13.2 VTY shell integrated configuration

Command: service integrated-vtysh-config

Write out integrated Quagga.conf file when ’write file’ is issued.

This command controls the behaviour of vtysh when it is told to write out the configuration. Per default, vtysh will instruct each daemon to write out their own config files when write file is issued. However, if service integrated-vtysh-config is set, when write file is issued, vtysh will instruct the daemons will write out a Quagga.conf with all daemons’ commands integrated into it.

Vtysh per default behaves as if write-conf daemon is set. Note that both may be set at same time if one wishes to have both Quagga.conf and daemon specific files written out. Further, note that the daemons are hard-coded to first look for the integrated Quagga.conf file before looking for their own file.

We recommend you do not mix the use of the two types of files. Further, it is better not to use the integrated Quagga.conf file, as any syntax error in it can lead to /all/ of your daemons being unable to start up. Per daemon files are more robust as impact of errors in configuration are limited to the daemon in whose file the error is made.
