The Uplogix Control Center (UCC) provides users with the capability to open SSH connections to Local Managers that pass through to the console port of a managed device via the CLI Applet button (blue “CLI” button to the left of the port on the UCC dashboard for a given Local Manager or on the Local Manager Port Details page). This requires a user to log into the UCC, click on a port CLI applet button and provide his/her Uplogix password in the applet window in order to login to the Local Manager and connect to the CLI of a managed device. Under normal circumstances, the CLI Applet establishes a SSH connection to the Uplogix Local Manager. This CLI Applet Failover feature allows users to configure the CLI Applet such that it fails over to establishing a SSH connection directly to the managed device in the unusual event that the applet is unable to establish a SSH connection to the Uplogix Local Manager.
