Managing Cisco SG Switch

The Cisco SG Switch can be automatically discovered by eG Enterprise. Therefore, administrators can either auto-discover the switch in their environment or manually add the switch.

To manage the Cisco SG Switches that are automatically discovered, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface.
  2. If the component is yet to be discovered, then, run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discovery).
  3. To manage an already discovered component, follow the menu sequence: Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage/Delete.
  4. Figure 1 and Figure 2 clearly illustrate the process of managing a Cisco SG Swtich.

To add the Cisco SG Switch manually to eG Enterprise, follow the steps below:

  1. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  2. Next, select Cisco SG Switch from the Component type drop-down and then click the Add New Component button.
  3. When Figure 3 appears, provide the Host IP/Name of the Cisco SG Switch that you want to manage.
