This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS security commands that begin with S.

server

To add a server to a RADIUS or TACACS+ server group, use the server command. To delete a server from a server group, use the no form of this command.

server {ipv4-address | ipv6-address | hostname}

no server {ipv4-address | ipv6-address | hostname}

Syntax Description

ipv4-address

Server IPv4 address in the A.B.C.D format.

ipv6-address

Server IPv6 address in the X:X:X::X format.

hostname

Server name. The name is alphanumeric, case sensitive, and has a maximum of 256 characters.


Command Default

None

Command Modes

RADlUS server group configuration mode
TACACS+ server group configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

You can configure up to 64 servers in a server group.

Use the aaa group server radius command to enter RADIUS server group configuration mode or aaa group server tacacs+ command to enter TACACS+ server group configuration mode.

If the server is not found, use the radius-server host command or tacacs-server host command to configure the server.


Note You must use the feature tacacs+ command before you configure TACACS+.


Examples

This example shows how to add a server to a RADIUS server group:

switch(config)# aaa group server radius RadServer 
switch(config-radius)# server 192.168.1.1 
 
   

This example shows how to delete a server from a RADIUS server group:

switch(config)# aaa group server radius RadServer 
switch(config-radius)# no server 192.168.1.1 
 
   

This example shows how to add a server to a TACACS+ server group:

switch(config)# feature tacacs+

storm-control {broadcast | multicast | unicast} level percentage[.fraction]

no storm-control {broadcast | multicast | unicast} level

Syntax Description

Specifies the multicast traffic.

unicast

Specifies the unicast traffic.

level percentage

Specifies the percentage of the suppression level. The range is from 0 to 100 percent.

Command Default

All packets are passed.

Command Modes

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Enter the storm-control level command to enable traffic storm control on the interface, configure the traffic storm-control level, and apply the traffic storm-control level to all traffic storm-control modes that are enabled on the interface.

The period (.) is required when you enter the fractional-suppression level.

The suppression level is a percentage of the total bandwidth. A threshold value of 100 percent means that no limit is placed on traffic. A threshold value of 0 or 0.0 (fractional) percent means that all specified traffic is blocked on a port.

Use the show interfaces counters storm-control command to display the discard count.

Use one of the following methods to turn off suppression for the specified traffic type:

Set the level to 100 percent for the specified traffic type.

Use the no form of this command.

Examples

This example shows how to enable suppression of broadcast traffic and set the suppression threshold level:

switch(config-if)# storm-control broadcast level 30 
 
   

This example shows how to disable the suppression mode for multicast traffic:

switch(config-if)# no storm-control multicast level
