How to check from which node a configuration got inherited to a device in AOS 8? 


In AOS 8, a device node (controller), can get its configuration inherited from different levels of the node hierarchy. The configuration inherited from all different nodes of the node hierarchy, comprises the running configuration or the effective configuration of the device. 


A device may have multiple higher level nodes. The running configuration may not show from which node a specific configuration got inherited. For example, in the below output, the device "00:0b:86:be:79:b8" can get its configuration from different upper lever nodes like "/", "/md", "/md/INFINITY-Branch", or "/md/INFINITY-Branch/00:0b:86:be:79:b8"

To check which configurations got inherited from which nodes, we can use the command "#show configuration effective detail <node-path>". 
This command output shows the parent node for each configuration line on the right side.
