Cisco ISE Command Reference

Cisco identity Services Engine (ISE) CLI commands have these modes:

  • EXEC

System-level

Show

  • Configuration

Configuration submodes


Note Use the config or configure command in system-level EXEC mode to access configuration mode.


Each of the commands in this appendix is followed by a brief description of its use, command syntax, usage guidelines, and one or more examples. Throughout this appendix, the Cisco ISE server uses the name ise as hostname.


Note If an error occurs in command usage, use the debug command to troubleshoot the error.


This appendix describes:

EXEC Commands

 

application configure

To configure Microsoft Active Directory settings, ERS API, and MnT database related operations in Cisco ISE, use the application configure command in EXEC mode.

application [ configure { application-name }]

 
Syntax Description

configure

Configures a specific application.

application-name

Application name. Supports up to 255 alphanumeric characters.

Parameter Name

Use dns.servers.

Parameter Value

Specifies the IPv4 address of a specific name-server.

 
Command Default

No default behavior or values.

 
Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

You can configure Cisco ISE to use only a specific name-server that has the required Active Directory configuration when there are multiple IP name-servers that are configured in a Cisco ISE node.

Cisco ISE allows you to configure Active Directory settings by using the application configure command. You can configure whitelisting domains and authenticate against whitelisted domains.

Use the Display Profiler Statistics option in the application configure command to display live statistics from the profiling events by probe and type. This data is collected only from the Policy Service nodes and you will not see this data in Monitoring nodes. It leverages existing JMX counters that previously required the root patch or external JConsole to retrieve, and so there is no need to use the root patch to capture this data.

You must reset the monitoring database only when the Cisco ISE server is not in the deployment.


Note We recommend to reset primary and secondary Monitoring node databases at the same time to prevent discrepancy in log files.

Usage Guidelines

You can use the application reset-config command to reset the Cisco ISE configuration and clear the Cisco ISE database without reimaging the Cisco ISE appliance or VMware. The reset requires you to enter new Cisco ISE database administrator and user passwords.


Note Although the application reset-config command resets the Cisco ISE configuration to factory defaults, the operating system (Cisco ADE-OS) configuration still remains intact. The Cisco ADE-OS configuration includes items such as the network settings, CLI password policy, and backup history.


When you reset the Cisco ISE application configuration from the CLI, it performs a leave operation disconnecting the ISE node from the Active Directory domain if it is already joined. However, the Cisco ISE node account is not removed from the Active Directory domain. We recommend that you perform a leave operation from the Cisco ISE Admin portal with the Active Directory credentials. The leave operation removes the node account from the Active Directory domain.

Note This command was introduced in Cisco ISE Maintenance Release 1.0.4 and does not apply to Cisco ISE, Release 1.0. Use this command to reset the Admin portal password. It does not affect the CLI password for the specified administrator ID.


To reset the Admin portal login password for a specified user account (usually an existing administrator account) in Cisco ISE after the administrator account has been disabled due to incorrect password entries, use the application reset-passwd command in EXEC mode. You can also use this command to reset the Cisco ISE database administrator and user passwords.

application [ reset-passwd { application-name } { administrator-ID | internal-database-admin | internal-database-user }]

 
Syntax Description

reset-passwd

Resets the administrator account password.

application-name

Application name. Supports up to 255 alphanumeric characters.

administrator-ID

Name of a disabled administrator account for which you want to reset the password.

internal-database-admin

Identifies the Cisco ISE database system-level password. You must create this password (there is no default). The password must be a minimum of 11 characters in length and include at least one lowercase letter, at least one uppercase letter, and at least one number (0-9).

internal-database-user

Identifies the Cisco ISE database access-level password. You must create this password (there is no default). The password must be a minimum of 11 characters in length and include at least one lowercase letter, at least one uppercase letter, and at least one number (0 to 9).

internal-comm-user

 
Command Default

No default behavior or values. necessary to disable the administrator account in Cisco ISE

 
Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

The following special characters are allowed when resetting the Cisco ISE Admin portal password:

 

~
!
@
$

&

*

-

_

+

=

\

"

,

;

<

>

If you enter an incorrect password for an administrator user ID more than the specified number of times, then the Admin portal “locks you out” of the system. Cisco ISE suspends the credentials for it. administrator user ID until you have an opportunity to reset the password associated with it. You can reset the administrator password only in the Administration ISE node CLI.

