Cannot recover from failed boot config load
Open, Unbreak Now!Public


If boot commit fails, the standard procedure of debugging (configure; load; commit) doesn't work.

vyos@vyos# load
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/libexec/vyos/", line 62, in <module>
    config = LoadConfig()
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/vyos/", line 103, in __init__
    running_config_text = self._run([self._cli_shell_api, '--show-active-only', '--show-show-defaults', '--show-ignore-edit', 'showConfig'])
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/vyos/", line 148, in _run
    raise VyOSError()

The called code can return 3 - in that case in that case _run should return an empty string
