Use the cached configuration on Gateways to check the data received from the Orchestrator.

The configuration is cached in the following file: /opt/vc/bin/.gateway.info.

Use the script /opt/vc/bin/getpolicy.py to read the cached configuration and to verify the data received from the Orchestrator.

vcadmin@vcg1-example:~$ /opt/vc/bin/getpolicy.py managementPlane
{
 "schemaVersion": "1.7.0", 
 "version": "0", 
 "data": {
  "heartBeatSeconds": 30, 
  "managementPlaneProxy": {
   "primary": "vco1-example.velocloud.net", 
   "secondary": null
  }, 
  "timeSliceSeconds": 300, 
  "vcoAddress": "1.2.3.4", 
  "statsUploadSeconds": 300
 }, 
 "module": "managementPlane"
}
vcadmin@vcg1-example:~$ 

An exception to the above is Control Plane configuration. As the Control Plane module contains sensitive information such as pre-shared keys for the Non VMware SD-WAN Site tunnels, it is never cached locally. Hence, if the Gateway restarts while not connected to the Orchestrator, the components and processes that require a Control Plane blob like Non VMware SD-WAN Sites, VLAN/VRF handoff, and BGP routing do not work until the Orchestrator connectivity is restored.

As an exception, when the Gateway loses connection to SD-WAN Orchestrator and does not reboot all the Control Plane modules will function normally.
