source interfaces for management communication

As you know, configuring management services on Huawei devices, you can add source interface or IP address for transmitting packets. This is an optional configuration. Below you can find configuration syntax for source interfaces in management communication. If you find out that anything else should be added to this list, just let me know.

Info-center source:
[labnario]info-center loghost source ?
  Aux              AUX interface
  Eth-Trunk        Ethernet Trunk interface
  GigabitEthernet  GigabitEthernet interface
  LoopBack         LoopBack interface
  NULL             NULL interface
  Pos              POS interface
Radius server source:
[labnario-radius-test]radius-server source interface ?
  Eth-Trunk        Ethernet Trunk interface
  GigabitEthernet  GigabitEthernet interface
  LoopBack         LoopBack interface
  Pos              POS interface

a few basic but useful maintenance commands

To make it easy to maintain Huawei’s device it is recommended to configure proper time. You can do it manually or configure NTP protocol to force the device to use reference time from external servers. I will also show you how to configure header for login information and how to execute the specified batch file.

Setting of time zone:
clock timezone time-zone-name { add | minus } offset

Let’s take Poland time zone as an example.

<NE40E>clock timezone labnario add 1
 Setting of daylight-saving-time:
clock daylight-saving-time time-zone-name repeating start-time { { { first | second | third | fourth | last } weekday month } | start-date } end-time { { { first | second | third | fourth | last } weekday month } | end-date } offset
