2.4.6. Save a Configuration Snapshot Using the Management CLI

Summary

Configuration snapshots are a point-in-time copy of the current server configuration. These copies can be saved and loaded by the administrator.

The following example uses the standalone.xml configuration file, but the same process applies to the domain.xml and host.xml configuration files.
