Device Access

NVIDIA UFM-SDN Appliance User Manual v4.14.2

You can configure default access parameters for remote administration via the following protocols:

  • Switch/Server SSH – allows you to define the SSH parameters to open an SSH session on your device

  • IPMI – allows you to set the IPMI parameters to open an IPMI session on your device for remote power control

  • HTTP – allows you to define the HTTP parameters to open an HTTP session on your device

    Default credentials are applicable to all switches and servers in the fabric.


    The default SSH (CLI) switch credentials match the Grid Director series switch. To change the credentials for IS5030/IS5035 edit the [SSH_Switch] section in the gv.cfg file.

Define access parameters for the remote user as described in the following table.
