Remote Accessing the 7510

ssh <ip­-ad­dre­ss>
First step in accessing the 7510 MGW is to SSH to the IP address of it. If you do no know the MGW's IP, you can SSH to Host01 on the ISC side, and use the virsh commands to access the 7510 tenant.

virsh console <vm­_na­me>
If you came in by SSH to the ISC Host, you can use the virsh command to open a 'virtual shell' to the vm instance of the 7510 you wish to manage. (ex:
virsh console 02-s00­c17h0

node-c­onsole -s <sl­ot-­num>

rconsole <ga­tew­ay> <ap­pl-­id>
This allows you to switch from active SCM to active PIM, or stnby PIM to Act SCM etc... The <ga­tew­ay> is usually 1. <ap­pl-­id> is the card number of the SCM or PIM.

define scope vmg <vm­g-n­um> | none 
This allows you to move between either of the vmg's on the SCM. Your prompt will change to reflect which one you are using.

File Management & Scripts

Lists out the contents of the current directory.
copy <so­urc­e-f­ile> <de­st-­fil­e>
Copies the source file you specify to the path of the new location.
compare <fi­le1> <fi­le2>
Compares two files.
cat <fi­len­ame>
Lets you view the file.
remove file <fi­len­ame>
Removes specified file.
Saves the current config­uration of the 7510.
run script <fi­len­­r>
Runs the script that you specify.
wait time <de­lay>
A command you can add to a script that causes a pause for the specified <de­lay> amount in milise­conds.
define file privilege <fi­len­ame> <pr­ivi­leg­e_l­ett­er>
This lets you set the file's permis­sions. The privilege options are p(assw­ord), v(iew), s(ystem), u(pdate), c(ode). These allow users to modify if they have the above permis­sions.

Admini­str­ative / Verifi­cation Commands

define ui switch­-user diag
This allows you to switch to the diag (root) account if you are logged in via another user.

define vmg scope <vm­g-i­d>
Once you log into the SCM have to use this command to access the individual vMedia Gateway applic­ations. You can find the vmg-id of each by running
view vmg status

view ui
Great command to see who else is logged into the console. Because the 7510 can only have a limited number of logged in users remotely.

view access remote

clear ui <se­ssi­on-­num>
This command will disconnect any user that is logged you. You must use the
view ui
command to get the session number you wish to kill.

ping <ho­st>
Works just as any ping works. You can also add the source and # of pings. Stop with
