Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System


Navigating the CLI

The Dell EMC Networking OS displays a CLI prompt comprised of the host name and CLI mode.

  • Host name is the initial part of the prompt and is “Dell” by default. You can change the host name with the hostname command.
  • CLI mode is the second part of the prompt and reflects the current CLI mode. For a list of the Dell EMC Networking OS command modes, see the command mode list in Accessing the Command Line.

The CLI prompt changes as you move up and down the levels of the command structure. Starting with CONFIGURATION mode, the command prompt adds modifiers to further identify the mode. For more information about command modes, see Command Modes.
