CSS "prompt" question

I recently configured a few CSS 11000 series switches using my own TACACS username. I set the "prompt" to display the name of the switch, however, it is only visible to my account. If someone else logs into it, it just says CSS11050. Is this a profile thing, how do I get it so that the prompt is displayed for all accounts that log into it? Thanks in advance

Re: CSS "prompt" question

From the CSS FAQ at :

Q. How do I make a permanent prompt change on the CSS?

A. Log in to the CSS box as user fred, and use your login credentials. In order to make a permanent prompt change, issue this command:

Css100#prompt Redsox

Redsox#Issue this command to save the change:


This command saves the user profile so that each time the user logs in, the CSS uses the same prompt. This action, similar to use of the ?.? resource files in UNIX, creates a unique profile for each user.

When you go back to the CSS and log in as admin, the prompt does not reflect these changes. The changes are user-specific, so you need to issue the prompt and save_profile commands for each user who wants to have the prompt reflect the new change.
