Enables the logging of CLI configuration commands to the Syslog for auditing purposes.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

ExtremeXOS allows you to record all configuration changes and their sources that are made using the CLI by way of Telnet or the local console. The changes are logged to the system log. Each log entry includes the user account name that performed the changes and the source IP address of the client (if Telnet was used). Configuration logging applies only to commands that result in a configuration change.

To view the status of configuration logging on the switch, use the show management command. This command displays information about the switch including the enable/disable state for configuration logging.


The following command enables the logging of CLI configuration commands to the Syslog:

enable cli config-logging


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.

The cli-config-logging keyword was split into cli config-logging in ExtremeXOS 30.3.

Platform Availability

This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
