System Properties

Updated July 26, 2022. Written for LMS Version 6.3.


The Local Manager supports arbitrary name/value properties that alter the behavior of certain features. Properties can be set using the config system properties command on the CLI or on the Properties page under Local Manager Summary on the Control Center.

You can view configured properties with the show system properties command.

[admin@UplogixLM]# show system properties
installDate 02/13/2020
rack 7b
sysContact.0 John Smith
sysLocation.0 Row12Rack8Slot4


Reports generated from the Uplogix Control Center can include data taken from properties.

Some examples:

[admin@UplogixLM]# config system properties
[config properties]# installDate 02/13/2020
[config properties]# rack 7b
[config properties]# sea Angry
[config properties]# exit


If you have SNMP enabled on the LM, you can use properties to set the System Contact and System Location:

[admin@UplogixLM]# config system properties
[config properties]# sysContact.0 John Smith
[config properties]# sysLocation.0 Row12Rack8Slot4
[config properties]# exit
