Configuration mode

Use this command to roll back to the configuration revision specified.
Note: For the roll back to take effect, the system must be rebooted after the configuration is rolled back. A prompt will ask whether or not to reboot the system once the command completes.

You can see the list of configuration file revisions using the show system commit operational mode command (use run show system commit from configuration mode).

This example allows you to roll back existing configuration to the specified revision of the router configuration.
