CLI "target" command

L4 Transporter

Can someone please explain what the CLI "target" command actually does?  It says that its for a "management session target".  What does that actually mean?

Really good question :smileyhappy:

The manual doesnt really explain this:


Configures and shows a management session target.


target {set <value> | show}


> set — Sets the target device

> show — Shows the management session target

Sample Output

The following command displays the management session target.

username@hostname> target show



Required Privilege Level

superuser, vsysadmin, deviceadmin

Edit. Could this have to do with either VSYS or when you work in Panorama?

There isn't a target command in Panorama.

Must be VSYS related.
