The following errors are observed when copying a config file and subsequently attempting to edit it:
sp_ctrl >copy config configfile1 to configfile2
sp_ctrl > edit configfile2
Unknown directive for edit command: configfile2
The command is used incorrectly.
The correct syntax for editing a config file (in reference to the above file names) is:
sp_ctrl > edit config configfile2
See Shareplex Reference Guide for more details on this command.
