Switch configuration restore without reboot feature does not support the following scenarios:
  • Removing a physically present member through cfg-restore command

  • Flex-module provisioning or removal on standalone or a stack

  • Module provisioning or removal on standalone or a stack

  • Adding a VLAN when the VLAN limit is already reached by having dynamic VLANs. Due to timing issues, ports or dynamic VLANs take some time to become offline or be removed, even after applying a removal command. In such a case, restore commands fail as normal CLI commands.

  • The maximum number of backup configuration files has been increased from three to five. When the firmware is downgraded to lower versions, the show config files command displays the details to only three configuration files.

  • Restore is allowed based on the available system resource factors.
