This command adds the N1 System Manager features to a server.
To benefit from some of the N1 System Management functionality, you must add features to the servers. The two types of features are base management and OS monitoring. The base management feature is required for basic OS monitoring, OS updates, and remote commands. The OS monitoring feature provides advanced OS monitoring, including support for threshold monitoring. When a feature is added, the feature is installed on the server, the specified agent credentials are set, and the feature becomes supported on the server. In the case of the OS monitoring feature, monitoring is also enabled if not already enabled. The Base Management Supported and OS Monitoring Supported fields in the show server output provide the current support status on a server's features.
There are some situations when you need to use the upgrade keyword to upgrade the existing features on a server. Refer to the N1 System Manager Discovery and Administration Guide for more information
Add the OS monitoring and base management features to a server:
add server server feature osmonitor agentip agentip agentssh agentssh [agentsnmp agentsnmp] [agentsnmpv3 agentsnmpv3]
Add the base management feature to a server:
add server server feature basemanagement agentip agentip agentssh agentssh
Upgrade a feature on a server:
add server server feature feature upgrade [agentip agentip agentssh agentssh]
agentip – Specify the IP address used for the management features on the server, including OS monitoring. The agentip is usually the IP address of the provisioning network interface on the server.
agentsnmp – Specify the SNMP credentials used for OS monitoring on the server. The agentsnmp format is a read community string. The default SNMP read community string is public.
agentsnmpv3 – Specify the SNMP Version 3 credentials used for OS monitoring on the server. The agentsnmpv3 format is a user name/password pair: snmpv3-username/snmpv3-password. You can type a question mark (?) if you do not want the password to display in the command line. Once you issue the command, you are prompted for the user name/password.
agentssh – Specify the SSH credentials used for the management features on the server, including OS monitoring. The SSH user must have root access on the server. The agentssh format is a user name/password pair for SSH credentials: ssh-username/ssh-password. You can type a question mark (?) if you do not want the password to display in the command line. Once you issue the command, you are prompted for the user name/password.
basemanagement – Add or upgrade the base management feature, which is required for OS update deployment and remote commands.
