Why do configuration commands not take effect on CE series switches

After configuring commands in two-stage mode on CE series switches, you need to run the commit command to make the configurations take effect.

In the two-stage mode, the system configuration process is divided into two stages:
Stage 1: Enter a configuration command and edit the configuration.
Stage 2: Run the commit command to submit the configuration so that the new configuration takes effect in the current system.

In V100R003 and later versions, if a user modifies a configuration in two-stage mode but does not submit the configuration, the system prompt changes from ~ to *, reminding the user that the configuration has not been submitted. The system prompt will change back to ~ after the user runs the commit command. Uncommitted configurations will not be saved in the configuration file.
