=== cut here ===
To set the display string on port 7:20 to "engmail server"
configure port 7:20 display-string "engmail server"
=== and here ===
In the PDF manual from ExtremeWare 7.6 they say the string can be up
to 16 chars.
In the PDF manual from Extreme XOS 11.4 they say the string can be up
to 15 chars.
Just did a test on a Summit 200-24 running Extremeware Version 7.4e.2.6
* TESTSTST:5 # configure port 1 display-string "a b c"
* TESTSTST:6 # configure port 1 display-string "a b c b e f g h i j k l m o p "
Warning: port display string exceeds maximum length of 15 characters, truncatin"
* TESTSTST:7 #
The conclusion is that you can put spaces (if using ""), but you're
limited to 15-16 chars.
