Usage Information

Important Points to Remember:

  • To use special characters as a part of the description string, you must enclose the whole string in double quotes.
  • Spaces between characters are not preserved after entering this command unless you enclose the entire description in quotation marks (desc_text).
  • Entering a text string after the description command overwrites any previous text string that you previously configured as the description.
  • The shutdown and description commands are the only commands that you can configure on an interface that is a member of a port-channel.
  • Use the show interfaces description command to display descriptions configured for each interface.
