Configuring Report Restrictions

The LEM appliance allows unrestricted access to LEM Reports by default. To run LEM Reports, either modify this restriction to allow specific computers to use LEM Reports, or remove the restriction entirely.

LEM Reports restriction access (port 9001) can be restricted in the same way that SSH access (port 32022) and console access (port 8443/8080) can be restricted to the LEM. The LEM Reports can also be configured with a user/password, similar to SSH and console access.

Configure LEM manager to allow specific computers to run LEM Reports

  1. Connect to your LEM virtual appliance using the vSphere console view or an SSH client such as PuTTY.
  2. At the cmc> prompt, enter service.
  3. At the cmc::scm# prompt, enter restrictreports.
  4. When prompted, press Enter.
  5. Enter the IP addresses of the computers you want to allow to run LEM Reports, separated by spaces.

    Ensure the list you provide is complete. Your entry will override any previous entries.

  6. Enter y to confirm your entry.
  7. Enter exit to return to the cmc> prompt.
  8. Enter exit to log out of your LEM virtual appliance.

Remove all LEM reports restrictions

  1. Connect to your LEM virtual appliance using the vSphere console view or an SSH client such as PuTTY.
  2. At the cmc> prompt, enter service.
  3. At the cmc::scm# prompt, enter unrestrictreports.
  4. When prompted, press Enter.

    Unrestricting LEM Reports will make the LEM database accessible on any computer on your network running LEM Reports.

  5. Enter exit to return to the cmc> prompt.
  6. Enter exit to log out of your LEM virtual appliance.
