HI  @Mark_Gurevich ,

please try my helper extension https://dannyjung.de/smx.json and check if these conditions are met:


   ['type'] == 'CpmiClusterMember' or 'simple-gateway' ['os-name'] == 'Gaia' ['version'] == 'R80.40' or startsWith('R81') ['hardware'].endsWith('Appliance') or ('Appliances')

Hi Danny,

Thanks for quick reply.

Not sure how, but after upgrading the SmartConsole to the latest build, everything started to work

HI,

I have a quick query re: the extension. I have added it and it works to a point. I have to 'Load' it; approve the script commit, the look at the task results. In other words I don't see the output in the window as shown in my attached screenshot. I am running the 80.40 SmartConsole Build 416.

Thanks

Hi Danny,

I'm trying the CoreXL balancing extension., and getting error: Loading Error: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

New to these addons and I only added the extension to SmartConsole, is there any other basic pre-reqs for extensions to work ? Any requirement to reboot SMC or gateways ?

Cheers,

Neil.

There are not other requirements. Which SmartConsole version and build are you using? Does your SmartConsole has direct internet access or is there a proxy in between? Where exactly does the error message appear?

Hi Danny,

Its SmartConsole R80.40 Build 416. There is indeed a proxy in between. (Isn't this a security community, why would we let a random connection get to the Internet unchecked ... 🙂

The error appears in extension panel on SmartConsole, see snip.

Cheers,

Troubleshooting SmartConsole Extensions - sk166932 <- set UseDefaultWebProxy=true and it should work.

Excellent - that worked, thanks.

For me I had to add UseDefaultWebProxy=true in SmartConsole.exe.config. Then I had to add the proxy Ip in the GUI clients on the SMC.

On one SMC I found the API service had crashed  😟 so had to restart it. ( More work, I suspect possible memory leak in 80.40 JHFA Take 91 for management)

That SK was hard to find, perhaps pin to Extensions forum, very useful

Anyway, extension now working. Great tool and thanks again
