This article describes how to set up network access to the Corsa Security Orchestrator (CSO). This article assumes the CSO command line is accessible through the host hypervisor browser console.
Gather the required information from your network administrator
To configure the Corsa Security Orchestrator (CSO) management interface you will require the following information from your network administrator.
- a static IPv4 address for the CSO management interface <ip-address>
- a network prefix <prefix>
- a default gateway <default-gateway>
- a domain <domain>
- a primary <dns1> and secondary [dns2] DNS IPv4 address
Please note the the secondary DNS IP address [dns2] is optional.
Configure the static network access settings for the management interface
- Log in to the Corsa Security Orchestrator command line using the predefined local user named admin through the host hypervisor browser console.
- Execute the command ip link show at the command line and make a note of the interface name which typically follows the loopback (lo) interface, this is the CSO management interface. In this example the <interface-name> is enp1s0, however this interface name may be different dependent upon the operating system and hypervisor.
- Execute the command sudo cso network at the command line using the information you have gathered.
Command Usage - cso network
cso network <interface-name> <ip-address/prefix> <default-gateway> <domain> <dns1> [dns2]
> ip link show
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: enp1s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
> sudo cso network enp1s0 192.168.0.100/24 192.168.0.1 corp.companyname.com 192.168.0.11 192.168.0.12
The next step is to log in to the CSO web interface.
