Where are the archived configs stored in Airwave

I am trying to find where the controller configs are stored in Airwave? Not from the gui, I can get to those, but if I ssh into Airwave, where can I find the configs?

Re: Where are the archived configs stored in Airwave

I haven't used this feature much in my testing, but:

Look in /var/airwave/device-backup/ap/<ap_id>/

You should only see folders for ap_ids for controllers and switches, not APs

In these folders, there should be flashbackup files of type tar.gz

Side note: I'm only seeing flashbackups tarballs for Aruba controllers/switches on my lab setup


What type of devices are you trying to download archived configs for?

I'd be interested in knowing if the non-Aruba devices also create tarballs which I might try later on.
