After you configure an FTP/TFTP server for a cluster, the members in the cluster access the FTP/TFTP
server configured through the management switch.
After you configure a log host for a cluster, all the log information of the members in the cluster will
be output to the configured log host in the following way:
Member switches send their log information to the management switch
The management switch converts the addresses of log information and sends them to the log
host.
After you configure an NM host for a cluster, the member switches in the cluster send their Trap
messages to the shared SNMP NM host through the management switch.
If the port of an access NM device—including FTP/TFTP server, NM host and log host—does not allow
the packets from the management VLAN to pass, the NM device cannot manage the devices in a cluster
through the management switch. You need to configure the VLAN interface of the access NM device
—including FTP/TFTP server, NM host and log host—as the NM interface on the management switch.
Follow these steps to configure the interaction for a cluster:
To do...
Enter system view
Enter cluster view
Configure the FTP server shared by
the cluster
Configure the TFTP server shared
by the cluster
Configure the log host shared by
the member switches in the cluster
Configure the SNMP NM host
shared by the cluster
Configure the NM interface of the
management switch
CAUTION:
To isolate management protocol packets of a cluster from packets outside the cluster, configure to prohibit
packets from the management VLAN from passing the ports that connect the management switch with the
devices outside the cluster and configure the NM interface for the management switch.

SNMP configuration synchronization function

Using the SNMP configuration synchronization function, you can perform SNMP-related configurations
on the management switch and synchronize them to the member switches on the whitelist. This operation
is equal to configuring multiple member switches at one time. It simplifies the configuration process.
Follow these steps to configure the SNMP configuration synchronization function:
Use the command...
system-view
cluster
ftp-server ip-address [ user-name
username password { simple |
cipher } password ]
tftp-server ip-address
logging-host ip-address
snmp-host ip-address
[ community-string read string1
write string2 ]
nm-interface vlan-interface
interface-name
120
