Hi Robert,

So first , we try to get to know the system configuration.
Then for the configuration leaves (based on description), check whether system 
configuration trumps the intended configuration ? If yes, retain system 
configuration, Else apply intended configuration.
If for some leaf, there is no <intended> configuration , then apply system 
configuration .

Is my understanding correct ?

With Regards,

Hi Rohit,

Section 5.3.2 states that you allowed to have configuration in 
<running>/<intended> for resources that could be present on the device but are 
not currently present.  The canonical example would be interface configuration 
for an interface on a linecard that isn't operational (either because it isn't 
present, or hasn't completely initialized).

Section 5.3.3 is saying that if the linecard becomes operational, then it may 
instantiate system controlled entries (in <operational>) for those interfaces.  
It also states that if there also happens to be configuration in 
<running>/<intended> for those interfaces then that configuration will also get 
applied as those interfaces as instantiated in <operational>.  All of the 
configuration that has been successfully applied would also appear in

Hi All,

RFC 8342 has below statement in Section 5.3.3
"If a system-controlled resource has
   matching configuration in <intended> when it appears, the system will
   try to apply the configuration; this causes the configuration to
   appear in <operational> eventually (if application of the
   configuration was successful).
Why does application of configuration for system-controlled resources depend on 
whether <intended> has configurations for that resource ? The configuration 
will still get applied as part of "system" configuration as shown in examples 
in Section C.1 in the same RFC given below

"In addition to filling in the default value for the auto-negotiation
   enabled leaf, a loopback interface entry is also automatically
instantiated by the system.  All of this is reflected in
