Configuring CoS Code Point Aliases (NSM Procedure)

You can use code-point aliases to streamline the process of configuring CoS features on your device. A code-point alias assigns a name to a pattern of code-point bits. You can use this name instead of the bit pattern when you configure other CoS components such as classifiers, drop-profile maps, and rewrite rules.

To configure code-point aliases:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device for which you want to configure CoS code point aliases.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Class of Service.
  4. Select Code Point Aliases.
  5. Add or modify the settings as specified in Table 199
  6. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.

Table 199: Configuring Code Point Aliases
