    The following section provides a list of system level commands you can reference when using the CLI.

    Table 1: System Level CLI Commands

    Command

    Syntax

    Description

    set

    set <setting> <value>

    set interface <interface> <attribute> <value>

    set dns <setting> <value>

    Sets local system level properties, including the hostname, network interfaces, DNS servers, proxy servers and more. For more information about the various settings available with this command use help set for usage information.

    Example:

    system> set interface eth2 onboot no

    See The CLI: The Set Command for details.

    show

    show [category]

    Shows system configuration. When given without a [category], this command will show the entire system configuration.

    Example:

    system> show management-interface "eth0"

    status

    status <item>

    Depending on the item supplied, this will look over the local system for the status of the component requested. For a list of all available items to retrieve status information for, type help status.

    Example:

    system> status network

    system> status ha

    unset

    unset <setting> <value>

    unset interface <interface> <attribute> <value>

    unset dns <setting> <value>

    Unsets the given local system configuration. If allowed to be empty or unset this command will remove the specified setting completely. Not all system level properties are allowed to be unset, such as hostname and the management interface.

    backup

    backup

    Initiate a system backup. Backups are stored in /home/mykonos/backups/ directory.

    Example:

    system> backup

    Confirm Backup [y|N]: y

    initialize

    initialize

    Runs the system initialization process.

    Example:

    [mykonos@webappsecure ~]$ cli system initialize

    services

    services [subcommand]

    Enter the services level of the CLI. This level allows you to control the services running on the local system. The subcommand can consist of two parts, the action to take, and the component to take that action.

    Actions

    • status
    • start
    • restart
    • shutdown

    Example:

    system> services status nginx

    nginx (pid 1614) is running...

    Note: To see all available components, type the action, a space, and then hit the TAB key to see a list of components available for that action. To restart the network for interface configurations to update, type cli system services restart network.
