The Uplogix Control Center is a single pane of glass to manage the entire Uplogix deployment. The UCC manages device inventory in a Parent/Child structure where children inherit properties from the parent unless explicitly denied. The UCC will recognize the heartbeat of an unconfigured LM and add it to an “Unassigned” group in the UCC’s inventory page. Using the UCC’s hierarchy, or tree structure, an administrator can place the unconfigured child LM into a parent group where it will automatically inherit all the appropriate configurations. These configs can include options like AAA settings (IP, shared secrets, DNS, NTP, SNMP, etc.), banners, syslog, environmental thresholds, and many more. The ability to inherit configs ensures that it’s easy to standardize your deployment. Hierarchical groupings by geography, location type, security levels, or whatever other breakouts that make sense for your environment allow you to manage the deployment quickly and accurately. With each LM heart beating to the Control Centre at a preconfigured interval, any subsequent config changes are also automatically inherited. This makes it possible to rapidly push broad—or targeted—changes to your Uplogix deployment.
