Hey,


We got a problem with our Huawei S5700 after a power failure (no power in the building..) all configuration get lost, we need to configurat all ports again. This happens evry time we loose our power in the building, the power is down for 20 - 120 mins.


Is there anyway to get around this problem? (Except UPS)


Thanks.

you need to save the configuration after modifications
Example

Save the current configuration to the default directory when the next startup configuration file is not specified.

<HUAWEI> save
The current configuration will be written to the device.
Are you sure to continue?[Y/N]y
Now saving the current configuration to the slot 0..
Save the configuration successfully.

Save the current configuration to the next startup configuration file specified.

<HUAWEI> save
The current configuration will be written to flash:/vrpcfg.zip.
Are you sure to continue?[Y/N]y
Now saving the current configuration to the slot 0.
Info: Save the configuration successfully.
