Just a quick post today to highlight a couple of my favorite ArubaOS v8 CLI commands of the week.
The first is show configuration diff <node A> <node B>. This handy tool lets you compare what’s different between two different hierarchy containers. Great for chasing down obscure config items.
The second is show references, followed by a profile type and name – it will tell you all the profiles that reference the one provided. Very handy if you’re trying to clean up cruft and want to find profiles that are abandoned and no longer useful, or if it won’t let you delete a profile because it is still in use (where it will annoyingly not actually tell you where)
That’s all for today!
