Config is not portable between routers (7000 to 8000).. Best to copy / paste  config into a doc, or, do screen grabs of the info you need / want from the 7000.

Hi @ZULU747,

 

Welcome to Community!

 

@netwrks is correct. The config file of R7000 is for R7000 only and cannot be loaded on different models. The router will not accept it as it will be detected that it is for a different model.

 

Regards,
