Alias Exec Command on CISCO Router/Switch

Command

Alias Exec

Use

This command is used to create shortcuts to various commands. While it is definately handy in the real world, we would not recommend using alias exec while studying for the CCNA, as you could potentially get more used to your own commands instead of Cisco’s commands.

Syntax

Router(config)#alias exec <alias> <real command>

Example

In this example, we will set quick aliases to some of my favorite commands.

2611XM(config)#alias exec s sho ip int brief
2611XM(config)#alias exec ss sho ip int brief | ex unass
