You can restore storage system configuration information from a backup configuration file.
Illegal entries in the configuration file might cause attempts to fail and error messages to occur when using config restore -v to restore volume-specific configurations. If this happens, edit the configuration file in the default /etc/configs directory to remove the illegal entries.
For instance, an error message indicating an invalid operation on FlexVol volume vol_name could result from a configuration file containing the text options.vols.vol_name.raidsize, where vol_name is not a traditional volume and thus an illegal entry that should be removed from the configuration file.
-v enables you to restore volume-specific configuration files, as well as storage system-specific configuration files.
The quotas state for volumes owned by a non-default vFiler is not restored when you restore a system configuration.