Typically, you need to specify the Cisco ISE database administrator and user passwords only once during an initial configuration or upgrade. If it is necessary to change either of these passwords later, you can use the application reset-passwd command.

UTF-8 admin users can change passwords only through the Cisco ISE Admin portal.

Examples

Example 1

ise/admin# application reset-passwd ise admin
Enter new password: ******
Confirm new password: ******
 
Password reset successfully.
ise/admin#

Example 2

ise/admin# application reset-passwd ise internal-database-admin
Enter new database admin password: ***********
Confirm new database admin password: ***********
 
Password reset successfully.
ise/admin#

Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

Enables an application.

You cannot use this command to start Cisco ISE. If you try to, you will be prompted that Cisco ISE is already running.

You can use the application start safe command to start Cisco ISE in a safe mode that allows you to disable access control temporarily to the Admin portal and then restart the application after making necessary changes.

The safe option provides a means of recovery in the event that you as an administrator inadvertently lock out all users from accessing the Cisco ISE Admin portal. This event can happen if you configure an incorrect "IP Access" list in the Administration > Admin Access > Settings > Access page. The safe option also bypasses certificate-based authentication and reverts to the default username and password authentication for logging in to the Cisco ISE Admin portal.

Usage Guidelines

Upgrades an application, and preserves any application configuration data. See Cisco Identity Services Engine Upgrade Guide, Release 1.2 for more information.

Using cleanup , prepare , and proceed options with the application configure ise command are supported only for upgrading from Cisco ISE, Release 1.2 to an higher version/release.

  • Use the cleanup option, if you want to try another upgrade bundle in case of a failure or use a different version.
  • Use the prepare option to download and extract an upgrade bundle locally.
  • Use the proceed option to upgrade Cisco ISE using the upgrade bundle you extracted with the prepare option. You can use this option after preparing an upgrade bundle instead of using the application upgrade < ise-upgradebundle-1.2-to-1.2.1.xxx.i386.tar.gz > < remote-repository>.

If upgrade is successful, this option removes the upgrade bundle.

If upgrade fails for any reason, this option retains the upgrade bundle.

If you issue the application upgrade command when another application upgrade operation is in progress, you will see the following warning message:

An existing application install, remove, or upgrade is in progress. Try again shortly.

Caution Do not issue the backup or restore commands when an upgrade is in progress. This action might cause the database to be corrupted.


Note Before attempting to use the application upgrade command, you must read the upgrade instructions in the release notes supplied with the newer release. The release notes contains important updated instructions and they must be followed.

Caution Changing the system time on a Cisco ISE appliance causes the Cisco ISE application to be unusable.

For more information on how changing system time impacts different Cisco ISE nodes types of your deployment and the steps to recover from the impact, see the “Standalone or Primary ISE Node” section and “Secondary ISE Node” section.

Standalone or Primary ISE Node

Changing the system time after installation is not supported on a standalone or primary ISE node.

If you inadvertently change the system time, do the following:

  • Revert to the original system time (the time before it was changed).
  • Run the application reset-config ise command from the CLI of that node.
  • Restore from the last known good backup before the time change on that node.

Secondary ISE Node

Changing the system time on a secondary node renders it unusable in your deployment.

To synchronize the system time of the secondary node with the primary node, do the following:

  • Deregister the secondary ISE node.
  • Correct the system time to be in sync with the primary ISE node.
  • Run the application reset-config ise command from the CLI of the primary ISE node.
  • Reregister the ISE node as a secondary ISE node to the primary ISE node.

Note To ensure that you have the correct system time set at the time of installation, the setup wizard requires you to specify an Network Time Protocol (NTP) server and tries to sync with it. You must ensure that the NTP server configured during setup is always reachable so that the system time is always kept accurate, especially in rare situations where the BIOS time can get corrupted because of power failure or CMOS battery failure. This, in turn, can corrupt the Cisco ADE-OS system time during a reboot. If you do not configure an NTP server during setup, then you have to ensure that the system BIOS time is set relative to the Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) time zone as described in Cisco Identity Services Engine Hardware Installation Guide, Release 1.2.

