I am using CLI to set my VLAN's and various other settings when setting up a switch for the first time - I paste the text below into PUTTY and one after the other, the commands are dealt with. However, when it gets to the 2nd to last line, interface range te1/1/1-2, it errors as an unrecognised command. However, if I type it in separately, it works, so I know it's not me!
From the output I'm getting, it 'looks' like I need to put a delay in, so that the previous command is dealt with, before it moves onto the next, as it seems to not be recognising that the next line is a new command and not a continuation of the previous.
This is the text I paste into PUTTY which autoscrolls through until it gets to the interface range te1/1/1-2 line, where it seems to go wrong.
config ip default-gateway 10.0.48.254 interface vlan 11 name VOIP interface vlan 10 name ubiquiti-management interface vlan 30 name campus-access interface vlan 103 name ec-printers interface vlan 104 name technician-vlan interface vlan 105 name ec-admin interface vlan 106 name ec-curriculum interface vlan 108 name apple-macs interface vlan 109 name vdi-clients interface vlan 110 name filtered-wifi interface vlan 120 name sa-preprep interface vlan 121 name sa-admin interface vlan 122 name sa-curriculum interface vlan 201 name switch-management interface vlan 202 name aerohive-management interface vlan 203 name cctv-management interface vlan 212 name wifi-ecguest interface vlan 500 interface range gi1/1/1-48 no macro auto smartport interface range te1/1/1-2 no macro auto smartport
I have come across this sometimes too. There is just a delay after running certain commands before the CLI will allow further input. You should be able to fix that in Putty or use a different console program. Hyperterminal has options to slow it down. You just need to tell your terminal program to slow down a bit after each CR and perhaps each character too. Some terminal programs will also allow you to write scripts to include pauses and that could be helpful in your case since you only need to slow down at certain points.
