[FAQ] How Do I Delete Inactive Configurations from a Card or Switch That Is Not Installed?

If a card or switch is not installed, you can configure the card or switch in advance. The configuration is called offline configuration or inactive configuration.

To delete inactive configurations, perform the following operation:

# Delete the inactive configuration in slot 1.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] clear inactive-configuration slot 1
Warning: The inactive configuration of slot 1 will be deleted and can't be restored.

•Before running this command, ensure that the specified card or switch is not installed.
•This command deletes inactive configurations from the specified card or switch, so an error message will be displayed if a user commits other configurations that depend on the deleted configurations.
