    Commands to Modify a Configuration

    To modify the hierarchy, use the following configuration mode commands:

    • edit—Moves to a particular hierarchy level. If that hierarchy level does not exist, the edit command creates it. The edit command has the following syntax:
      edit < statement-path >

      where statement-path is the hierarchy to the configuration statement and the statement itself.

    • set—Creates a configuration statement and sets identifier values. After you issue a set command, you remain at the same level in the hierarchy. The set command has the following syntax:
      set < statement-path > statement < identifier >

      where

      statement-path is the hierarchy to the configuration statement and the statement itself. If you have already moved to the statement’s hierarchy level, you can omit the statement path.

      statement is the configuration statement itself.

      identifier is a string that identifies an instance of a statement.

      You can also set more than one option for a configuration statement. For example:

      user@host# set transaction-variable realm operator equals value aol

      where transaction-variable, operator, and value are options.

      You cannot use the edit command to change the value of identifiers. You must use the set command.
