IPv6 Embedded Management Components

IPv6 Embedded Management Components

Cisco IPv6 embedded management components have IPv6-compliant operability in IPv6 and hybrid IPv6 and IPv4 networks. This document describes the following embedded management components: syslog, config logger, TCL, NETCONF, and the SOAP message format.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Information About IPv6 Embedded Management Components

Syslog

The Cisco system message logging (syslog) process in IPv6 allows users to log syslog messages to external syslog servers and hosts with IPv6 addresses. This implementation allows user to specify an IPv4-based logging host (syslog server) by providing the host’s IP address in IPv4 format (for example, 192.168.0.0) or IPv6 format (for example, 2001:DB8:A00:1::1/64).

Config Logger

Config logger tracks and reports configuration changes. Config logger supports two content types:

  • Plain text--With plain-text format, the config logger reports configuration changes only.
  • XML--The config logger uses XML to report the configuration change details (for example, what changed, who changed it, when changes were made, parser return code [PRC] values, and incremental NVGEN results).

TCL

Tool command language (TCL) is used in Cisco software for IPv6 to support features such as embedded syslog manager (ESM), embedded event manager (EEM), interactive voice response (IVR), and tclsh parser mode. TCL supports both initiating (client) and listening (server) sockets.

NETCONF

The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) defines a mechanism through which a network device can be managed, configuration data information can be retrieved, and new configuration data can be uploaded and manipulated. NETCONF uses XML-based data encoding for the configuration data and protocol messages.

SOAP Message Format

Using the Service-Oriented Access Protocol (SOAP) provides a way to format the layout of Cisco Networking Services (CNS) messages in a consistent manner. SOAP is intended for exchanging structured information in a decentralized, distributed environment. SOAP uses XML technologies to define an extensible messaging framework that provides a message format that can be exchanged over a variety of underlying protocols.

Within the SOAP message structure, there is a security header that enables CNS notification messages to authenticate user credentials.

How to Configure IPv6 Embedded Management Components

Configuring Syslog over IPv6

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    logging host {{ip-address | hostname} | {ipv6 ipv6-address | hostname}} [transport {udp [port port-number] | tcp [port port-number] [audit]}] [xml | filtered [stream stream-id]] [alarm [severity]]


DETAILED STEPS
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 logging host {{ip-address | hostname} | {ipv6 ipv6-address | hostname}} [transport {udp [port port-number] | tcp [port port-number] [audit]}] [xml | filtered [stream stream-id]] [alarm [severity]]


    Example:
    Device(config)# logging host ipv6 AAAA:BBBB:CCCC:DDDD::FFFF 
     

    Logs system messages and debug output to a remote host.

     

    Configuration Examples for IPv6 Embedded Management Components

    Example: Configuring Syslog over IPv6

    Device(config)# logging host ipv6 AAAA:BBBB:CCCC:DDDD::FFFF transport tcp port 1470
