_config_CLI MK4 cmd

The config command is used to manage configurations on Makito X Series devices. This includes saving the current configuration, loading a saved configuration, and specifying the configuration file to load at startup. The config command also includes a Preset autosave setting.  


This is equivalent to saving and loading Presets in the Web interface. 


config save [cfgname] [startup=yes,no] [overwrite=yes]
config load [cfgname]
config delete [cfgname, all]
config set [autosave=on,off]
config list




Saves the current configuration. Saves every parameter in the system, including encoder settings and stream destination and status (excluding the system IP address). All configuration files are stored in /usr/share/haivision/config. See the note below in cfgname description.

Using config save with no other parameters stores the current settings as the startup configuration using a default name of haistartup.cfg.

When saving a named configuration, using the overwrite option prevents a prompt for confirmation when a configuration with the same name already exists.


Loads a previously saved configuration identified by <cfgname>. Reassigns every parameter in the system, including encoder settings and stream destination and status (excluding the system IP address).


Deletes a previously saved configuration identified by <cfgname>. If no filename is specified, the system deletes the default configuration (haistartupcfg.ini).


Configures the autosave setting.


Displays a list of the available configuration files.


Displays usage information for the config command.





Name of the configuration to load or save.


The following special characters are not supported for use in the configuration name (cfgname) unless they are escaped using the backward slash (\) character before being used:

  • Single Quote `
  • Ampersand &
  • Parentheses ( or )
  • Semicolon ;
  • Apostrophe ’
  • Double Quote ”
  • Left and Right Angle Brackets < or >
overwritenoWhen saving a named configuration, the overwrite option can be used to prevent a prompt for confirmation when a configuration with the same name already exists. yes,no



Sets saved configuration as the startup configuration. yes,no


When enabled, autosave automatically saves any applied changes to the encoder and stream settings in the startup configuration. This feature is designed to help users who have not saved their configurations into Presets and want to prevent loss of configuration settings when signing out or rebooting, or when the power is disconnected on their units. A warning indication already appears in the Web Interface title bar on systems with unsaved configuration changes.

Preset autosave is enabled by default on new units and after a factory reset, but disabled when upgrading from an older version of firmware that did not support this feature (in order to avoid confusing users accustomed to the old preset workflow). The current state is displayed at the end of the config list output.


# config save Class430 startup=yes

Saves the current configuration under the name "Class430" and sets it to be the startup configuration.

# config load Class430

Loads a previously saved configuration identified by the name "Class430" (located in the active (local) directory).

# config set autosave=on

Enables auto-save and returns the following confirmation message.

Auto-save of configuration changes enabled successfully.

# config list

Returns the available configuration files, as well as the auto-save state.

Config Files (in /usr/share/haivision/config/):
  4xSRT_MX4E_2xHUB.cfg (startup)

5 config files are available.
