request controller-upload serial-file

request controller-upload serial-file—Upload the controller certificate serial number file to the local device (on vManage NMSs only). The local device retains these serial numbers even after you reboot it.

Command Syntax

request controller-upload serial-file filename [vpn vpn-id]


Name of Certificate File
Install the specified file containing the list of serial numbers for the vManage NMSs and vSmart controllers in the overlay network. The file can be in a your home directory on the local device, or it can be on a remote device reachable through FTP, HTTP, SCP, or TFTP. If you are using SCP, you are prompted for the directory name and filename. No file path name is provided.
Specific VPN
vpn vpn-id
VPN in which the certificate file is located. When you include this option, one of the interfaces in the specified VPN is used to retrieve the file. The interfaces on a vSmart controller are only in VPN 0, the VPN reserved for the control plane, so you can omit this option because vSmart images are always retrieved from VPN 0.

Output Fields

The output fields are self-explanatory.

Release Information

Command introduced in Viptela Software Release 15.4, to replace the request vsmart-upload serial-file command.
