I need to make some changes to my switch stack, so I backed up my config and compared it to the running config to double check. The two are wildly out of sync. Going to the config history in J-web I notice that the last time the config history was updated was in 2015. These are active switches with changes being committed often, I even made and committed changes today, but the history is not being updated.

enter image description here

I guess my question is, how do I get this to start saving history again without risking anything? I can't seem to find the actual, up to date running config to save as a backup. I would like to update to the latest firmware, I'm running 12.3R3 whereas the current version is 12.3R12, but I'm not willing to do so unless I can have a backup of the actual current running config.

Thanks in advance

    Are you committing with commit synchronized? – Andrey Prokhorov Aug 11 '17 at 6:27

The configuration list in the WebUI should be pulled from the rollback list on the Virtual-Chassis master RE member.

Is the time correctly set on the box (eg: are you using NTP?)

Is the device you are logged into on the WebUI definitely the VC Master?


Log into the RE and ensure that system commit synchronize; is part of the config. If not add and commit. This will ensure that all vc members have the same config pushed. Are rollbacks working as intended?
