Aruba switches 2930F weird putty output

Hi guys,

 

I always use putty to connect to switches and save the session logs with no problem. Now I am using putty to connect to my new switches 2930F but when I save the session log the file has a somewhat encrypted parts. Attached the putty file when I issued the commands "show flash", "show version" and "show running-config".

I have tried with both ssh and telnet in to the switch, but both log files are the same.

Do I have to configure anything special on the switches?

 

Regards,

Julián

Those weird outputs are terminal control commands, which are a remainder from the old (VT100) terminals. These codes move the cursor around, change text colors, and are used for some kind of formatting as good as it can get on the old terminals.

 

If you want to get rid of these codes, you can select in Putty to only log printable commands:

For most purposes that is easier. If you log to files and have large outputs, I think that you already found the command: "no page" which disables the pagination (-- MORE --, next page: Space, next line: Enter, quit: Control-C) thus need to press space all the time.

Hi Herman,

 

Thank you very much. I have tried by choosing Printable Output and the output is more readable, however, the commands output appear after the command and not in the next line, like this:

I guess there is no other solution. What do you think?
