The Pica8 PicOS provides several commands to save, load, and execute PicOS configuration files, as detailed in this document.

The save command saves configuration files in the /pica/config/admin directory. The load and execute commands look for configuration files in the same directory.

You can use the save command in L2/L3 configuration mode to save the running configuration to a file. The following example demonstrates how to save the running configuration to a file named myconfig.conf.

admin@Spine1# save ?
Possible completions:
  <file name>                   Save running configuration to specified file
admin@Spine1# save myconfig.conf
Save done.

The configuration saved earlier in a file can be loaded or applied using the load merge or load override command in L2/L3 mode.

admin@Spine1# load ?
Possible completions:
  merge                         Merge the loaded configuration to the current running configuration
  override                      Override the current running configuration with the loaded configuration

The load override command completely replaces the running configuration with the configuration in a file (saved earlier). The following example replaces the running configuration with the configuration in a file named myconfig.conf.

admin@Spine1# load override ?
Possible completions:
  <text>                        Local file name
  myconfig.conf                 Size: 16643, Last changed: Wed Sep  9 21:33:21 2015 
admin@Spine1# load override myconfig.conf
Loading config file...
Config file was loaded successfully.

NOTE:

When you fail to load configuration file by using the load override command, you can try using load merge command to load the configuration file.


The load merge command merges the configuration in a file (saved earlier) with the running configuration. The following example merges the configuration in a file named myconfig.conf with the running configuration.

admin@Spine1# load merge ?
Possible completions:
  <text>                        Local file name
  myconfig.conf                 Size: 16643, Last changed: Wed Sep  9 21:33:21 2015
admin@Spine1# load merge myconfig.conf
Loading config file...
Config file was applied successfully.
