How to check the MAC of the CPPM interface

Aruba Employee

Question         How do I find out what the mac addresses that are assigned to my various interfaces? Is there a way   to display my arp table via CLI or GUI?


Environment         This applies to all the versions of CPPM


Answer            There are two available ways to check the MAC addressees of the interface on CPPM.         


Option One:
    This works only when if CPPM is deployed on a VM.

Login to the ESX client and select the CPPM instance and click on "Edit virtual machine setting"

Once we click on the above link, we would be redirected to new Pop up. If we select the Network adapter, we would see the MAC as shown in the capture below.

Option Two:
         Works on both- CPPM appliance as well as VM install.

We can get this details from the logs.

The logs can be downloaded by navigating to Administrator -> Server Manager -> Collect Logs.

Once the logs are downloaded and extracted, please navigate to SystemLogs->Network-info.txt.


The first few lines contains the information which we are looking for.
