Saving Configuration Changes

Mobility Master has the running configuration images. The running-config holds the current controller configuration, including all pending changes which have yet to be saved. To view the running-config, use the following command:

(host) [mynode]# show running-config

When you make configuration changes via the CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions., those changes affect the current running configuration only. If the changes are not saved, they will be lost after the Mobility Master reboots. To save your configuration changes so they are retained after the Mobility Master reboots, use the following command in the enable or config mode:

(host) ^[mynode]# write memory

Saved Configuration

The running configuration can also be saved to a file or sent to a TFTPTrivial File Transfer Protocol. The TFTP is a software utility for transferring files from or to a remote host. server for backup or transfer to another system.

The ^ indicator appears between the (host) and [node] portions of the command prompt if the configuration contains unsaved changes. ArubaOS includes the following command prompts:

(host)^[mynode] – This indicates unsaved configuration.

(host)*[mynode] – This indicates available crash information.

(host) [mynode] – This indicates a saved configuration.

Commands That Reset the Mobility Master or AP

If you use the CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. to modify a currently provisioned and running radio profile, those changes take place immediately; you do not reboot the Mobility Master or the AP for the changes to affect the current running configuration. Certain commands, however, automatically force the Mobility Master or AP to reboot. You may want to consider current network loads and conditions before issuing these commands, as they may cause a momentary disruption in service as the unit resets. Note also that changing the lms-ip parameter in an AP system profile associated with an AP group will cause all APs in that AP group to reboot.
