ns rpcNode

Sep 12, 2016

The following operations can be performed on "ns rpcNode":

set ns rpcNode

Sets the authentication attributes associated with peer system node. All system nodes use Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) to communicate.

Synopsys

set ns rpcNode <IPAddress> {-password } [-srcIP <ip_addr|ipv6_addr|*>] [-secure ( YES | NO )]

Arguments

IPAddress

IP address of the node. This has to be in the same subnet as the NSIP address.

password

Password to be used in authentication with the peer system node.

srcIP

Source IP address to be used to communicate with the peer system node. The default value is 0, which means that the appliance uses the NSIP address as the source IP address.

secure

State of the channel when talking to the node.

Possible values: YES, NO

Example

 Example-1: Failover configuration In a failover configuration define peer NS as:    add node 1 10.101.4.87 Set peer ha-unit's password as:    set ns rpcnode 10.101.4.87 -password testpass -secure yes  System will now use the configured password to authenticate with its failover unit.  Example-2: GSLB configuration In a GSLB configuration define peer NS GSLB site as:    add gslb site us_east_coast remote 206.123.3.4 Set peer GSLB-NS's password as:    set ns rpcnode 206.123.3.4 -password testrun  System will now use the configured password to authenticate with east-coast GSLB site.

unset ns rpcNode

Use this command to remove ns rpcNode settings.Refer to the set ns rpcNode command for meanings of the arguments.

Synopsys

unset ns rpcNode <IPAddress> [-password] [-srcIP] [-secure]

show ns rpcNode

Display a list of nodes currently communicating by using Remote Procedure Calls (RPC).

Synopsys

show ns rpcNode [<IPAddress>]

Arguments

IPAddress

IP address of the node.

Outputs

password

Password.

srcIP

The src ip used in communiction with the peer System node.

secure
