Switch prompt example




Showing the available commands in this context

At the command prompt, enter the ? symbol.

Access to manager context commands from descendant contexts

The do command enables you to access commands from the manager context while you are in a child or descendent context, such as config or config-if.

For example, to execute the clear command from the config context, enter the following: do clear

The show command can be executed from configuration contexts as well as the manager context, so using the do command with the show command is deprecated. Support for do show might be discontinued in a future software release.
