Description (partial)

When you issue the commands copy run ftp: or copy run tftp: and specify the full syntax of the command with all required information such as username:password@hostname the parser will still prompt you for confirmation and make you hit returns.

Some customers don't like the fact that when you use the copy run ftp: and specify the username:password and filename in the command it still prompts you for confirmation. This give them problems when they use scripts to write the running configurations to ftp or tftp servers.

router#copy run ftp://user:pass@
Wed Dec 30 09:01:53.681 EST
Host name or IP address (control-c to abort): [user:*@]?
Destination file name (control-c to abort): [running12-30-2009]?
Building configuration..
1182 lines built in 2 seconds (591)lines/sec

The same behavior is seen with copy run tftp:

router#copy run tftp://
Wed Dec 30 09:09:58.189 EST
Host name or IP address (control-c to abort): []?
Destination file name (control-c to abort): [/tftpboot/crs-c12302009]?

But a command like install add does not prompt for confirmation.

router(admin)#install add ftp://user:pass@

This is a feature request to eliminate this prompting behavior in a future release.

This is a request to change a behavior that appears to be a day 1 IOS-XR behavior.
