In another article here, from 2014 (precambrian issues) - they broke down some of the insides of the device state config backup.
One of the commands listed said that I should issue the "save device state" command from the config cli - only - it's no longer there.
My script worked brilliantly for pulling the configs down on my Mac - just want to make sure I'm getting valid configs and don't have to do something else to get these accurately.
Looking around, I found this article which seems to suggest the command was just changed a bit. Looks like on firewalls (I just checked 8.1), it's "save device-state", but the article has more details if you're pulling it from Panorama.
