      Figure 1: NSM4000 Serial Console

      NSM4000 Serial Console

      Note:

      • From your second login, the serial console displays the following prompt if you are not logged in:

        Juniper NSMXpress Appliance

        NSM 2012.2R7

        NSM4000.juniper.net login: admin
        Password:
        Last login: Wed Oct 1 02:22:21 on ttyS0
        Run NSM4000 system setup? [y/N]

        Enter n to exit from the system setup program.

      • These values are not case-sensitive. However, the uppercase N indicates it is the default value. Any keystroke, including Enter but not y or Y, accepts the default value.
    7. Enter sudo su - at the command prompt to log in as a root user.

      The serial console prompts to enter the admin password as displayed below:

      [admin@NSM4000 ~]$ sudo su -
      [sudo] password for admin:
      [root@NSM4000 ~]#

      Note: An NSM appliance has three user levels. All users log in as the admin user. To use the command line to administer NSM, change to the nsm user. For advanced administration, change to the root user.

      The following users are available to manage an appliance:

      • admin user—Logs in to the NSM appliance setup program and changes to nsm user or root user from the command line.
      • nsm user—Administers NSM services. To change to the nsm user from the admin user, go to the $ prompt, enter sudo su - nsm for the $ prompt, then enter the admin password you set when logging in to the NSM appliance. To return to the admin user, enter exit at the $ prompt.
      • root user—Administers advanced system settings. To change to the root user from the admin user, go to the $ prompt, enter sudo su - root for the # root prompt, then enter the admin password you set when logging in to the NSM appliance. To return to the admin user, enter exit from the # prompt.
    8. Enter the admin password.
    9. Enter nsm_setup at the command prompt to configure the NSMXpress settings.
