[solved]vdx 6720 port replicating

[ Edited ]

I have a vdx 6720.

 

I am unfamiliar with it.

 

I am familiar with cisco switches and ussually I can replicate a ports configuration in cisco with "show run" (from enabled) and then copy the settings to a notepad and copy them to the other port from config.

 

How would I do that in the vdx 6720?

 

I can login to the switch as root - fibreanne

 

when I try "show run" I get

 

sw0:root> show run
sh: show: command not found

 

when I try "en" I get

 

sw0:root> en
sh: en: command not found

 

This is not Cisco

 

I am just OK with Cisco. I am a Linux guru.

 

Do I need to install a VM with old versions of java to access my switch to set it up?

Re: vdx 6720 port replicating

Ah ha this thing is running linux. :-)

 

I figured out how to change the password of admin and see admin runs a different shell that is more like cisco's

 

show run as admin seems to show the configuration but understanding the numbers on the ports looks a bit confusing.

 

I want to associate a physical port now with its name.

And it was just like the Cisco for replicating that port. That was all I needed.
