Group-based Firmware Download Restore

When the --noAutoCommit option is used with the firmware download execution, the device retains the previous firmware image. It enables you to test out the new firmware and decide to keep it by issuing a firmware download commit or go back to the previous firmware image by issuing a firmware download restore.

You can also apply the firmware download commit to all the devices in the fabric simultaneously. However, the firmware download restore implicitly reloads the device, so that the firmware download restore must be staged to prevent and minimize traffic loss.

You can invoke the firmware download restore for a fabric or for a set of IP addresses. In both the cases, the restore is applied in the same group order defined by the prepared list.

IP addresses based restore must be called for devices in the same fabric.

Group execution policy is inherited from what was specified in the firmware download execute CLI.
