Exploring the main menu

After logging into the appliance, the main menu appears.

The appliance remains running for most operations, but could restart for some operations like, changing the IP address of the appliance, modifying the timezone, modifying the appliance type or repairing the database. You will receive an message before the appliance restarts.

Use the arrow keys to scroll through the list of menu items. To select a menu item, ensure that it is hightlighted then press Enter. Alternatively, you can select the number that corresponds to the highlighted menu item and press Enter.

To navigate to any of the menu controls at the bottom of the screen (for example, OK, Cancel and Exit), use the Tab key to move the cursor and then press Enter.

The console displays error messages when data is entered incorrectly. For example, if you enter an IP address incorrectly, the console responds with an error message.

When prompted, ensure that you save your changes each time you modify a setting. When changing the appliance type, you must save your changes in the Appliance Type Configuration screen. For more information, see Configuring the appliance type.

Network configuration

The Network Configuration menu and submenu options identify essential elements on your organizations network that the appliance requires to function correctly.

There are six different sections:

For more information, see these topics:

Configuring the control device

The configure control device options allow you to configure the network settings for the control device (eth0). From the Networking Options menu, select Control Device. The Configure Control Device menu displays with configuration options.

IP Address (required)

Assigns an IP address to the control device (eth0). This IP address will be used by end users to gain access to the appliance's web console. It is also the IP address that is used to open an SSH session with the appliance.

Netmask

Allows you to enter a subnet mask for the IP address.

Default Gateway (required)

Allows you to enter the IP address of your network's gateway.

Hostname

Allows you to enter a hostname for the appliance. Users can utilize the hostname, rather than the IP address, to access the web console provided the hostname is mapped to the IP address of the appliance in your Domain Name Server (DNS). Make sure you enter a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) such as agent5.quest.com.

Primary DNS

Allows you to enter the IP address of the primary Domain Name Server for your network.

Secondary DNS

Allows you to enter the IP address of the secondary Domain Name Server for your network.

Configuring the auxiliary device settings

From the Networking Options menu, select Auxiliary Device. The Configure Auxiliary Device menu displays with configuration options for setting the IP address, netmask, and broadcast address for the appliance’s auxiliary device (eth0).

IP Address

Assigns an IP address to the auxiliary device (eth1). This IP address must be on a different subnet than the IP address assigned for the control device (eth0). It must also match the subnet of the IP address assigned to the corresponding port on the Foglight Experience Viewer.

Netmask

Allows you to enter a subnet mask for the IP address.
