    Figure 8-2  Role configuration (advanced)

    Table 8-1 describes the parameters for a Commander.

    Table 8-1  Role parameters



    IP address

    This parameter is mandatory. Select an existing IP address from the drop-down list box.


    If you keep this field blank, the default UDP port is used.

    Topology function

    If you select ON, the Commander is enabled to collect topology information so that you can deploy and maintain the network based on the topology.

    Automatic client discovery

    If you select ON, the Commander automatically learns client information, including each client's MAC address, ESN, IP address, device type, device model, system software name, configuration file name, and patch file name. This function enables the Commander to monitor and manage basic information and version files for clients on the network.

    Aging time of offline clients

    If you select ON, set an aging time.

    If the Commander does not receive status information from a client in 2 minutes, the Commanders considers the client offline. When the number of clients managed by a Commander reaches the upper limit, new client information cannot be added to the Commander. To release the space occupied by offline clients in the client database, configure an aging time for offline clients. When the aging time expires, the Commander deletes the offline client.

    File Server Configuration

    Server type

    Options are FTP, SFTP, and TFTP.


    FTP and TFTP cannot ensure secure file transfer. SFTP is recommended on networks that require high security.

    IP address

    Enter the IP address of the file server.

    User name

    Set the user name used to log in to the file server.


    Set the password used to log in to the file server.

    Download File Configuration

    File activation mode

    Options are Default mode and Reset mode.

    By default, if downloaded files include a software package (*.cc), clients activate all the downloaded files by resetting. In a batch upgrade, if downloaded files include a configuration file, clients activate all the downloaded files by resetting.

    File activation time

    Options are Immediate, Delayed, and Scheduled. If you select Delayed or Scheduled, specify a time.

    Automatically clear storage space

    If you select yes, clients will delete non-startup system software packages if they do not have sufficient space for downloaded files.


    This function is invalid for some types of file servers. If the file server is a TFTP server, this function does not take effect because the TFTP server does not return file size to clients. If an FTP or SFTP server cannot return the file size, this function does not take effect yet.

    Automatic Backup Configuration

    File backup mode

    Options are Non-backup, Save backup file as new file, and Overwrite original file.

    Default File Settings

    System file name

    If you do not specify any file information, the default file information is used.

    You can specify a maximum of three self-defined files.

    System version

    Configuration file name

    Patch file name

    Web file name

    License file name

    User-defined file name

  5. Set parameters on the Role page.
  6. Click Apply.
