ONS defaults text and database files

Unanswered Question
Apr 26th, 2009


im trying to understand the difference between the ONS 15454 defaults which can be loaded and saved as a text file (Node > Provisioning > Defaults), versus the database backup and restore option (Node > Maintenance > Database), which can also be used to restore the defaults via the defaults.db that comes with the ONS 15454 CD.

Are both required txt and db file required to restore defaults ?

Do they contain the same info ?



I have this problem too.

1. Default DB on the CD is to restore back to factory settings. As if you just received the Chassis from Cisco.

2. Database backup is your current Node information data backup. This will restore your provisioning(circuits) and Node information back to the node. This can also be used to get a new chassis to be identical to another chassis.
