Configuring Options (NSM Procedure)

You can configure the types of system logging messages sent about the routing protocols process to the system log message file. These messages are also displayed on the system console. You can log messages at a particular level or up to and including a particular level.

To configure options in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand Routing Options.
  5. Select Options.
  6. Enter the parameters as specified in Table 40.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the routing option settings.

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 Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