Related Commands

Command
Description

show running-config

Displays the contents of the currently running configuration file or the configuration.

show startup-config

Displays the contents of the startup configuration file or the configuration.

copy

To copy a file from a source to a destination, use the copy command in EXEC mode. The copy command in Cisco ISE copies a running or start up configuration.

Running Configuration

The Cisco ISE active configuration stores itself in the Cisco ISE RAM. Every configuration command you enter resides in the running configuration. If you reboot a Cisco ISE server, you lose the running configuration. If you make changes that you want to save, you must copy the running configuration to a safe location, such as a network server, or save it as the Cisco ISE server startup configuration.

Startup Configuration

You cannot edit a startup configuration directly. All commands that you enter store themselves in the running configuration, which you can copy into the startup configuration.

In other words, when you boot a Cisco ISE server, the startup configuration becomes the initial running configuration. As you modify the configuration, the two diverge: the startup configuration remains the same; the running configuration reflects the changes that you have made. If you want to make your changes permanent, you must copy the running configuration to the startup configuration.

The following command lines show some of the copy command scenarios available:

copy running-config startup-config Copies the running configuration to the startup configuration.

copy run start —Replaces the startup configuration with the running configuration.


Note If you do not save the running configuration, you will lose all your configuration changes during the next reboot of the Cisco ISE server. When you are satisfied that the current configuration is correct, copy your configuration to the startup configuration with the copy run start command.


copy startup-config running-config —Copies the startup configuration to the running configuration.

copy start run —Merges the startup configuration on top of the running configuration.

copy [ protocol://hostname/location ] startup-config —Copies but does not merge a remote file to the startup configuration.

copy [ protocol://hostname/location ] running-config —Copies and merges a remote file to the running configuration.

copy startup-config [ protocol://hostname/location ]— Copies the startup configuration to a remote system.

copy running-config [ protocol://hostname/location ]— Copies the running configuration to a remote system.

copy logs [ protocol://hostname/location ]— Copies log files from the system to another location.


Note The copy command is supported only for the local disk and not for a repository.


 
Syntax Description

running-config

Represents the current running configuration file.

startup-config

Represents the configuration file used during initialization (startup).

protocol

Destination for copying. See Table A-1 for protocol keyword options.

hostname

Hostname of destination.

location

Location of destination.

logs

The system log files.

all

Copies all Cisco ISE log files from the system to another location. All logs are packaged as iselogs.tar.gz and transferred to the specified directory on the remote host.

filename

Allows you to copy a single Cisco ISE log file and transfer it to the specified directory on the remote host, with its original name.

log_filename

Name of the Cisco ISE log file, as displayed by the show logs command (up to 255 characters).

mgmt

Copies the Cisco ISE management debug logs and Tomcat logs from the system, bundles them as mgmtlogs.tar.gz, and transfers them to the specified directory on the remote host.

runtime

Copies the Cisco ISE runtime debug logs from the system, bundles them as runtimelogs.tar.gz, and transfers them to the specified directory on the remote host.

 
Command Default

No default behavior or values.

 
Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

The fundamental function of the copy command allows you to copy a file (such as a system image or configuration file) from one location to another location. The source and destination for the file specified uses the Cisco ISE file system, through which you can specify any supported local or remote file location. The file system being used (a local memory source or a remote system) dictates the syntax used in the command.

You can enter all necessary source and destination information and the username and password to use; or, you can enter the copy command and have the server prompt you for any missing information.


Timesaver Aliases reduce the amount of typing that you need to do. For example, type copy run and press the Tab key start and press the Tab key, which is the abbreviated form of the copy running-config startup-config command).


The entire copying process might take several minutes and differs from protocol to protocol and from network to network.

Use the filename relative to the directory for file transfers.

Possible errors are standard File Transfer protocol (FTP) or Secure Copy (SCP) error messages.

Usage Guidelines

The Cisco ADE OS supports public key authentication with out the password for SSH access to administrators and user identities.

Use the crypto key generate rsa command to generate a new public/private key pair with a 2048-bit length for the current user. The key attributes are fixed, and supports RSA key types. If the key pair already exists, you will be prompted to permit an over-write before continuing with a passphrase. If you provide the passphrase, you will be prompted for the passphrase whenever you access the public/private key. If the passphrase is empty, no subsequent prompts for the passphrase occurs.

