I have a pair of SSG-520 devices in a HA pair. I wanted to make a change to the config on one device and not sync this information across to the standby appliance until testing was complete. To do this I ran the following command "unset nsrp config sync".
I now want to sync the devices and set the config sync back to what it was, however, I'm unclear on the best method.
From the manual if I use the following cmd "exec nsrp sync global-config save" on the backup appliance it will sync the config and then ask for a restart. I will then run the cmd "set nsrp config sync" on both appliances. Done.
However, my question is this: if I didn't run the cmd "exec nsrp sync global-config save" and just set the config sync back on the appliances, will the config sync itself without the need for a reboot?
Thanks in advance,

I don't think so. I beleive the recommended approach is to use "exec nsrp sync global-config save" and reset the box.

Think I'm going to go for a manual config change on the standby box - I've only added a couple of policies and VIPs so won't take me long, especially with Windiff showing me the light.
Also, I forgot that there were significant differences anyway with the two boxes and I didn't want to overwrite these things e.g. physical interface IP addresses, priority and preempt status. By posting I've given myself some thinking time to understand this, else I may have blindly synced last week....
