Command line operations¶
Plixer Endpoint Analytics supports command line operations for certain appliance-level administration actions and functions, even after the system has been fully deployed and configured.
To access the command line, start a console or SSH session to the management interface (ens160) of the Plixer Endpoint Analytics appliance.
As a security measure, attempts to log in as the
root user will be blocked by the appliance. To issue commands requiring root privileges, initiate the SSH session as the
beacon user before elevating to root.
The password for the
beacon appliance user account can be changed using the
passwd beacon command.
