Cloning Switches

Switch Engine switches provide a script called that allows you to clone one switch's setup to another switch in the following scenarios:
The script copies the following:


  • Cloning to a standalone switch using a stacking master as the source does not make the standalone switch a stacking master. The configuration cloned from a stacking master to the standalone switch is ignored by the operating system.
  • ONIE to non-ONIE or non-ONIE to ONIE cloning cannot be performed.
  • Clone application does not connect through VR-USER.
  • If the clone primary is started and stopped, the configuration dirty bit is set.
