The Execute Command Script used to configure a banner on a Cisco device takes a long time.


  • NCM 6.1 or later


When using NCM to add or modify a banner, disable prompt detection as this is only one command and the NCM logic will check often for a prompt, causing excessive time for the script to complete.

To work around this, add macros in the script to tell NCM not to check for a prompt, and then turn the prompt detection back on once the banner command is complete.


${DisablePromptDetection} will turn this off and ${EnablePromptDetection} will re-enable it.


In the command, do the following:


conf t


banner motd ^C


Banner Text here





This will result in a speedier process.
