[Enterasys S8] cannot grep/find


we have installed some months ago at our University Campus an Enterasys S8 as a core router.

With time, the configuration became quite lenghty, and having a tool to filter out the configuration would be useful.

We are running this version:

Show config |find somesearchstring
Make sure it's |find. If you include a space after the pipe, find won't work.
Thanks Jeremy, it works.

I was used with Juniper/Cisco/HP to always include a space after pipe, so I couldn't realize this.

Also, I don't find really helpful that after writing "|?" the CLI doesn't give you any clue.


Yeah, I don't know why they haven't made the search more robust. I have put it in as a feature request many times.
