Save the configuration of a chassis partition

When you finish comfiguring a chassis partition, it is a good idea to save the configuration as a backup. You can save a chassis partition configuration from the partition CLI.
  1. Log in to the command line interface (CLI) of the chassis partition using an account with admin access.
    When you log in to the system, you are in user (operational) mode.
  2. Change to config mode.
    config
    The CLI prompt changes to include
    (config)
    .
  3. Save the chassis partition configuration.
    system database config-backup name partitionbackup1.xml
    Chassis partition configuration backup files are located in
    /var/F5/partition/configs/
    .
  4. Consider exporting the configuration backup onto a separate system. Later if you need it, you can import it back to this system.
  5. To return the system to the state it was in when the backup was made, load the configuration backup onto the system.
    system database config-restore name partitionbackup1.xml
    system database config-restore name partitionbackup1.xml response Succeeded.
    If the restore operation fails, the system automatically uses the previous configuration.
  6. Leave config mode
    exit
You have a backup of the chassis partition configuration that you can restore on the system if needed.
