Severity: 3-Major


After upgrade from 10.2.4 to 12.1.2, full config load fails.


After upgrade, if changes are made to the running config (in memory; not on disk), then the config files on disk from upgrade cannot be restored.


The pre-upgrade version must be 10.2.4 and the pre-upgrade config must have user-defined partitions.


10.2.4 config on upgrade is stored at /config/bigpipe/. So, a workaround is to load defaults, then merge the original config using bigpipe. /usr/libexec/bigpipe merge /config/bigpipe/*.conf

Fix Information

Full load after upgrade from 10.2.4 now succeeds.
