Data ONTAP command line interface

Data ONTAP provides several features to assist you when you enter commands on the command line.

When using the Data ONTAP command line, be aware of the following general rules:
  • If you are entering a command with an element that includes a space, you must quote that element. For example,

    toaster> environment status chassis "Power Supply"

  • Do not use a # character in the command string.

    A # character always means to comment out the rest of the line, so Data ONTAP will ignore any information following the #.
