Importing and exporting configuration scripts allows you to modify in whole or in part
the configuration script used on your unit.
Configuration scripts are files containing textual commands that are sent over the network to a
Mediatrix unit. Upon receiving the file, the unit executes each command line in sequence. Script
commands can assign values to configuration variables, or execute configuration commands.
A configuration script can be used on any firmware version, regardless of the firmware version
it was exported from. It is possible to import a complete configuration script, a subset of the
configuration script or even a few lines of a configuration script.
Importing a configuration script can be useful to:
- Change one or several script commands
- Add new commands
- Change parameter values
- Add parameters
- Replace the complete configuration script
Scripts are written by the system administrator and can be used to accomplish various tasks,
such as automating recurrent configuration tasks or batch-applying configuration settings to
multiple devices. Scripts can be executed once or periodically at a specified interval. They can
also be scheduled to be executed when the Mediatrix unit starts.
