Add comments to a configuration. You can add comments only at the current hierarchy level.

Any comments you add appear only when you view the configuration by entering the show command in configuration mode or the show configuration command in operational mode.


The software supports annotation up to the last level in the configuration hierarchy, including oneliners. However, annotation of parts (child statements or identifiers within a oneliner) of the oneliner is not supported. For example, in the following sample configuration hierarchy, annotation is supported up to the oneliner level 1 , but not supported for the metric child statement and its attribute 10:



Statement to which you are attaching the comment.


Text of the comment. You must enclose it in quotation marks. In the comment string, you can include the comment delimiters /* */ or #. If you do not specify any, the comment string is enclosed with the /* */ comment delimiters. If a comment for the specified statement already exists, it is deleted and replaced with the new comment.
