User.def location on Smart-1 Cloud

Hi All,

 

I have Migrated our Management server to Smart-1 Cloud and looking to import user.def file. Not sure if its possible, as i have not found any reference in smart-1 cloud management guide. does it have to be uploaded via API? 

I can browse to the home directory on smart-1 cloud but not sure if the file need to be uploaded there.

The location depends on GW version, see sk98239 (Location of 'user.def' file on Management Server)

But with Smart-1 Cloud you will have to contact TAC, afaik it is not possible/supported to change special files after migration yourself.

Anything that requires dbedit or editing .def files on Smart-1 Cloud will require a TAC case to perform.

Procedures that require file editing on the Management machine are not directly supported in Smart-1 Cloud. Such cases should indeed go through TAC and they will make the change & document it so that we can take it into account when maintaining the environment.

It's worth mentioning two things in this context:

  1. GuiDBEdit is available to Smart-1 Cloud customers. Although it is an advanced tool and should be used carefully, it works within the same DB as SmartConsole and does not modify files on the disk. You can launch it from within SmartConsole via the main menu.
  2. A very common use-case for user.def is to modify the subnet_for_range_and_peer parameter. Since R80.40 it's possible to configure custom VPN encryption domains directly in the Community configuration in SmartConsole UI. That is a much better way and can save you the need to modify user.def.
