Translating Configuration Commands to XML Packets

This section describes how to translate configuration commands into XML packets in the NETCONF YANG model. The obtained packets help you manage devices through the NETCONF model.


CLI and NETCONF are two device management models, which have a mapping relationship. To quickly obtain NETCONF YANG packets corresponding to configuration commands, perform the following steps.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run xml-translate begin

    The CLI-to-XML translation mode is accessed.

  3. Run the configuration commands to be translated.
  4. Run either of the following commands as needed:

    • To translate the configuration commands to XML packets, run the xml-translate end command.

      When the command to be converted corresponds to both the new and deprecated nodes, the YANG packet converted using the xml-translate end command contains the data of the two nodes. When the converted packet is sent, a message is displayed, indicating that the configuration already exists. You are advised to delete the data of a node based on the actual situation before the packet is sent.

    • To stop the CLI-to-XML translation and exit the translation mode, run the xml-translate abort command.
