Overview of Configuration Management Commands

The articles on this page describe the CLI commands that you use to manage a configuration on vSmart controllers, vEdge routers, and vBond orchestrators. You know that you are in configuration mode because the CLI prompt changes to include the string (config).

In the CLI, the configuration management commands are grouped together after the functional configuration commands, and they are organized alphabetically. Some of commands are organized into functional hierarchies. The top-level configuration management commands and command hierarchies are:

  • abort—End the configuration session.
  • clear—Remove all changes to the configuration.
  • commit—Activate the configuration.
  • describe—Display help about the configuration commands.
  • do—Run an operational command without exiting from configuration mode.
  • end—End the configuration session.
  • exit—Exit from the current configuration level.
  • help—Display help information about CLI commands.
  • load—Load the configuration from an ASCII text file.
  • no—Negate a command.
  • pwd—Display the current configuration level.
  • revert—Return to the running configuration.
  • rollback—Return to a previously committed version of the configuration.
  • save—Save the configuration to an ASCII text file.
  • show—Display a configuration parameter.
  • top—Return to the top level in the configuration.
  • validate—Validate the configuration.

The configuration commands themselves are described under Configuration Commands.

​​The articles in this section describe each of the operational commands. The articles are arranged alphabetically, by command name.