Examples

Example 1

ise/admin# crypto key generate rsa
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:

  • To list all commands available for a particular command mode, enter a question mark (?) at the system prompt.
  • To obtain a list of commands that begin with a particular character string, enter the abbreviated command entry immediately followed by ?. This form of help is called word help because it lists only the keywords or arguments that begin with the abbreviation that you entered.
  • To list the keywords and arguments associated with a command, enter ? in place of a keyword or argument on the command line. This form of help is called command syntax help, because it lists the keywords or arguments that apply based on the command, keywords, and arguments that you enter.

Examples

ise/admin# help
Help may be requested at any point in a command by entering
a question mark '?'. If nothing matches, the help list will
be empty and you must backup until entering a '?' shows the
available options.
Two styles of help are provided:
1. Full help is available when you are ready to enter a
command argument (e.g. 'show?') and describes each possible
argument.
2. Partial help is provided when an abbreviated argument is entered
and you want to know what arguments match the input
(e.g. 'show pr?'.)

Usage Guidelines

You can use the pep command only from the Inline Posture node.

Use the pep certificate command options to configure certificate authority (CA) and server certificates for an Inline Posture node. Any certificate change in the trust store results in an Inline Posture application restart. To view the certificates list in the trust store, use the show pep certificate certauthority command.

Use the pep set command options to log Inline Posture node information.

Examples

Example 1

The following command adds a certificate authority (CA) certificate to the trust store of an Inline Posture node. The certificate file needs to be present in the local disk repository of the Inline Posture node. Create a local disk repository for copying certificate and server private key files into the Inline Posture node, so that the add command can use those files. Use the copy command to download certificate and key files into the local disk repository.

Use the show pep certificate certauthority command to view the certificates list in the trust store. You can see the CA certificate added to the trust store with its alias name.


Note Use the show pep certificate certauthority command to check whether a CA certificate is already present in the trust store. If you import the same certificate (by using the add command) that is already present in the trust store, the certificate may be unusable when you use a different alias name for that certificate at the prompt, and the Inline Posture node may not be accessible after restart. Either you use the same alias name when you import the same certificate, or delete the certificate from the trust store and then import with a different alias name for that certificate.


isepep/admin# pep certificate certauthority add
CA Certificate change will result in application restart. Proceed? (y/n): y
Enter the name of the certificate to be added (.pem/.crt): ise70ciscocom4f061e00d0afb.pem

The following command exports the server certificate and private key into a single file in a pkcs#12 format and named as <ipep-hostname>.pfx. This file will be placed under the local disk repository of the Inline Posture Node. To export the private key with the server certificate, the export command prompts you to enter a password for encrypting the private key, which is used for importing the certificate and the private key back in to the Inline Posture Node certificate store.

isepep/admin# pep certificate server export pkcs12
Enter password for PKCS12 file:
Re-enter password:
 
***** ISE IPEP Server certificate and private key are exported in pkcs#12 format to local disk repository as isepep.pfx
***** This file is encrypted by a password you supplied. You will need it to import this package into a cert store
***** CAUTION: PRIVATE KEY in the file isepep.pfx. Observe extreme precaution handling it.

To diagnose the basic IPv6 network connectivity to a remote system, use the ping6 command in EXEC mode. This is similar to the IPv4 ping command.

ping6 { ip-address } [ GigabitEthernet { 0-3 }][ packetsize { packetsize }] [ pingcount { pingcount }]

 
Syntax Description

ip-address

IP address of the system to ping. Supports up to 64 alphanumeric characters.

GigabitEthernet

(Optional). Ethernet interface.

0-3

Select an Ethernet interface.

packetsize

(Optional). Size of the ping packet.

packetsize

Specify the size of the ping packet; the value can be between 0 and 65507.

pingcount

(Optional). Number of ping echo requests.

pingcount

Specify the number of ping echo requests; the value can be between 1 and 10.

 
Command Default

No default behavior or values.

 
Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

The ping6 command sends an echo request packet to an address, and then waits for a reply. The ping output can help you evaluate path-to-host reliability, delays over the path, and whether or not you can reach a host.

The ping6 command is similar to the existing ping command. The ping6 command does not support the IPv4 packet fragmentation ( df , as described in the ping command) options, but it allows an optional specification of an interface. The interface option is primarily useful for pinning with link-local addresses that are interface-specific addresses. The packetsize and pingcount options work the same way as they do with the ping command.

restore

To restore a previous backup of the system, use the restore command in EXEC mode. A restore operation restores data related to the Cisco ISE and the Cisco ADE OS.

