Re: Chateau Config Backup & Restore

Apologies still not understanding. Why does the export/import work on ROS6 but not in ROS7. I appreciate the suggestions but why is this necessary when it wasn’t before. For example I had a hardware failure on the modem of an LHG LTE6 running ROS6. I exported the config as I was still able to access...

Re: Chateau Config Backup & Restore

Yes I did from a clean config. I'm trying to export a config from one unit and import to another - surely that's the point of restore, especially for installers who need to replicate configs across multiple units. I've never had this problem with all other LTE products which are running ROS6. I can ...

Re: Chateau Config Backup & Restore

I had a delay set of 15s. I’ll try it with 20s.
When I restored from the rsc file I had the following:

No IP address on the Chateau
No DHCP server

It must have had a corruption of some sort. I’ll try it again with the suggested delay.
