Saves a complete configuration that can be used to set up a device from scratch. This mode is used to save a configuration that can be used in a configsync process. The filename specified when used with this mode should NOT have any path information, since the file will be restricted to a specific directory used in configsync. If the specified file does not end with the “.ucs” suffix, a “.ucs” will be automatically appended to the file.
Saves only the high-level configuration (virtual servers, pools, members, monitors…). The filename specified when used with this mode will be ignored, since configuration will be saved to /config/bigip.conf by default.
Saves only the base configuration (VLANs, self IPs…). The filename specified when used with this mode will be ignored, since configuration will be saved to /config/bigip_base.conf by default.
