CISCO IOS : command not explicitly entered

Hi Cisco Expert,

If a command is not explicitly entered, will this mean it is not applied.

For example, if the command "no service finger" not entered, this means finger service is not enabled?

Regards,

Jhun

Hi Jhun, Yes - no service

Hi Jhun,

 

Yes - no service finger = finger service is disabled.

 

In general IOS will not accept an ambigious command, and so as long as the command is accepted, the IOS believes it is unambiguous and accepts the command. It may still be a good idea to 'tab' out the commands to ensure the intended command is entered.

Thanks Mike for the response

Thanks Mike for the response.

But if the command is not present in the config, will that mean that it is not enabled?

e.g if "no service finger" is not in the config file, the finger service is not enabled.
