  • 1.  get switchname as variable

    Posted 08-16-2021 09:04



                   I am looking for a quick way to do the following:

    ·        This is my switch..... root@mrct-nddn-02- >

    ·        This is a text file on my switch ..... testData

    ·        I want to issue a Junos or Linux command to do the following:  rename "testdata" as "mrct-nddn-02_testData"


    Is there a quick Junos or Linux way to get my switch name and append it to the file name ?
