Command context

Manager (#)




The system by default generates checkpoints for any configuration change with a timeout of 300 seconds. Once a configuration change is detected, the system starts a timer that creates a checkpoint upon expiration. The timer is reset with each consecutive configuration change.

This system generated checkpoint is listed as CPC with a time stamp in the list of checkpoints, for example: CPC20170630073127. The time stamp in the checkpoint name is interpreted as <YYYYMMDDHHMMSS>.

These checkpoints can be applied using the checkpoint rollback feature or copy command during connectivity loss or a power failure.

A maximum of 32 system checkpoints can be stored in the database. Beyond this limit, the newest system checkpoint replaces the oldest system checkpoint. The limit of system checkpoints does not contend with limit of user checkpoints.


Enabling system checkpoints:

switch(config)# checkpoint post-configuration

Disabling system checkpoints:

switch(config)# no checkpoint post-configuration
