How do i tell if i'm on a VSX, Open server or appliance gateway?

We have an environment with a VSX cluster, a number of appliances and some open server implementations. We don't have Multi Domain Manager yet.

How do i tell if a gateway is on VSX or something else?

I'm writing instructions and would like for someone new to be able to understand what they are working on.

One option is clish command show asset

Open server example

clish -c "show asset system"
Platform: VMware Virtual Platform
CPU Model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2699 v3
CPU Frequency: 2299.969
Number of Cores: 16
CPU Hyperthreading: Disabled

Appliance (model will have Check Point in it):

clish -c "show asset system"
Platform: PL-40-00
Model: Check Point 5900
Serial Number: 1748BA4090
CPU Model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 v4
CPU Frequency: 2095.251
Number of Cores: 16
CPU Hyperthreading: Enabled

Run vsx stat (in expert mode) or fw vsx stat (in clish) to see whether the system is VSX.

Haha, i misunderstood the question. Good one.

Thanks Kaspars & Lari,

we have a complication in that by design we can't login to the VSX hosts via our RADIUS accounts so need to manage things like clusterxl failover via vsx_utils from the manager which is on open server, so i can't run those commands, even though i'm managing VSX.

Smartdashboard does show what hardware a gateway is on so is likely another good clue.

You can execute commands from the manager on the gateway:

admin@fwmanager:~# cprid_util -server <GW-IP-ADDRESS> rexec -verbose -rcmd /bin/bash -c "vsx stat"
VSX is not supported on this platform
