RVS4000 - Will config backup from v1 restore to v2 properly?
I'm replacing an older (& failing) RVS4000 v1 with a new V2. I need to minimize downtime. Will a config backup from the old v1 restore properly to a new v2 (all have newest firmware)? There are a lot of tweaks including several VPNs and to do it all manually is not desirable.

Unfortunately it's a hard one to say for definitely, but I honestly don't think it would work. The configuration may hold unique nvram settings that could permanently brick your router if the restore was forced onto it.
Best take the backup configuration, then restore the v1 router to factory defaults,then do another backup, then do a restore to factory on the v2 router. Then compare the two fresh backups using something like notepad++. I would strongly advise though not to use a v1 config on a v2 unless your 100% sure.
