All Previous Configuration gone.

I am in great trouble. I am using F5 (big-IP) trail and configured it. It was running smoothly. With some power interrupt the big-IP got restart and it got back to it's default mode e.g. non of my configuration was there. In the mean time i purchased the F5 and i want my all configuration which i done in the trial F5.

Is there anyway to get back that configuration which in done in trial mode?

Need urgent help.

you cannot restore it without having any older UCS or configuration files of the system. its a good practice to take the UCS backup after your last change, you can restore in worst situations.

if you're lucky, you may find your old configuration in /config/bigip.conf.bak

No, you'll need to ssh to the device and used the file location above. You can can use the following command to view the file to see if your config is there

more /config/bigip.conf.bak

@Lee, I don't think old configuration will be there as system has rebooted with default configuration. Another options I may try to find if devices has rebooted with different HD partitions.

I don't find any of the recent file. under /config/ path. Most of the file are very old. I like to add here the operator make a backup (which didn't downloaded) in also blank. No backup file is there.

Can you tell me @Samir Jha how how to check which part partition things.

I think you all already realized that how dumb i am in term of F5.

Run this command to check partitions tmsh show /sys software status.

Or GUI-->System > Software Management see all the partitions

Hi Rockers,

it's normal for you to lose the configuration after a reboot. you're sure you did not switch to another partition.

Using CLI can you enter this command and provide me output:

switchboot -l

Thank you regards,
