The config file definitely has unix formatting, which is why I'm editing it with vi.

I don't want this to end up changing the SSIDs, WPA keys, device names, etc. So I strip out those elements, save, upload and I get.... Invalid configuration file structure.

And yes, I'm using the upload configuration button right below the download configuration button.

I'm bout to get my .308 out and shoot these things off the towers.

    Yeah that's exactly what I'm trying to do. Management and data
    VLANs. Management address from static to DHCP. I was thinking this
    would qualify as some pretty basic changes. Apparently not.

    We upgraded everything to 6.1.6. I set up an NSM5, downloaded the
    backup and stripped the device-specific stuff. Go import it and it
    says invalid. WTF. I don't know. I'll screw with it more tomorrow.

    For those with simple configs it's probably fine.

    If you have several interfaces and vlans per CPE with a few
    bridges, it's more of a pain (from experience).

        All the config file does is populate the listed fields.
        Anything not listed it doesnt change. Thats why you have to
        apply it but you can edit it still after loading it. Id pull
        a fresh config file from one of the units and edit it,
        removing anything you dont want changed. It could just be a
        change in a field name

            I'm not sure how you would use a partial config... I
            think that it would just use defaults for anything that
            was missing.

                A partial config? Never tried it. Dunno what some
                defaults are, and there are things hidden in the
                config file that aren't in the webui.

                Config also seems to change things from time to time.

                Also config order is sometimes important depending on
                what you are doing.

                (This is just what I remember from 5.2.1-5.8.x days)
