Multiple Admins and what happens with a commit?

L1 Bithead


If I have multiple admins working on the same PA, when the second admin logs on do they see the first admins candidate config, or do they get a copy of the running config?  When a commit is done, does it commit only the changes the admin makes, or the changes from both admins?

I understand that the config lock would prevent the second admit from making changes, but I'm trying to understand the consequences for not using the config and commit locks.

Thank you

When working with 2 admins; second admin can see the config changes which is made by other.

when commit begins, others cannot commit but still can edit the config(after version 6.0)

If you have a commit lock set, then log in as another user and try to commit, the firewall should stop you to perform the commit.

--- If you apply the commit, it will commit for changes from both admins.

We will indeed commit both changes that each admin made.

Please utilize the commit and configuration locks as mentioned above.
