show | display set



Display the configuration as a series of configuration mode commands required to re-create the configuration from the top level of the hierarchy as set commands.



Display explicitly, as a series of set commands, all the configuration statements that the system internally creates when you configure certain statements from the top level of the hierarchy.

For example, assume you issue the set interfaces ge-0/0/0.0 family inet configuration mode command. You then show the resulting configuration with the show interfaces ge-0/0/0 | display set command. The output displays the same set command you entered. If you include the explicit argument, the output also shows the configuration statements needed to create the hierarchy where the family inet statement is specified. Specifically for this example, the output therefore includes the set interfaces ge-0/0/0 unit 0 statement in addition to the set interfaces ge-0/0/0.0 family inet statement.
