is there any possibillity to cinfigure an cli alias on ACE ?


I am wondering that a "show alias" is possible:

ACE/Admin# show alias
CLI alias commands
==================
ACE/Admin#


but the "normal" alias configuration doesn´t work, eg:

ACE/Admin(config)# cli alias name shint show interface
                              ^
% invalid command detected at '^' marker.


I use the following SW:

Cisco Application Control Software (ACSW)
  loader:    Version 12.2[120]
  system:    Version A2(1.4a) [build 3.0(0)A2(1.4a) adbuild_12:09:43-2009/04/08_/auto/adbu-rel2/rel_a2_1_4_throttle/REL_3_0_0_A2_1_4A]


thx

Hi,


I don't think that ACE supports alias commands.


Indeed, the show alias command works, but is a hidden commandP:


ACE/Admin# show  a
aaa          access-list  accounting   acl-merge    arp
ACE/Admin# show  alias
CLI alias commands
==================
ACE/Admin#


also in config mode, no command to configure aliases.


Looking in the command reference guide, no alias commands either.


So I don't think you can create alias commands (maybe in the future?)


I'm running A2(2.2)


HTH,

Dario

Hi,


Though ACE software works on Linux kernel 2.4, it does not have all the linux functionality.There is no Alias command. Even if i login to the kernel mode, you will not have a alias command.


Thanks

I know that "show alias" is a hidden command, so I thought there are also hodden config commands

The CLI code is shared between different devices.

The 'show alias' is something we forgot to remove.


switch/Admin# show a?
aaa          access-list  accounting   acl-merge    arp
switch/Admin# show a


However, as can be seen above, this is normally a hidden command.

There is no option to create alias on ACE


Thanks,


Gilles.

so it´s possible to misuse the script functionality to define some "alias" ?

... or can I start the "script procedure" only in configured probes ?

there is no alias on ACE.  The command 'show alias' will be removed. (it is currently just hidden).

Script can only be called from probes.
