Using the Node Management utility, you can shut down or enable interfaces, and override configured EnergyWise power settings remotely.

To remotely manage interfaces, the parent node must have not only Community String, but also Read/Write Community String set correctly. See Edit polling settings.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Locate the parent node of the interface, and expand the parent node.

    To find the node, use the filter and search tools above the nodes list.

    If the list of found devices is too long, select a property in the Group By drop-down list, and then select a group.

  4. Select the interfaces to manage.
  5. To shut down the interfaces, click More Actions > Shut Down, and click OK to confirm.
  6. To enable the interfaces, click More Actions > Enable.
  7. If the selected interface is EnergyWise-enabled, you can override the current power level setting. Click More Actions > Override Power Level, set the power level, and click OK.

    Remote overrides are temporary and will be reset in accordance with your configured EnergyWise policy for the selected interface. See Temporarily reset the current power level of a monitored EnergyWise interface.
