The "Preferences.cfg" file can become corrupted when a non-graceful shutdown occurs, like loss of power to the device. 


Restore the last known good configuration on the Reporter through the CLI.

  1. View the list of archived configuration files that are listed by date (year/month/day/hour/seconds).
    • Reporter# restore-settings automatic list
    • 20170629123052
    • 20170629133052
    • 20170629143052
    • 20170629153052
  2. Stop Reporter before applying the desired configuration file. 
    • Reporter# stop-reporter
  3. Apply the desired archive configuration file.
    • Reporter# restore-settings automatic 20170703123052
    • Are you sure you want to replace your current settings with those from set 20170703123052? [y/N]
  4. Restart Reporter.
    • Reporter# start-reporter


To list any manual backup made on the device, run "restore-settings manual list"  then "restore-settings manual <file>"
