request software upgrade-confirm

request software upgrade-confirm—Confirm that the upgrade to a new software image is successful. If the device configuration includes the system upgrade-confirm command, issuing the request software upgrade-confirm command within the time limit configured in the upgrade-confirm command confirms that the upgrade to the new software image has been successful. If this command is not issued, the device reverts automatically to the previously running software image.

If you have initiated the software upgrade from the vManage NMS, the vManage NMS automatically issues the request software upgrade-confirm command when the vEdge router finishes rebooting. If you have initiated the software upgrade manually from the vEdge router, you issue this command from the CLI.
