Configuring the REST API Plug-in

Configuring the REST API Plug-in

This chapter contains the following sections:

Configuring the REST API Plug-in

You can configure the REST API plug-in and dynamically load content.


    1.    switch (config)# plugin unload plugin_name

    2.    switch (config)# plugin load location

    3.    switch (config)# show plugin status

      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 switch (config)# plugin unload plugin_name

    Unloads the REST API plug-in completely from the system.


    After unloading the REST API plug-in, wait for at least 10 seconds before you proceed to the next step to load the REST API plug-in.


    When you unload the default REST API plug-in, the only way to reinstall the REST API plug-in is from the Cisco website and then load it on the Cisco Nexus 1000V switch.

    Step 2 switch (config)# plugin load location

    Loads the REST API plug-in.


    When the VSM is an HA pair, ensure the REST API plug-in image is available on both the supervisors. Copying the file to bootflash://sup-standby/ also copies the file to the standby VSM.

    Step 3 switch (config)# show plugin status

    Displays the status of all the plug-ins installed in the system.


    This example shows how to unload and load the REST API plug-in:

    switch(config)# plugin unload rest
    switch(config)#  plugin load bootflash:///rest_sup1sf.gbin

    This example shows how to display the status of the installed plug-in:

    switch(config) # show plugin status 
    Plugin-name                Version            Status
    -------------------------  -----------------  -----------------