Use the following command to restore data related to the Cisco ISE application and Cisco ADE OS:

restore [{ filename } repository { repository-name } encryption-key hash | plain { encryption-key-name }]

restore [{ filename } repository { repository-name } encryption-key hash | plain { encryption-key-name } include-adeos ]

 
Syntax Description

filename

Name of the backed-up file that resides in the repository. Supports up to 120 alphanumeric characters.

Note You must add the .tar.gpg extension after the filename (for example, myfile.tar.gpg).

repository

The repository command.

repository-name

Name of the repository from which you want to restore the backup. Supports up to 120 characters.

encryption-key

(Optional). Specifies user-defined encryption key to restore backup.

hash

Hashed encryption key for restoring backup. Specifies an encrypted (hashed) encryption key that follows. Supports up to 40 characters.

IPv4 address of the remote system. Supports up to 64 alphanumeric characters.

hostname

Hostname of the remote system. Supports up to 64 alphanumeric characters.

username

Username of the user logging in through SSH.

port

(Optional). Indicates the port number of the remote host.

port number

The valid range of ports is from 0 to 65,535. The default port is 22.

version

(Optional). Indicates the version number.

Command Modes

EXEC

 
Usage Guidelines

If you see bad udp cksum warnings in the tech dumptcp output, it may not be a cause for concern. The tech dumptcp command examines outgoing packets before they exit through the Ethernet microprocessor. Most modern Ethernet chips calculate checksums on outgoing packets, and so the operating system software stack does not. Hence, it is normal to see outgoing packets declared as bad udp cksum.

Examples

Example 1

ise/admin# tech dumptcp 0 count 2
Invoking tcpdump. Press Control-C to interrupt.
tcpdump: listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
2 packets captured

Usage Guidelines

In the show interface GigabitEthernet 0 output, you can find that the interface has three IPv6 addresses. The first internet address (starting with 3ffe) is the result of using stateless autoconfiguration. For this to work, you need to have IPv6 route advertisement enabled on that subnet. The next address (starting with fe80) is a link local address that does not have any scope outside the host. You always see a link local address regardless of the IPv6 autoconfiguration or DHCPv6 configuration. The last address (starting with 2001) is the result obtained from a IPv6 DHCP server.

Note Several more time zones are available to you. Enter show timezones and a list of all time zones available appears in the Cisco ISE server. Choose the most appropriate one for your time zone.



Warning Changing the time zone on a Cisco ISE appliance after installation causes the Cisco ISE application on that node to be unusable. However, the preferred time zone (default UTC) can be configured during the installation when the initial setup wizard prompts you for the time zone.


For more information on how changing time zone impacts different Cisco ISE nodes types of your deployment and the steps to recover from the impact, see the “Standalone or Primary ISE Node” section and “Secondary ISE Node” section.

Standalone or Primary ISE Node

Changing the time zone after installation is not supported on a Standalone or Primary ISE node.

If you inadvertently change the time zone, do the following:

  • Revert to the time zone back. (the time zone before it changed).
  • Run the application reset-config ise command from the CLI of that node.
  • Restore from the last known good backup before the time zone change on that node.

Secondary ISE Node

Changing the time zone on a secondary node renders it unusable on your deployment.

If you want to change the time zone on the secondary node to keep it to be the same as the primary node, do the following:

  • Deregister the secondary node.
  • Correct the time zone to be the same as the primary node.
  • Run the application reset-config ise command from the CLI of that node.
  • Reregister the node as a secondary node to the primary node.

Examples

ise/admin(config)# clock timezone PST8PDT
% On ISE distributed deployments, it is recommended all nodes be
% configured with the same time zone.
Continue with time zone change? Y/N [N]: y
ise/admin(config)# exit

Related Commands

Command
Description

show interface

Displays information about the system interfaces.

ip address (interface configuration mode)

Sets the IP address and netmask for the interface.

shutdown (interface configuration mode)

Shuts down the interface (see “shutdown” section).

ipv6 address autoconfig

To enable IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration, use the interface GigabitEthernet 0 command in configuration mode. This command does not have a no form.

