set [ip|ip6] [static] <address/cidr> <gateway> <dns1>[,<dns2>[,...]

set {ip|ip6} route {add|remove} address/cidr gateway

set ntp {disable|[enable] <server1>[,<server2>[,...]}

set hostname <hostname>

set domain <domain>

set fqdn <hostname> <domain>

set/get/show searchdomains [<domain1>[,<domain2>[,...]]]

set/get/show nameservers [<dns1>[,<dns2>[,...]]]

show backup [<absolute pathname of backup file>]

The following table describes the arguments for the fmctl command:

Argument

Description

configuration [backup|restore]

Backs up and restores the configurations such as management interface, hostname, domain, IP, search domains, and NTP.

For example, use the following command to back up the system configurations:

fmctl configuration backup <absolute path name of backup file>

Use the following command to restore the system configurations from the backup:

fmctl configuration restore <absolute path name of backup file>

image fetch <download URI> [<filename>]

Retrieves an image file from a remote host. Use HTTP(S), FTP, TFTP, or SCP to retrieve the file. The format for the download URL is as follows:

[protocol]://username[:password]@hostname:/path/filename

For example, the following command retrieves the image file named myimage from the FTP server at 192.168.1.10 using the robh account with the xray password:

fmctl image fetch ftp://robh:xray@192.168.1.10/myimage

You can also use the <filename> argument to give the retrieved file a new name on GigaVUE-FM. For example, the following command retrieves myimage and names it newconfig:

fmctl image fetch scp://bbochy:catch1@192.168.1.75:/myconfig newconfig

Note:  You cannot retrieve a file with the same name as an existing configuration file.

image list

Provides the list of image file names available in GigaVUE-FM.

For example:

fmctl image list

image install <filename> [next|location {1|2}]

Installs the image file.

For example, use the following command to install the image file on the next partition:

fmctl image install gigamon-gigavue-fm-5.8.00-160194-trial.img next

Use the following command to install the image file on the specified partition:

fmctl image install gigamon-gigavue-fm-5.8.00-160194-trial.img location 1

Note:  Ensure that your current partition is not the same as the partition you specified for installation. Else, an error is displayed.

 

image boot [next|location {1|2}]

Boots the image file on the specified partition. Ensure that the partition has the installed image file.

For example, use the following command to boot the image file on the next partition:

fmctl image boot next

Use the folloaing command to boot the image file on the specified partition:

fmctl image boot location 1

Note:  GigaVUE-FM reboots immediately.

image delete [force] <filename>

Deletes the named image file.

For example:

fmctl image delete myimage

image {move|rename} <old filename> <new filename>

Moves or renames the specified image file. For example, the following command renames myimage as newimage:

fmctl image rename myimage newimage

image show

Displays the last boot partition.

For example:

fmctl image show

jump-start

Runs the configuration wizard for the initial setup of GigaVUE‑FM. Refer to Perform Initial Configuration.

Note:  When you change the IP address of the GigaVUE‑FM instance using the jump-start configuration, the internal database and the in-memory caches of the GigaVUE‑FM instance are not updated. The Database continues to have the IP address of the old GigaVUE‑FM, and the image upgrade using the internal server option does not work. To fix this, you must restart the GigaVUE-FM instance after upgrade.

logging [<fqdn>[:<port>]] [facility <facility>] [priority <priority>] [udp|tcp]

Configures the logging server for receiving events and audit logs in the remote server.

For example:

fmctl logging 1.2.3.4:9514 facility * priority debug tcp

no logging <fqdn>[:<port>]

Removes the logging server configuration.

For example:

fmctl no logging 1.2.3.4:9514

reset factory halt

Resets the GigaVUE-FM instance to the default configuration and shuts down the system.

For example:

fmctl reset factory halt

set UI admin password <new password>

Configures a new admin password for the GigaVUE-FM UI only.

For information on setting the GigaVUE-FM password, refer to Setting the GigaVUE-FM Admin Password .

{get|show} interface [{mgmt|management}]

Displays the management interface configured for the GigaVUE-FMinstance.

For example:

fmctl get|show interface management

set interface {mgmt|management} <interface name>

Configures the management interface for the GigaVUE‑FM instance, which has more than one ethernet interface.

For example:

fmctl set interface management eth1

Note:  You cannot use the --interface syntax with the set interface management argument.

--interface <interface name>

Allows various configurations that can be set for the management interface. This is an optional argument.

For example, use the following command to ensure that eth1 management interface uses DHCP:

fmctl --interface eth1 set ip dhcp

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set mapping <fqdn> <IP address>

Maps the FQDN with the IP address of GigaVUE-FM.

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set mapping fm 10.10.10.1

Use the following command to remove the mapping:

fmctl --interface eth1 set mapping fm

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] {get|show} {ip|ntp|hostname|domain|fqdn}

Use to either fetch or display the IP address, NTP configurations, host name, domain name, or FQDN .

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 get {ip|ntp|hostname|domain|fqdn}

fmctl --help show {ip|ntp|hostname|domain|fqdn}

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set [ip|ip6] dhcp

Configures the management interface to use DHCP.

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set ip dhcp

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set [ip|ip6] [static] <address/cidr> <gateway> <dns1>[,<dns2>[,...]

Configures the static IP address and gateway on the management interface. You can also choose to configure DNS.

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set ip static 10.115.46.72/21 10.115.40.1 10.10.1.20

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set {ip|ip6} route {add|remove} address/cidr gateway

Adds or removes the IP address and gateway for the management interface.

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set ntp {disable|[enable] <server1>[,<server2>[,...]}

Use to enable or disable NTP for synchronization of the system's clock.

For example, the following command disables NTP:

fmctl --interface eth1 set ntp disable

You choose to enable NTP and add NTP servers. For example, the following command enables NTP and adds a NTP server:

fmctl --interface eth1 set ntp enable 192.168.1.10

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set hostname <hostname>

Configures the hostname.

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set hostname myfm

Note:  Ensure that you log out and re-login to the GigaVUE-FM to view the changes.

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set domain <domain>

Configures the domain for GigaVUE-FM.

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set domain gigamon.com

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set fqdn <hostname> <domain>

Configures the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for the current GigaVUE-FM.

fmctl --interface eth1 set fqdn myfm gigamon.com

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set/get/show searchdomains [<domain1>[,<domain2>[,...]]]

Displays a list of domains for the current GigaVUE-FM

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set searchdomains

fmctl --help get | show searchdomains

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] set/get/show nameservers [<dns1>[,<dns2>[,...]]]

Displays a list of name servers for the current GigaVUE-FM

For example:

fmctl --interface eth1 set nameservers

fmctl --help get | show nameservers

[options{--help|--interface <interface name>}] show backup

Displays the configurations that were backed up.

For example:

fmctl --help show backup <absolute path name of backup file>

 

Note:  To include special characters in the fmctl command line, enclose the string containing the special characters within single quotes. For example, to include the bang (!) special character in a password string, you must enclose the password string within single quotes, as shown in the following example:

fmctl set UI admin password 'admin!!'
