What you're looking for is called an ifgrps. They actually can't cross controllers. So you could bundle e0a and e0b on the same controller together. During a failover the IPs that use that ifgrp would move to the partner and data would continue to be served out.
are you thinking like a cisco device were you have to run something like "copy run start" to make sure it boots OK the next time? - There's no need for this type of action on netapp.
...or taking a backup copy just incase the root volume / aggr get corrupted? for 7mode system, this would be a good place to start: https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1036245/~/how-to-backup-system-configuration-files-on-the-filer-
