Basic System InformationΒΆ

The TNSR CLI can set several basic elements about the system itself, which also serves as a good introduction to making changes on TNSR. These settings are made in config mode.

The following parameters are available:

system contact <text>:

System contact information, such as an e-mail address or telephone number.

system description <text>:

A brief description of this TNSR instance, for example its role or other identifying information.

system location <text>:

The location of this TNSR instance, for example a physical location (building, room number, rack number and position, VM host)

system name <text>:

The hostname of this TNSR instance.


This setting also changes the hostname in the host operating system to match, replacing any previously configured hostname.

This example shows how to set the above parameters, starting from master mode:

gw tnsr# configure
gw tnsr(config)# system contact
gw tnsr(config)# system description TNSR Lab Router
gw tnsr(config)# system location HQ MDF/Rack 2 Top
gw tnsr(config)# system name labrtr01
labrtr01 tnsr(config)# exit

To view the values of these parameters, along with uptime and memory usage, use the show system command from either master or config mode:

labrtr01 tnsr# show system
