Inserting a node text configuration into NA


I have a customer that would like to add in HPNA old nodes configurations that he has in text format.

Is there a way to insert a text configuration into NA for a node ? Even if NA hasn't discovered this configuration itself ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

As far as I know, there is no "official" way to add OLD config since the config of the nodes are stored in the DB. (with incremental IDs manage by a table in the db)

but, there is a NOT official way of inserting config via de DB...but not supported by HPE support and can cause some issue with the logical relation of tables. You may want to take a look at RN_DEVICE_DATA table (table that store historical of snapshots [config of devices])

Or you can try to read a little more regarding "Deploy device configuration" feature, you can deploy the config to a node using NA GUI.

There are two ways to deploy a configuration:

- To the running configuration — The configuration file remains in use until the device is rebooted.
Rebooting the device might cause the startup configuration to overwrite the running configuration.

- To the startup configuration — The device is rebooted and the new configuration becomes both the
running and startup configuration
