Get CLI config files of ZD ,like cisco's show run

I want to use a cli like cisco's 'show run' to get the cli configuration. And then enter this configuration to a new deivce by CLI.

I know the show config, but it is not a kind of CLI command. 't re-enter the output of "show conf" to restore a config.

The ZoneDirector stores it's config in a database that you can back up then selectively restore (e.g. Configuration only) via the WebUI. Is doing it at the command line a must?

Thanks for your reply. Yes, if it support backup cli configuration could be better.
You means ZD does not support this feature?

Neither ZoneDirector nor Standalone APs have a complete text configuration file backup/restore capability. You can script some CLI configuration of common settings or WLANs, but not a full backup/restore file.

You can save a configured ZoneDirector backup file, and install it on a new ZD,
leaving that ZD's IP address and login credentials, in order to "clone" another/new
ZD with an existing/working configuration, which is sometimes helpful. This is
done thru the ZoneDirector WebUI too though, not a CLI method.

If I understand correctly.
I can do these in ZoneDirector.
-backup config from gui
-let say I lost the password
just reset to factory default
-set new password
-restore config
my new password still intact (won't be overwrittern by restored config)

if correct
can I do the same thing with vSZ

NBCTCP, the vSZ allows you to do a Config Backup and a Cluster Backup.
A Config Backup can be applied to a new vSZ instance.
A Cluster Backup must be applied to an exactly matching (hw, cpu, mem) vSZ instance.

MY point is whether after restore, admin password in backup will overwrite target vSZ admin password or not.
If not that will be good if I want to copy similar config to different machine

Would be nice if there's a CLI command that we can enter to get ZD's complete configuration. This will be useful if we want to load configuration from one ZD model to a different model (for testing purposes, for example).

Hello M, ask your Ruckus account rep to add your vote to feature request FR-1489: Restore ZD backup via CLI.

Any idea if that cli has been made available. support has requested to share flashbackup to replicate some issue, however as per info-sec policies I can share the config file without changing some details of the file.
