Juniper Command Line CLI help

Juniper offers us a help to know how to write the commands correctly. For example, let’s say that I want to change the root password and I don’t know how to do it. I can use the help from Juniper and it will guide me how I can change the root password on Juniper router.

I am going to do a LAB to go through the help and see how it works.

I am still connected to the Juniper router via console. Let’s log in to the root and write just a question mark “?” :

root# ?
