Q:

What are the different commands to verify the pending configuration on an Aruba MM?



A:
When we enter a configuration into a managed device, the configuration is validated. The validated configuration is accepted by the system but does not take effect. When the configuration is committed, it takes effect and is stored in the persistent memory, allowing users to verify the configuration before making it operational.
 
Below is the example configuration that was done to verify the uncommitted configuration.
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z

(ArubaMM) [mynode] (config) #ap-group ArubaCampus
(ArubaMM) [mynode] (AP group "ArubaCampus") #virtual-ap default
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] (AP group "ArubaCampus") #vlan 40
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] (config-submode)#!
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] (config) #exit
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #

(ArubaMM) [mynode] #cd /md/BLR
(ArubaMM) [BLR] (config) #ap-group ArubaCampus
(ArubaMM) [BLR] (AP group "ArubaCampus") #virtual-ap default
(ArubaMM) ^[BLR] (AP group "ArubaCampus") #!
(ArubaMM) ^[BLR] (config) #exit
(ArubaMM) ^[BLR] #cd /mynode
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #

 

Below command output will tell us the exact configuration part that need to be committed.
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #show configuration pending

vlan 40
ap-group "ArubaCampus"
    virtual-ap "default"
!

(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #

 

Below command output will tell us the state of the pending configuration.
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #show configuration state pending

Node has pending config: yes
    Profile commands: 1
    Non-profile commands: 1
Child node has pending config: no
Parent node has pending config: no
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #

 

Below command output will show the exact node that has the pending configuration.
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #
(ArubaMM) ^[mynode] #show configuration unsaved-nodes

Below commands are executed after commintting the configuration.
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #show configuration pending
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #show configuration state pending

Node has pending config: no
Child node has pending config: no
Parent node has pending config: no

(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #show configuration unsaved-nodes
