Operation Procedure

Operation Procedure

This section describes how to manage configuration files on eSight, helping you quickly master configuration file management operations.

Table 12-51 Operation procedure of configuration file management

Step

Operation

Description

1

Set protocol parameters on the device: SNMP and Telnet

  • If SNMP is used, the MIB view including ISO nodes must be configured. SNMPv2c read and write permissions are mandatory.

    For details about how to configure the SNMP protocol on the device, see Configuring the SNMP Protocol on Devices.

  • The Telnet privilege mode on eSight must be the same as that on the device.

    For details about how to set Telnet parameters on the device, see Setting Telnet Parameters on Devices.

2

Add devices to eSight.

Select a proper device addition mode based on the site requirements.

For details about how to add devices to eSight, see Adding Devices to eSight.

3

Check the SFTP service status.

If SFTP is used to manage configuration files, run the following command on the device to enable first-time authentication on the SSH client:

ssh client first-time enable

4

Back up configuration files.

eSight can back up the running and startup configuration files in manual or automatic mode.

If a device is configured to save policies periodically, eSight automatically backs up the configuration files when any change occurs.

5

Notify the backup result through emails.

After email notification is enabled and backup parameters are set, eSight sends the execution result of the periodic backup task or configuration file changes through emails.

6

Restore configuration files.

If a fault occurs on a device, the backup configuration file can be uploaded to the device to quickly restore the device's configuration data.

7

Maintain configuration files.

You can compare and baseline the configuration files and view configuration changes.

Checking the FTP Server Status

  • In the Windows scenario:
    1. Log in to the eSight server as the Administrator user.
    2. Check whether the value of enable corresponding to the SFTP protocol in the D:\eSight\AppBase\sysagent\etc\sysconf\svcbase\med_node_1_svc.xml file is true.
      NOTE:

      In the file name, D:\eSight must be changed to the actual installation directory.

      <config name="sftp">
      <param name="enable">true</param> 
      </config>
      • If the parameter value is true, the SFTP server is normal.
      • If the parameter value is false, follow instructions in the Configuring the System Files Service section in the Maintenance guide to configure the SFTP server.
  • In the Linux scenario:
    1. Log in to the eSight server as the root user.
    2. Check whether the value of enable corresponding to the SFTP protocol in the /opt/eSight/AppBase/sysagent/etc/sysconf/svcbase/med_node_1_svc.xml file is true.
      NOTE:

      In the file name, /opt/eSight must be changed to the actual installation directory.

      <config name="sftp">  
      <param name="enable">true</param> 
      </config>
      • If the parameter value is true, the SFTP server is normal.
      • If the parameter value is false, follow instructions in the Configuring the System Files Service section in the Maintenance guide to configure the SFTP server.

Backing Up Configuration Files

After configurations are completed and the device goes online, you are advised to back up configuration files of the device in a timely manner to prevent loss of important service data.

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Configuration > Configuration File Management from the main menu.

  2. Back up configuration files.
  • Automatic backup

    In the navigation tree on the left, choose Manage Config Files > Backup Tasks to create an automatic backup task.

  • Manual backup

    In the navigation tree on the left, choose Manage Config Files > Config Files and select related devices to back up configuration files.

Notifying the Backup Result Through Emails

After email notification is enabled, eSight sends emails to notify users of execution results of periodic backup tasks so that users can rapidly learn the backup and change of configuration files.

If the content in configuration files changes, eSight also triggers configuration file change alarms.

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Configuration > Configuration File Management from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Set System Parameters > Backup Parameters to set backup parameters.
  3. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Set System Parameters > Email Notification to enable email notification.

Restoring Configuration Files

Configuration file restoration may result in service interruption.

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Configuration > Configuration File Management from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Manage Config Files > Config Files.
  3. Restore configuration files.
  • If you restore the configuration to the running configuration, the restoration operation takes effect immediately. If you restore the configuration to the startup configuration, the restoration operation takes effect after the device restarts.
  • After you perform the configuration file restoration operation, deleted and modified data is added to the device and configuration data that exists on the device but is not included in the backup configuration file remains.
  • Restoring a configuration file: Click next to the required configuration file, select the configuration file to restore, click , and select To Running or To Startup.
  • Restoring configuration files in batches: Select multiple devices, click Restore Device to Baseline, and select To Running or To Startup.

Maintaining Configuration Files

  1. Choose Resource > Network > Configuration > Configuration File Management from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Manage Config Files > Config Files to compare and baseline configuration files and view configuration changes.
