Hello All,


I come to now a new command that "whatsnew" which helps to know what recent changes made on device. i tried on our one of device but did find the command in help. than i tried to find this in Command Lookup Tool but i did not find such command. My college how told me about this used many time in his previous Orangization. I also check on google and found folowing URL which shows such a command exists.

Can any one guide me where i can find more information about this?

Hello,


There is no such command as "whatsnew". If you notice, in the document, they

created an alias for a different command and named it as "whatsnew"


"so I decided to make an alias for it with the alias exec whatsnew show

archive config differences nvram:startup-config system:running-config

configuration command."


I am assuming even your colleague might have set it up similarly. To see

what has changed, you need to use " show archive config differences

nvram:startup-config system:running-config" command.


Hope this helps.
