Admin

Under the Admin menu is where we configure AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting). Here, we can set up RBAC and also connect to authentication providers, such as LDAP; for example, Microsoft Active Directory, RADIUS, or TACACS+. We can also set up PKI to use certificate chains.

We can create maintenance schedules, either one-off tasks or regular ones. We can configure our log retention policies, upgrade our firmware, and configure callhome (after setting up the policies in the Fabric menu), SNMP, and Syslog. The Admin menu is also where we would perform configuration rollbacks and the importing of configuration files and exporting of technical support files.
