Enabling Administrative Services
There are many features of the Pluribus Networks fabric that require or can be enhanced using remote access. For example, when Netvisor ONE writes packets to a log file, transfer the file from a switch to a different system for analysis. Also, if you create a NetVM environment, you must load the OS of the guest OS on the switch.
Netvisor ONE supports file transfer method SFTP.
SFTP is enabled by default. Because SFTP relies on Secure Shell (SSH), you must enable SSH before enabling SFTP.
1. To check the status of SFTP, use the following command:
CLI (network-admin@Leaf1)>admin-service-show
switch: Leaf-2
if: mgmt
ssh: on
nfs: on
web: on
web-ssl: off
web-ssl-port: 443
web-port: 80
web-log:      off
snmp: on
net-api: on
icmp: on
switch: techpub-accton-2
if: data
ssh: on
nfs: on
web: on
web-ssl: off
web-ssl-port: 443
web-port: 80
web-log:      off
snmp: on
net-api: on
icmp: on/off
 
 
2. To enable SSH, use the following command:
CLI (network-admin@Leaf1)>admin-service-modify nic mgmt ssh
admin-sftp-modify enable
sftp password: <password>
confirm sftp password: <password>
 
The default SFTP username is sftp and change the password using the admin-sftp-modify command:
CLI (network-admin@Leaf1)>admin-sftp-modify
sftp password: <password>
confirm sftp password: <password>
CLI (network-admin@Leaf1)>admin-service-show
switch      nic     ssh   nfs   web   web-port   snmp   net-api   icmp
------      ­­­­---     ---   ---   ---   --------   ----   -------   ----
pleiades24  mgmt    on    on    off   80         off    off       off
 
CLI (network-admin@Leaf1)>admin-sftp-show
switch:     pleiades24
sftp-user:  sftp
enable:     yes
 
Use SFTP from a host to the switch, and login with the username sftp and the password configured for SFTP. Then you can download the available files or upload files to the switch.
