Device Settings

View and modify device configuration settings, including disabling and enabling the local web user interface. Save changed device settings, and optionally update the device immediately.

About Device Settings

In this window, you can view and configure Extreme Networks and Dell EMC devices that have connected to ExtremeCloud IQ. The settings you create here apply only to the device for which they are configured, and override any device settings created elsewhere (in the network policy, for example).

ExtremeCloud IQ allows you to modify switch templates at the device level. Settings made at this level (Manage > Devices > switch_name) apply only to the individual switch and override the template settings configured for the network policy in Configure > Network Policies. For Extreme Networks switches, once device-level settings are removed, the switch automatically reverts back to the original network policy and template configuration.

Configure or Modify Device Settings for Switches and VGVAs

To configure new settings or modify existing settings for a specific device, select the host name of the device in the Devices list. In the Device Details panel, enter the following information.

Configure Supplemental CLI

The Supplemental CLI tool allows you to update CLI commands to multiple devices simultaneously from a GUI page on ExtremeCloud IQ. You can save Supplemental CLI objects containing CLI commands in ExtremeCloud IQ. CLI commands can then be updated for devices automatically each time you update the network policy.

  • To use the Supplemental CLI tool, you must first enable it. Navigate to   admin_name > Global Settings > Administration > VHM Management, and then enable Supplemental CLI.

You can optionally configure Supplemental CLI objects and determine whether they are included or not included in a network policy. On the Device page, you have the option to keep the Supplemental CLI object in the network policy and append another Supplemental CLI object to the end of the running configuration list. Select the Supplemental CLI object from the list of previously saved Supplemental CLI objects, or select to add a new Supplemental CLI object (see "Add Supplemental CLI" for more configuration information).

Override Supplemental CLI in the network policy: Allow the network policy to override Supplemental CLI objects for the device.

Keep Supplemental CLI in the network policy and append below at end: Include the Supplemental CLI object in the network policy and append the selected CLI object from the list below. If you select a Supplemental CLI object from the list , or create a new one, it is appended to the end of configuration list, after the Supplemental CLI object in the network policy. If the [-No change-] check box is selected, only the Supplemental CLI included in the network policy is appended.

ACSP Logging

ACSP logging stores Extreme Channel Selection Protocol logs in the flash memory of an Extreme Networks AP device. This feature is used by Extreme Networks technical support to troubleshoot RF-related issues. ACSP logging is not reported to ExtremeCloud IQ.

After enabling global ExtremeCloud IQ ACSP logging (see "ACSP Logging"), you can enable ACSP logging for this network policy and for this AP device on this page. ACSP logging must be enabled for ExtremeCloud IQ before ACSP logging can be enabled for this network policy, and ACSP logging must be enabled for this network policy before ACSP logging can be enabled for this AP device.

  • ACSP logging is normally disabled. Do not enable ACSP logging unless directed to do so by Extreme Networks technical support.

Override ACSP Logging in the network policy: When ACSP logging is enabled for ExtremeCloud IQ, enable ACSP logging for this network policy. Default = disabled.

Enable ACSP Logging: When ACSP logging is enabled for this network policy, enable ACSP logging for this AP device. Default = disabled.
