configure ports tdm display-string

configure ports port_list tdm display-string string


Configures a user-defined stsring on the specified TDM ports.

Syntax Description


Specifies a port or group of ports.


Character string to be associated with the ports.


The null string is the default.

Usage Guidelines

This command can be used to associate a user-defined string to one or more TDM ports.

The display string can be up to 15 characters. Display strings do not need to be unique for each port—you can assign the same string to multiple ports. For example, you could give all the ports that connected to a particular department a common display string.

The string is displayed in certain commands such as the show ports information command.



Do not use a port number as a display string. For example, do not assign the display string “2” to port2.
