Yeah... except it doesn't work, at least on 6.1.6. Pull out the stuff I
don't want to overwrite, upload the file and... SSID, WPA2 key, traffic
shaping, device name, etc. all gone. They just go to factory default
values. Except for what's in the config file, VLANs, bridges, etc. Not
very helpful. This is friggin stupid.

Ugh. This is what was tripping me up:

I don't want this to end up changing the SSIDs, WPA keys,

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

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.

ePMP has spoiled me. Am I stupid,
or will airOS 6.1.x not take a partial
config? I just want to change a
couple things on several hundred
And no, I'm not interested in
AirControl or UNMS.
