When you save the controller’s configuration, the controller stores it in XML format in flash memory. Controller software
release 5.2 or later releases enable you to easily read and modify the configuration file by converting it to CLI format.
When you upload the configuration file to a TFTP/FTP/SFTP server, the controller initiates the conversion from XML to CLI. You can then read or edit the configuration file in a CLI
format on the server. When you are finished, you download the file back to the controller, where it is reconverted to an XML
format and saved.
