Page: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/backup/restore.html

Feedback:
On the "Restore area" section of the page, include a note/warning specifying the following:

When restoring a specific area, additional restore steps may not be executed that would otherwise be ran when restoring a full configuration backup.

History

#1 Updated by Marcos Mendoza 4 months ago

This is the case when restoring an OpenVPN configuration. I'm unsure what other areas it may apply to.

#3 Updated by Marcos Mendoza 3 months ago

My intent was to hint towards the potential issue of restoring a specific area (e.g. openvpn) and not having upgrade steps take place on that area that would otherwise be executed through a full restore or release upgrade. For example, when restoring only the OpenVPN config area from 2.4.5p1 to 2.5, the resulting config is slightly different than if upgrading pfSense.

OK, the description did not mention upgrade code at all, or hint at it. I can add that as well.

Additional warning now in place, will show up shortly when it rebuilds.
