Emulating Legacy CLI Commands¶
Earlier releases of netsim-tools used numerous Bash scripts and Ansible playbooks that are now included in the Python netsim-tools package. To use those tools directly, download the source code from the GitHub repository and use
source setup.sh to set up the PATH variable; to emulate them with netlab commands, set up Bash aliases with netlab alias.
$ eval "$(netlab alias)"
The following aliases are create by the netlab alias command:
$ netlab alias # # Aliases for old netsim-tools CLI commands # alias connect.sh="netlab connect" alias initial-config.ansible="netlab initial" alias create-config.ansible="netlab initial -o config" alias collect-configs.ansible="netlab collect -o config" alias config.ansible="netlab config -" alias create-topology="netlab topology"
