Thats it pretty much. Ive been in trouble with Vyos as BGP and every time problems happened, they were disk-related. So I had to format the disk, reinstall the Vyos using its image burned in a CD, and then manually imputing the “running config” (that we saved into a text file but cant import into the new installation just pasting it there).
Im trying to find something that gives me some cover in the case I have disk problems with it again. At first I was thinking about making a full image of its disk right after finishing configuring the whole BGP but thats not only a very slow procedure to do on a machine that needs to get back to work asap (~1000 clients depends on it), its also a solution that would end up with me having a backup that would eventually get outdated and I’d have to rewrite a lot of its configuration if someday I replace the original disk with the cloned one.
Any very obvious way to do backups of the Vyos that Im not aware of? Its hard to believe that the system cant have its whole configuration saved and loaded back into a new installation with a few commands. Every system out there have such options.
