can expect ?

Raqs what was your outcome from this in PROD. In a Active-Standby. My experience it won't down the box. HOwever, you'll have changes pending messages. After hours, from a copy of the running-config you just paste that into the running config and sync changes. Crisis averted! Maybe you have to stop processes?
