Local Director failover

If a failover occurs from the primary to secondary local director, what is the state of the config on the newly active standby device. During normal operation, I believe the standby device only stores the config in memory. Does this mean that if it is rebooted after it has taken over from the failed primary, the config is lost? What is the recommendation regarding safeguarding the config on the standby active device whilst the primary is being attended to?

Re: Local Director failover

As you mentioned, when the standby takes over the configuration is stored in the memory and the previous configuration on the standby is erased. There is a bug with the local director not replicating its configuration to the standby unit correctly.

That's probably the reason why the standby might have rebooted. I have no idea on how to safeguard the configuration. Any suggestions out there??
