    I have a little hint for you: When you want to display your current configuration, the output format is the xml output. This can be changed in the following way:
    – (leave the configure mode via exit)
    – set cli config-output-format set
    – configure (= entering configure mode again)
    – show
    Now your configuration is shown with all the set commands you just configured.
