How to enable RMM using the command line utility

Jump to solution

I have a need to remotely configure and enable RMM on some MWG appliances and found instructions in the hardware guide.  I'm a little confused about the first step when prompted to choose between (onboard|rmm) and the instructional photo shows "onboard" as the selection.  Is this referencing the fact that the RMM is onboard?  To my way of thinking if I want to enable the RMM port then shouldn't I choose "rmm" at this first prompt rather than "onboard"?  Maybe I'm overthinking this, but the fact that it displays "LAN IP Address" after that I want to make sure I'm not accidentally modifying the LAN IP of the appliance.  I just want to configure RMM.

Hi,

 

the 7.8.2 hardware guide contains more details about this:
https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/web-gateway-7.8.2-hardware-guide/page/GUID-EF6541FF-5909-46BC-AC78-97...

 

So you can select what you want. This just defines the used port on the appliance. Option "onboard" takes the first onboard NIC and "rmm" the out-of-band RMM NIC.
