Keeping a Record of Configuration Changes

Problem

When you activate a configuration, you want to include a short message that describes the changes you made.

Solution

Include a comment when you activate the configuration:

	aviva@router1# commit comment "turned on telnet"

 

Discussion

It's good practice to include a short description of the changes you made to each version of a configuration file so you can keep a history of configuration changes. You do this by using the comment option with the commit command.

To track down what changed in the configuration and when, you can review the comments:

	aviva@router1> show system commit
	0 2005-03-31 20:26:16 UTC by aviva via cli
	 turned on telnet
	1 2005-03-31 11:12:28 UTC by aviva via cli
	 set host gildor facility-override local4
