Netsight Inventory Manager FTP / SCP Server


Userlevel 3
Is a FTP server included or will their be a FTP server in future in the Netsight appliances?

Customers ask for to use it with the Inventory Manager to backup Wireless Controllers.

If not, is it possible to install a ftp server package into the Netsight appliance?

Kind regards
Christoph

Christoph,

WLAN Controller backup using Inventory Manager is working but you need to change some settings.

In IM go to the network elements tab and click on the WLAN Controller.
Then on the right site click the Image Information tab and change Firmware Download MIB to Script and Device Family to Enterasys. (screenshot below).



Then in the option section of the IM set the SCP password - us the data of a Netsight Account.
In my case I've put in the account information of the Netsight root user (it's a lab installation).



Kind regards,
Ron

Hmm, I have no options in the Device Family Definition File Name drop down.

Personally I use rancid to save the configuration, but the Netsight appliance is just Ubuntu, so you can
code:
apt-get install proftpd
pretty easily.
