    Switching Between Operational Mode and Configuration Mode

    When you monitor and configure the SRC software, you may need to switch between operational mode and configuration mode. Topics that describe switching modes include:

    Switching to Configuration Mode

    To enter configuration mode:

    • Type the configure command or the edit command from the CLI operation mode. For example:
      user@host> configure Entering configuration mode.[edit]user@host#

      The CLI prompt changes from user@host> to user@host# and a banner appears to indicate the hierarchy level.

    Returning to Operational Mode

    You can return to operational mode with or without committing configuration changes. You can enter or exit configuration mode as many times as you wish without committing your changes.

    To commit the configuration and exit:

    [edit]user@host# commit and-quit commit completeExiting configuration modeuser@host>

    To exit without committing:

    [edit]user@host# exit Exiting configuration modeuser@host>

    If there are changes that have not been committed, the CLI returns a message to that effect:

    [edit]user@host# exit Exiting configuration mode.The configuration has been changed but not committed.

    To return to operational mode from any configuration hierarchy level, such as [edit system services]:

    [edit system services]user@host# exit configuration-mode user@host>

    Running Operational Mode Commands from Configuration Mode

    To display the output of an operational mode command, such as show, while in configuration mode:

    • Issue the run configuration mode command, then specify the operational mode command.
      [edit]user@host# run operational-mode-command

      For example, to display the SAE configuration and then check whether the SAE is running:

      [edit shared sae configuration]
      user@host# show 
      plug-ins { 
        pool rksPlugin {
          pcmm-rks { 
            load-balancing-mode failover;
            failback-timer -1;
            retry-interval 3000;
            maximum-queue-length 10000;
            default-peer radius01;
            peer-group rksPeer {
              server-port 1812;
      driver { 
      . . .
      [edit shared sae configuration]
      user@host# run show component
