    Rahul Wagh..

      Hi All,


      i am trying to Import Configuration (Network --> Import/Export -> Configuration Import)

      when i run the Job where destination: import as Target configurations or as Templates it works successfully !! but when i check the output of that job it won't affect in my environment.


      like if Destination as Target configurations it wont affect in the device target configuration nor for the Templates as well (wont affect in Templete)


      please can any one suggest me on that.

          Which BBNA version you are using..?


          I just checked in my test environment.. and it works..  I am using BBNA 8.2.0



          Template extension would be .tmp , so in Match Filenames tab write *.tmp instead of *.cfg

              It should show u in template if you run the job as template.


              Let me givee you an idea,


              I pasted two backup files named test1.tmp and test2.tmp in D:\bca-networks-data\configs folder,



              Then i ran Configuration Import Task,



              source directory - D:/BCA-Networks-Data/configs

              match filenames -  *.tmp

              destination - Import as a template


              It worked for me... try the same at ur end, let me know if u need any help..

                After done with the config import, it will directly reflect in templates... test1 and test2 in my case...

                  Hi Rahul,


                  thank you for your quick reply .

                  source Directory path C:/BCA-Networks-Data/configs stores configurations files which are exported by BBNA app server with extension *.cfg .  isn't it ?

                  and like you said i have also tried your way of importing with *.tmp . runs successfully on both 8.1.02 And 8.2.00 !! but it wont create any templete in Templete for respective name where same for import as Target configuration!!

                  suggest !
