When can I change the VC & OA CLI Prompt to what I want it to be?

Chris was looking for an update to the CLI for the OA and for Virtual Connect:




Is there a way to change the VC CLI prompt from “ -> ” to a site name?  It would be nice to be able to designate each VC site and see it when logged in to the VC via CLI.




Info from Monty:




The OA CLI always displays the OA name after the prompt.


The OA CLI command “set oa name xxxx” can be used to set the OA name string. 


Using this OA CLI command, you can set the name to reflect site, enclosure, OA position, whatever – within the limits of the length and character limitations of the string.


This string is limited to the characters supported by the DNS RFC as it is the advertised DNS name of the OA if Dynamic DNS is enabled.




Any other input?
