Avocent ACS 6016/6008 Renaming Ports From CLI

These console servers are fairly easy to setup, but the CLI is segmented to facilitate differing levels of access.

If you wish to rename a serial port (i.e., with hostname) from the CLI, you need to do the following

1. Figure out which port is being renamed (i.e., port 11)
2. log in with appropriate credentials via SSH (or direct serial)

cd ports


cd serial_ports

4b. You can check out the parameters here:

--:#- [serial_ports/physical] cli-> show
port: 11
enable_cisco_rj45_pin-out = yes
status = enabled
speed = 9600
parity = none
data_bits = 8
stop_bits = 1

flow_control = none 

5. set port name

set port_name=my_new_name


--:#- [serial_ports/cas] cli-> set port_name=unused 

8. save the config


That's it, basically.
