comment not taken over in IOS-XR configuration

Hi,

I want to put comment in my configurations which I make in a textfile, but I don't want this comment to be taken over in the IOS-XR configuration.

I am used to use the "!" character, but this  character puts the configuration in the IOS-XR router, which I don't want.

normal behavior of comment in IOS-XR:

Is there a special character that I can include at the start of a line in a textfile, which is not taken over in the router configuration?

Hello Edo,

Usually i use '#' on my txt config for comment, and it will fail as invalid syntax whenever i paste it to the router, but the router will accept other valid config. Below is example:

Textfile configuration:

# INTERFACE CONFIGURATION

interface loopback1923

description test

ipv4 address 10.2.1.33 255.255.255.252

!

# OSPF CONFIGURATION

router ospf 1

area 0

  interface loopback1923

  !

!

!

Apply it to the router:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9006-H(config)#

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9006-H(config)#

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9006-H(config)## INTERFACE CONFIGURATION

                                 ^

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9006-H(config)#interface loopback1923

Hi Rivalino,

I had exactly the same solution in mind. Apparently there seems to be no special character that can be used without giving the error: "% Invalid input detected at '^' marker."

thanks for the reply!
