Severity: 4-Minor


Issuing the command 'tmsh save sys config' results in a question when display threshold is set and when management routes are configured. There is no prompt when no management routes are configured. This question is posted only when management-routes are configured, and does not appear when other provisioning commands are issued and the config is saved.


When there are more items configured than the threshold, the system presents a question: Display all <number> items? (y/n) Scripts are stopped until the prompt is answered.


1. Set the cli preference display-threshold to a smaller value than the default. 2. Create management routes. 3. Issue the following command: tmsh save sys config


To prevent the question from popping up, set display threshold to 0 (zero). In the case of this script, you can also delete the management route definitions to prevent the question from being asked.
