Re: ACI Simulator retain config

It's just a simulator thing.

 

We have tested turning off the whole fabric before going live - none of the configuration policies were lost. And then even if that's the case, you can just reapply an exported configuration snapshot.

Re: ACI Simulator retain config

Hi @Heinz Kern 

The real APIC controllers will not loose the configuration if you reload them (individually, or all at the same time). If this ever happens, it will be a major bug.

 

Stay safe,

Re: ACI Simulator retain config

Hi 

I dont think you can make the config persistent. 

You could export/import config .. use Postman to send the config ..

Re: ACI Simulator retain config

thnaks for the Reply. for my curiosity, as we are just starting to implement ACI: does the apic in production behave the same way or is this just a "fetaure" of the Simulator?
