Starting the SRC CLI

When you log in to the CLI, the privileges for your user account determine which commands and configuration statements you can access. A login account with superuser privileges gives a user access to all commands and statements.

To log in to a C Series Controller and start the CLI:

  1. Log in to a C Series Controller through an account that has super-user privileges.

    Note: If you enter an incorrect password, you are prompted to enter an LDAP password.

    For example, to log in to a C Series Controller through an SSH session:

    # ssh my_admin@my_cseries_platform
  2. Start the CLI:
    root# cli
    --- SRC CLI 7.0 build CLI.B.7.0.0.006
    (c) 2005-2006 Juniper Networks Inc.
    user@host>

    The > command prompt shows you are in operational mode. Later, when you enter configuration mode, the prompt will change to #.
