characters need to be input, the system automatically inputs a default character string, or inputs an
empty character string when there is no default character string.
For the commands used to switch user interfaces, such as telnet, ftp, and ssh2, the commands
used to switch views, such as system-view, quit, and the commands used to modify status of a
user that is executing commands, such as super, the operation interface, command view and
status of the current user are not changed after the automatic execution function is performed.
If the system time is modified after the automatic execution function is configured, the scheduled
automatic execution configuration turns invalid automatically.
Only the last configuration takes effect if you execute the schedule job command repeatedly.

Device Software Overview
Device software consists of the Boot ROM program and the system boot file. After the device is

runs the boot file. The boot file provides hardware driver and adaptation for the system, and provides
the support for the different functions. The Boot ROM program and system boot file are required for the
startup and running of a device.
