SonicWALL Name change in SSH CLI

Trying to figure out how to change the firewall name. I've looked at the CLI guide and it says that the command is "name <string>" (without quotations).

I've tried the following combinations
name "Test - SonicWALL"
name <Test - SonicWALL>
name Test - SonicWALL
name Test SonicWALL


Here is the output:
(config)> name  <string>
Where:
                      <string> = (ident)

(config)> name "Test - SonicWALL"
%% expected string
%%
name <string>
Where:
                      <string> = (ident)

(config)> name <Test - SonicWALL>
%% expected string
%%
name <string>
Where:
                      <string> = (ident)

(config)> name Test - SonicWALL
%% Extra token(s) at command end (-)
name <string>
Where:
                      <string> = (ident)

(config)> name Test SonicWALL
%% Extra token(s) at command end (SonicWALL)
name <string>
Where:
                      <string> = (ident)



Someone please assist. Thank you.

Try a single name TestSonicWALL. Host names news to be a single string not separated by spaces or special characters.

Cheers,

Thanks for the reply Alan. Unfortunately that won't cut it.. We need our SonicWALL's to have the following format "MAC (Company - Location)"  i.e, 0017C577AA77 (Hi There - Hello There)

Going into the GUI and changing this takes up too much time, I'm currently writing a program that'll do all of this in SSH.

I found my answer.. Looks like a new Enhanced CLI is being released with SonicOS 5.9.0.0.

You can SSH into 67.100.211.176 and try out the new commands! :) Enjoy!

Looks like SonicWALL is releasing a new firmware in the near future that will have the Name Change functionality.
