This chapter includes the following sections:

Remote Access Policies

Cisco UCS Central supports global remote access policies defining the interfaces monitoring policy, displaying SSH configuration status, and providing policy settings for HTTP, Telnet, web session limits and CIM XML.

Configuring HTTP

Configuring an HTTP Remote Access Policy

Before You Begin

Before configuring an HTTP remote access policy under a domain group, this policy must first be created. Policies under the Domain Groups root were already created by the system and ready to configure.

Procedure
    Step 1   On the menu bar, click Operations Management.
    Step 2   In the Navigation pane, expand Domain Groups > Domain Group root.
    Step 3   Under the Domain Groups root node, do one of the following choices:
    • To configure the policy in the domain group root, click Operational Policies.
    • To configure the policy in a specific domain group, expand the node for that domain group and click Operational Policies.
    Step 4   In the Navigation pane, click Operational Policies.
    Step 5   In the Work pane, click Remote Access.
    Step 6   In the Work pane, click the HTTP tab.
    Step 7   In the Actions area, click Create and complete all applicable fields.

    For Operational Policies under the Domain Group root node, it is not necessary to click Create to complete all applicable fields.

    Name Description

    Create button

    Creates an instance of the policy that will be used by all Cisco UCS domains included in the selected domain group.

    Import button

    Allows you to import the policy from one of the Cisco UCS domains registered with Cisco UCS Central.

    Delete button

    Deletes the instance of the policy defined for the selected domain group.

    After you delete the policy, it remains greyed-out until you click Save. When you do so, Cisco UCS Central deletes the policy and any configuration data you may have specified. While you can create a new instance of the policy later, you cannot restore the configuration data from a deleted instance.

    To cancel the delete request, click Reset.

    Admin State field

    Whether Cisco UCS Central allows HTTP or HTTPS communication with the Cisco UCS domains included in the Cisco UCS Central domain group. This can be one fo the following:

    • disabledCisco UCS Central does not allow communication with any included Cisco UCS domain via HTTP or HTTPS.
    • enabledCisco UCS Central allows communication over HTTP if Redirect HTTP to HTTPS is set to disabled. All HTTP data is exchanged in clear text mode. If Redirect HTTP to HTTPS is set to enabled, Cisco UCS Central requires HTTPS communication for all included Cisco UCS domains.

    Port field

    The port to use for HTTP or HTTPS connections.

    Enter an integer between 1 and 65535. The default port is 80.

    Redirect HTTP to HTTPS

    If enabled, all attempts to communicate via HTTP are redirected to the equivalent HTTPS address.

    This option effectively disables HTTP access to all included Cisco UCS domains.

    Step 8   Click Save.

    What to Do Next

    Optionally, configure the following remote access policies:

    • Telnet
    • Web Session Limits
    • CIM XML
    • Interfaces Monitoring Policy
    • SSH Configuration

    Deleting an HTTP Remote Access Policy

    An HTTP remote access policy is deleted from a domain group under the domain group root. HTTP remote access policies under the domain groups root cannot be deleted.

    Procedure
      Step 1   On the menu bar, click Operations Management.
      Step 2   In the Navigation pane, expand Domain Groups > Domain Group root.
      Step 3   Expand the node for a domain group containing the policy to delete.
      Step 4   In the Navigation pane, click Operational Policies.
      Step 5   In the Work pane, click Remote Access.
      Step 6   In the Work pane, click the HTTP tab.
      Step 7   In the Actions area, click Delete.

      A policy that is deleted will inherit its settings from its domain group's parent until it is reconfigured.

      Step 8   If Cisco UCS Central GUI displays a confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
      Step 9   Click Save.

      Configuring Telnet

      Configuring a Telnet Remote Access Policy

      Before You Begin

                    Procedure
                      Step 1   On the menu bar, click Operations Management.
                      Step 2   In the Navigation pane, expand Domain Groups > Domain Group root.
                      Step 3   Expand the node for a domain group containing the policy to delete.
                      Step 4   In the Navigation pane, click Operational Policies.
                      Step 5   In the Work pane, click Remote Access.
                      Step 6   In the Work pane, click the Interfaces Monitoring tab.
                      Step 7   In the Actions area, click Delete.

                      A policy that is deleted will inherit its settings from its domain group's parent until it is reconfigured.

                      Step 8   If Cisco UCS Central GUI displays a confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
                      Step 9   Click Save.

                      SNMP Policies

                      Cisco UCS Central supports global SNMP policies enabling or disabling, defining SNMP traps and SNMP users (with regular and privacy passwords, authentication types of md5 or sha, and option for AES-128). Registered Cisco UCS domains choosing to define security policies globally within that client's policy resolution control will defer all security policies to its registration with Cisco UCS Central.

                      Configuring an SNMP Policy

                      Before You Begin

                      Before configuring a SNMP policy under a domain group, this policy must first be created. Policies under the Domain Groups root were already created by the system and ready to configure.

                      Procedure
                        Step 1   On the menu bar, click Operations Management.
                        Step 2   In the Navigation pane, expand Domain Groups > Domain Group root.
                        Step 3   Under the Domain Groups root node, do one of the following choices:
                        • To configure the policy in the domain group root, click Operational Policies.
                        • To configure the policy in a specific domain group, expand the node for that domain group and click Operational Policies.
                        Step 4   In the Navigation pane, click Operational Policies.
                        Step 5   In the Work pane, click SNMP.
                        Step 6   In the Actions area, click Create and complete all applicable fields.

                        For Operational Policies under the Domain Group root node, it is not necessary to click Create to complete all applicable fields.

                        1. In the Actions area, click the Enabled state and complete the following:

                          The default state is Disabled with no fields displayed. Leaving the default state disables the SNMP policy.

                          Name Description

                          Create button

                          Creates an instance of the policy that will be used by all Cisco UCS domains included in the selected domain group.

                          Import button

                          Allows you to import the policy from one of the Cisco UCS domains registered with Cisco UCS Central.

                          Delete button

                          Deletes the instance of the policy defined for the selected domain group.

                          After you delete the policy, it remains greyed-out until you click Save. When you do so, Cisco UCS Central deletes the policy and any configuration data you may have specified. While you can create a new instance of the policy later, you cannot restore the configuration data from a deleted instance.

                          To cancel the delete request, click Reset.

                          Admin State field

                          If enabled, Cisco UCS uses SNMP in all Cisco UCS domains included in the Cisco UCS Central domain group and Cisco UCS Central GUI displays the rest of the fields in this area.

                          You should only enable SNMP if all included Cisco UCS domains are integrated with an SNMP server.

                        Deleting an SNMP Policy

                        A SNMP policy is deleted from a domain group under the domain group root. SNMP policies under the domain groups root cannot be deleted.

                        Deleting an SNMP policy will remove all SNMP trap and SNMP User settings within that policy.

                        Procedure
                          Step 1   On the menu bar, click Operations Management.
