IOS XR asr9k edit files

Hi guys

I don't know if is possible in asr9k to create and edit new files. Because I want  copy a lot of commands from excel (cli) to new file and then in the VM only put a config)#load disk0:/migration.txt.

Thanks in advance.

Hello jhontoc24,

Yes you can, when you issue the command run from the CLI you get into the ksh mode, there you can use Linux commands and Linux text editors such as nano, vim, and emacs, if you are familiar with these applications.

Check this link out for more information on where to find your configuration files.

Hi

As a follow up on Ahmed correct answer. With an example and a warning. When in ksh mode. Dont "touch" anything that you don't know what it is. This can cause serious errors on the box

 RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:asr9k#run
Wed Dec 21 07:45:35.556 CET
# vim /disk0:/test123config.txt

edit file as you want. I have added an interface in this example.

# cat /disk0:/test123config.txt
 interface gi1000/0/0/2.222 l2transport
 description To test
 encapsulation dot1q 222
 rewrite ingress tag pop 1 symmetric
!
# exit
