VTL - Console Prompt Modification


A ways back I found a way to modify the console prompt within the CLI of the NetApp VLT (5.6 or 6.0.1).

--For the life of me I cannot remember or find that command, but know it exists.

Please help!

Hi Mark,

The command to change the CLI prompt is:

display set_prompt <use_hostname|use_default>

So you can change the prompt to be the hostname (set in the Miscellaneous -> Network Setup menu) or the default "VTL>" prompt.  You can also look at the CLI command reference found on the NOW site for more information:

This was introduced in v5.6.2 and is also available in v6.0.3
