The following sections describe how to set the options:

Configuration File Options

The Configuration Files page lists the configuration files currently saved on the node. The last booted configuration file is listed with Yes in the Active column. From here, you can perform the following tasks when you select a configuration file:

■   Click Switch To Active to load the selected configuration file, applying its settings.
■   Click Delete to remove the selected file from the system.

Configuration Actions

The active configuration is the combination of the last booted configuration file and all unsaved commands that led to the current running configuration. On the Configuration page, you can perform the following tasks with the Actions menu:

■   Click Action > Save to save the running configuration to the active configuration file (the one listed in bold in the Configuration Files table, above).
■   Click Action > Revert to discard the running configuration and apply the contents of the active configuration file.
■   Click Action > Save As to save the running configuration to a new file and make it active. Use the adjacent field to provide a name for the new configuration file.
■   Click Action > Upload to upload a binary configuration file. For details, refer to Upload a Configuration.
■   Click Action > Import to import a configuration file. For details, refer Import a Configuration.

Upload a Configuration

Use the Upload Configuration options to send configuration files from the local system to the GigaVUE node. To upload a configuration file, do the following:

The file is saved on the GigaVUE node with its original name. This is handy when you've saved some standard configuration files to your system using the Save command in the Configuration Files section above.
