You can manage your LEM appliance using the virtual console in your hypervisor client or a Secure Shell (SSH) client (such as PuTTY).

Using the SSH client and CMC commands, you can:

  • Upgrade your LEM Manager software
  • Deploy new connector infrastructure to the managers and agents
  • Reboot or shut down the network appliance
  • Configure trusted reporting hosts
  • Configure supplemental services on the manager appliance
  • Control your nDepth appliances
  • Many apply connector updates.

To establish a secure connection to your LEM appliance using PuTTY: 

  1. Start a PuTTY session.
  2. Click Session.
  3. In the Host Name field, enter the IP address or hostname of your LEM appliance.
  4. In the Port field, enter 32022 or 22.
  5. Click Open.
  6. In the login field, enter cmc, and then press Enter.
  7. In the password field, enter your password, and then press Enter.

    The default password is password.

    The session displays on your screen, as shown below.


  8. Enter and execute the appropriate command to manage your appliance.

    Click Exit to exit the appliance.

See "CMC Commands" in the Log & Event Manager User Guide for a list of supported commands.

See your hypervisor documentation for information about using the virtual console.
