Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS) is the core of Arista cloud networking solutions for next-generation data centers and cloud networks.

NOTE
Axonius uses the Arista eAPI 101.

Adapter Parameters

  1. Arista EOS Domain (required) - The hostname of the Arista EOS server/switch.
  2. User Name and Password (required) - The user name and password to access the Arista switch.
  3. EOS Enable Password (optional, default: empty) - Specify the enable password to authorize executing the enable command. The enable password is required if the Arista switch requires enable command authorization, that controls access to Privileged EXEC and all configuration command modes.
    • If supplied, the API will use the specified enable password to execute the enable command.
    • If not supplied, the API will not be able to execute the enable command. As a result, it may be that minimal or no data will be retrieved from the Arista switch.
  4. Verify SSL (required, default: False) - Verify the SSL certificate offered by the host supplied in Arista EOS Domain. For more details, see SSL Trust & CA Settings.
    • If enabled, the SSL certificate offered by the host will be verified against the CA database inside of Axonius. If it fails validation, the connection will fail with an error.
    • If disabled, the SSL certificate offered by the host will not be verified against the CA database inside of Axonius.
  5. HTTPS Proxy (optional, default: empty) - A proxy to use when connecting to Arista EOS Domain.
    • If supplied, Axonius will utilize the proxy when connecting to the host defined for this connection.
    • If not supplied, Axonius will connect directly to the host defined for this connection.
  6. Choose Instance (required, default: 'Master') - The Axonius node to utilize when connecting to Arista EOS Domain. For more details, see Connecting Additional Axonius Nodes.
