You can restore a snapshot to change the working configuration
to that of the snapshot. Restoring the snapshot merges objects from the snapshot
into the BIG-IQ Centralized Management configuration, and
removes all active locks. No objects in the BIG-IQ configuration are removed. Once
the restore process starts, you cannot modify the BIG-IQ configuration until the
process is completed or canceled. If the process is canceled, all configuration
settings are rolled back.
Restoring a snapshot in one component can impact
other components that have dependent configuration objects. We recommend that when
you restore configurations that involve multiple components, you use snapshots that
were created at approximately the same time. Restoring the Local Traffic &
Network component can require a restore of other dependent components.
