Just was hoping to be able to do it from a script file. Not real sure how one could change the prompt on a couple hundred switches to the same as the sysname on the switch using RME though. Is there some kind of scripting allowed under RME?
The issue that I am having is that there is no command that I know of that will change the prompt on a CAT switch to whatever the system name is. Each switch has a unique System name (ie houston-cat55) You can't just use the "set prompt' command in netconfig since every switch would be different UNLESS there is a macro that would be able to read the system name like:
set prompt $SYSNAME
bu tI cannot fine any list of such words in the help file
If you can write a script to generate config-files for each switch (you can also do this using the "mail merge" feature in MS Word, reading device-specific info from an excel spreadsheet), you can put all the configs on a tftp server, then use SNMP to copy from the tftp server to each device as described in this link:
