Manage Configuration Backups
The running configuration comprises all settings you have committed and that are therefore active, such as policy rules that currently block or allow various types of traffic in your network. The candidate configuration is a copy of the running configuration plus any inactive changes that you made after the last commit. Backing up versions of the running or candidate configuration enables you to later restore those versions on the firewall. For example, if a commit validation shows that the current candidate configuration has more errors than you are able or have time to fix, then you can restore a previous candidate configuration or revert to the running configuration.
