    Lab problem with % Invalid input detected at '^' marker


      I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm working on a lab in Packet Tracer, and I'm running into a problem. The lab is asking me to rename the  hostname on a switch, connected to a laptop. I open the 'Terminal", press my enter key, and type 'hostname LOCAL-SWITCH'. It responds by giving me this: "% Invalid input detected at '^' marker." I'm a little stumped. I can type hostname, and it'll try to resolve a hostname unsuccessfully, but that's it.
