The master hubs in the series support a powerful configuration file which
allows many of the hub stack's configuration parameters to be stored on a
centralized server. When the master hub starts up, it can be configured to
read its configuration file from the server using the TFTP protocol. This can
make it easier to manage a large number of hub stacks, since all of the
configuration parameters for all of the hubs can be managed in a single place.
The configuration file is a text file, usually stored on the server with a
extension. It can be up to 10 kilobytes long. Lines beginning with
considered comments which are ignored by the hub. All other lines are
commands, which are interpreted by the master hub.
The configuration file commands accepted by the hub are:
Takes string as the System Name, corresponding to the SNMP MIB II
hub for administrative purposes. The hub's fully qualified domain name
is often used, provided a name has been assigned. The string can be up to
64 characters long.
Takes string as the System Contact, corresponding to the SNMP MIB II
