Using the ONTAP command-line interface

Contributors

The ONTAP command-line interface (CLI) provides a command-based view of the management interface. You enter commands at the storage system prompt, and command results are displayed in text.

The CLI command prompt is represented as cluster_name::>.

If you set the privilege level (that is, the -privilege parameter of the set command) to advanced, the prompt includes an asterisk (*), for example:

cluster_name::*>
