Configures the name of the switch.
|sysName||An alphanumeric string that specifies a device name.|
The default sysName is the model name of the device (for example, ExtremeSwitching X440-G2).
You can use this command to change the name of the switch. A maximum of 255 characters is allowed. The allowed character set is A-Z, a-z, 0-9, +-@_.,:;()/ ”.
The sysName appears in the switch prompt. On a SummitStack, the sysName appears in the prompt of all active nodes in the stack when there is a master node present in the stack.
The following example names the switch:
configure snmp sysname engineeringlab
The following output from the show switch command displays engineeringlab as the name of the switch:
SysName: engineeringlab SysLocation: englab SysContact: FredJ
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
Beginning in ExtremeXOS 15.7, the maximum number of characters has been changed to 255.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
