It appears you're using Config Editor to do a wholesale running config replacement, rather than NetConfig for incremental config change. In that case, you can schedule a Sync Archive job against the target router: RME - Config Mgmt - Archive Mgmt - Sync Archive, and make sure the "Poll device before configuration collection" option is *not* checked. Of course, you'd want to wait until the Sync Archive job comes back "successful" before proceeding with the config replacement.
