Set Terminal Length

If you try to run two policies containing SSH objects at the same time, then unexpected errors can occur. For example, the first policy can send commands in the SSH session created by the second policy. These errors occur because a class which handles the SSH connection is static.

Sets the terminal length for the device. Terminal length determines the number of rows returned by a page. Setting the terminal length to zero (0) removes any output pagination and will return all output from executing the specified command.

If this Object is used in an Automation Manager Policy that attempts to connect to a target device that is configured to use only SSH-2, the Policy may fail as the connection can be refused due to an invalid server version string error. This error will not occur for target devices that are configured to use only SSH-1 or to use either SSH-1 or SSH-2.
