Using the CLI

This section describes how to use the CLI to issue commands.
  1. At the prompt, enter the command name.
    If the command does not include a parameter or values, skip to step 3. If the command requires more information, continue to step 2.
  2. If the command includes a parameter, enter the parameter name and values.
    The value part of the command specifies how you want the parameter to be set. Values include numerics, strings, or addresses, depending on the parameter.
  3. After entering the complete command, press [Enter].


    If an asterisk (*) appears in front of the command line prompt, it indicates that you have pending configuration changes that have not been saved. For more information on saving configuration changes, see Software Upgrade and Boot Options.