IPv6 address autoconfiguration is enabled by default in Linux. Cisco ADE 2.0 shows the IPv6 address autoconfiguration in the running configuration for any interface that is enabled.

interface GigabitEthernet { 0 | 1| 2 | 3 }

 
Syntax Description

GigabitEthernet

Configures the Gigabit Ethernet interface.

0 - 3

Number of the Gigabit Ethernet port to configure.

 
Command Default

No default behavior or values.

 
Command Modes

Interface configuration (config-GigabitEthernet)#

 
Usage Guidelines

IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration has the security downfall of having predictable IP addresses. This downfall is resolved with privacy extensions. You can verify that the privacy extensions feature is enabled using the show command.

Example 1

ise/admin# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
ise/admin(config)# interface GigabitEthernet 0
ise/admin(config)# (config-GigabitEthernet)# ipv6 address autoconfig
ise/admin(config)# (config-GigabitEthernet)# end
ise/admin#

 

When IPv6 autoconfiguration is enabled, the running configuration shows the interface settings similar to the following:

!
interface GigabitEthernet 0
ip address 172.23.90.116 255.255.255.0
ipv6 address autoconfig
!

You can use the show interface GigabitEthernet 0 command to display the interface settings. In example 2, you can see that the interface has three IPv6 addresses. The first address (starting with 3ffe) is obtained using the stateless autoconfiguration. For the stateless autoconfiguration to work, you must have IPv6 route advertisement enabled on that subnet. The next address (starting with fe80) is a link-local address that does not have any scope outside the host. You will always see a link local address regardless of the IPv6 autoconfiguration or DHCPv6 configuration. The last address (starting with 2001) is obtained from a IPv6 DHCP server.

Example 2

ise/admin# show interface GigabitEthernet 0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:AF:DA:05
inet addr:172.23.90.116 Bcast:172.23.90.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

ise/admin#

The following RFC provides the IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration privacy extensions:

http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3041.txt

To verify that the privacy extensions feature is enabled, you can use the show interface GigabitEthernet 0 command. You can see two autoconfiguration addresses: one address is without the privacy extensions, and the other is with the privacy extensions.

In the example 3 below, the MAC is 3ffe:302:11:2:20c:29ff:feaf:da05/64 and the non-RFC3041 address contains the MAC, and the privacy-extension address is 302:11:2:9d65:e608:59a9:d4b9/64.

The output appears similar to the following:

Example 3

ise/admin# show interface GigabitEthernet 0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:AF:DA:05
inet addr:172.23.90.116 Bcast:172.23.90.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Usage Guidelines

Use this ntp server command with a trusted key if you want to allow the system to synchronize with a specified server.

The key is optional, but it is required for NTP authentication. Define this key in the ntp authentication-key command first and add this key to the ntp trusted-key command before you can add it to the ntp server command.

The show ntp command displays the status of synchronization. If none of the configured NTP servers are reachable or not authenticated (if NTP authentication is configured), then this command displays synchronization to local with the least stratum. If an NTP server is not reachable or is not properly authenticated, then its reach as per this command statistics will be 0.

To define an NTP server configuration and authentication in the Cisco ISE Admin portal, see the System Time and NTP Server Settings section in the Cisco Identity Services Engine User Guide, Release 1.2.


Note This command gives conflicting information during the synchronization process. The synchronization process can take up to 20 minutes to complete.

However, if you have configured the second interface on the appliance with a different IP and have not shut down that interface, you can access the appliance through that second interface.

To shut down an interface, you can also modify the ifcfg-eth[0,1] file, which is located at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, using the ONBOOT parameter:

  • Disable an interface: set ONBOOT="no”
  • Enable an interface: set ONBOOT="yes"

You can also use the no shutdown command to enable an interface.

Usage Guidelines

Cisco ISE sends a 'coldStart(0)' trap when the appliance boots up (reloads), if SNMP is already configured. Cisco ISE uses the Net-SNMP client that sends a 'coldStart(0)' trap when it first starts up, and an enterprise-specific trap 'nsNotifyShutdown' when it stops. It generates an enterprise-specific trap 'nsNotifyRestart' (rather than the standard 'coldStart(0)' or 'warmStart(1)' traps) typically after you reconfigure SNMP using the snmp-server host command.

Examples

ise/admin(config)# snmp-server host ise1 version 2c public
