configure vm-tracking authentication database-order

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]]


Configures the authentication database options and sequence for VM authentication.

Syntax Description

nms Specifies the configured Network Management System (NMS).
vm-map Specifies the configured VMMAP file.
local Specifies the configured local database.


nms vm-map local.

Usage Guidelines

The switch attempts VM authentication in the sequence specified. For example, in the default configuration, the switch attempts NMS authentication first, VMMAP authentication second, and local authentication third. If nms is specified, the switch always attempts NMS authentication before attempting VMMAP file authentication.


The following command configures the database authentication order:

# configure vm-tracking authentication database-order local nms vm-map
