I am attempting to use a backup file we have made from a Cambium ePMP 2000 AP. The file, when downloaded from Unimus, does not match the file when downloaded directly from the device. It is missing all of the json formatting and is not able to be uploaded into another ePMP device to restore. It is so different, I can't reliably build a working json file from the Unimus backup.

Am I missing a step or is the backup in Unimus not correct?

Hi,

The ePMP backup from Unimus is the output of "config show dump".
This is the sequence of "config set ..." commands that need to be run on the device to get the device from default config into the desired configured state.

We do not take the json as the backup, since the "config show dump" is much better suited to config change notifications, config search, etc.

So to restore to a device, you just need to have that device in default config, and paste in the "config set ..." commands you have from Unimus.

OK. Assuming this is a cli dump... Makes much more sense. Will give that a shot. Thanks!
