    CSR1000v CLI Doesn't Work Correctly

    I'm running ESXi ver 5.1 on a Dell with 2 Xeon quadcore 5530 with 72Gb of RAM.

    I'm running two CSR1000v versions from my CCO download to try to get them to work:




    Both of them boot properly, I can telnet in with SecureCRT.  Now the problem I have is when I type "?", it sits there.  I have to hit ENTER, then it just gives about 22 commands (through "dir") and goes back to privilege exec mode.

    Another weird thing is if I type a command then ENTER, hit the UP arrow to recall the command I get this:



    I don't know what is going on with this.  Any suggestions are appreciated.  Thanks.

    Hello Troy,

    I too am using ESXi 5.1, but I am using 9.03.11.  I have not tried the latest and greatest version of CSR, but have had zero issues with 11.

    I also followed these instructions to get it loaded and working.

    Good luck,

    I'm running esxi 5.5, but on i7 2600 with 16GB of ram.

    I have the same problems you're having, especially with the up arrow. Also, if I hit enter, it always does a double enter. I'm using putty

    I'm running csr1000v-universalk9.03.13.01.S.154-3.S1-ext

    I tried both 11 and 14 and had the same result.

    I was able to solve all my issues by changing Port URI from <ip address of esxi host>:<port number> to telnet://<ip address of host>:<port number>

    This is an old thread, but I'm having the same issue where each time I press "Enter" it's as though I pressed it twice. I get two carraige returns.


    I'm using ESXi 5.1 U3 and CSR1000v 3.11.04.S.

    The fix listed here didn't work for me as I was already configured that way. I even tried the incorrect way, no joy.
