Console Configuration Mode Commands

(ACE module only) Console configuration mode commands allow you to configure the console interface settings. To access console configuration mode, use the line console command in configuration mode. The CLI prompt changes to (config-console). For information about the commands in console configuration mode, see the commands in this section.

Usage Guidelines

All commands in this mode require the Admin user role. For details about role-based access control (RBAC) and user roles, see the Virtualization Guide, Cisco ACE Application Control Engine.

The console port is an asynchronous serial port on the Catalyst 6500 series switch that enables the ACE to be set up for initial configuration through a standard RS-232 port with an RJ-45 connector. Any device connected to this port must be capable of asynchronous transmission. Connection to a terminal requires a terminal emulator to be configured at 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.

Examples

To enter console configuration mode, enter:

host1/Admin(config)# line console
host1/Admin(config-console)#
