I had generated a routerOS backup using:
/system backup save name=router01 password=xxxxx encryption=aes-sha256
I made a bunch of changes testing another issue and decided to reset using:
When the device rebooted I connected via Ethernet scp'd the backup file to the device and ssh'd in. I then attempted to run the following:
[admin@MikroTik] > /system/backup/load name=router01.backup password=xxxxx Restore and reboot? [y/N]: Y Restoring system configuration System configuration restored, rebooting now [admin@MikroTik] > Received disconnect from 192.168.88.1 port 22:11: shutdown/reboot Disconnected from 192.168.88.1 port 22 ~ 1m 51s ❯
After the reboot I expected to have my router back, instead, the wifi LED was not lit and there was no DHCP server, no interface IP, I couldn't connect to the router. To get the router back I now have to use a previous plain text routerOS 'export' and then copy and paste all the commands back in.
I have tried this twice and both times resulted in the same outcome.
