The M-100 management device can operate in Panorama (where Log Collector functionality is available) mode or Log Collector mode. This document shows the CLI command to use to switch the operational mode from Log Collector to Panorama mode.

Note: For Panorama 7.0, see the M-500 Appliance Quick Start for the steps to Change the Mode of Operation on the M-500 appliance or M-100 appliance.



Use the following CLI command to change the M-100 device from Log Collector mode to Panorama mode:

> request system logger-mode panorama

Executing this command will change the system to panorama mode, current configuration and logs will be removed. The system will restart and then reset the data. Are you sure you want to continue? (y/n) (y or n)


Broadcast message from root (Tue Oct 22 00:00:27 2013):


The system is going down for reboot NOW!


Note: On a production device that has collected a large amount of logs, the system may require additional amount of time to clear the logs before it can be reached on the Web UI or CLI. During this time, a Telnet connection may appear to succeed, but authentication will fail.
