Configuring the Authentication Method and Sequence
You can configure VM authentication through the following services:
- NMS server
- Network based VMMAP file
- Local database
The default VM authentication configuration uses all three methods in the following sequence: NMS server (first choice), network based VMMAP file (second choice), and finally, local database. If a service is not available, the switch tries the next authentication service in the sequence.
To configure one or more authentication methods and a preferred sequence, use the following command:configure vm-tracking authentication database-order [[nms] | [vm-map] | [local] | [nms local] | [local nms] | [nms vm-map] | [vm‑maplocal] | [local vm-map] | [nms vm-map local] | [localnmsvm-map]]
