Prompt does not show the # sign when in Privileged exec mode?

Ok I'm new to this game so forgive my ignorance on this. I have a 4700-m router that does not display the # sign when I log into privileged exec mode. Everything seems to work fine, but it doesn't look right. All help is appreciated

Thanks

Re: Prompt does not show the # sign when in Privileged exec mode

Hello,

I am also new to this game.

Maby this help, there is a command that can give a differend name to privileged mode. If you go to the conf t mode (config) there is a command "prompt testname" , the result than is :

BACKBONE#

BACKBONE#conf t

BACKBONE(config)#prompt testname

BACKBONE(config)#exit

testname

testname

To turn this of just use "no prompt testname"

Some where in your global config there sould be a line "prompt testname" if not then i don't know how to help. Good luck.

Customizing the Router Prompt

By default, the prompt consists of the router name followed by an angle bracket (>) for EXEC mode or a pound sign (#) for privileged EXEC mode. To customize your prompt, use either of the following commands in global configuration mode:

Command Purpose

prompt string Customizes the prompt.

e.g. Router1 (conf)# prompt ?

Router1 (conf)?

Router1 (conf)# prompt #

Router1 (conf)#

no service prompt config

Removes the configuration prompt (config).
