Re: not able to access GUI of GSS

Hi, in order to access the GUI of the GSS, you have to activate the role of GSSM.

Try this command to verify if the device is already configured as GSSM.

You should get something like this:

#gss status verbose

Cisco GSS - 2.0(1) GSSM - primary [Fri May 22 01:00:16 UTC 2009]

Normal Operation [runmode = 5]


0.0 0.2 May01 Boomerang

0.1 2.7 May01 Config Agent (crdirector)

0.1 3.4 May01 Config Server (crm)

0.0 3.3 May01 DNS Server



If the device is not configured for the role of primary GSSM, you should follow the steps in the link bellow to activate it:

Configuring a Primary GSSM

Keep in mind if you have more than one gss in the network, you should configure the role of gssm stand-by.

Re: not able to access GUI of GSS

My gss shows this output

gss status verbose

Cisco GSS - 3.0(2) GSSM - standby [Wed May 27 20:12:05 UTC 2009]

Registered to primary GSSM:

Normal Operation [runmode = 5]


0.0 0.1 17:33 Boomerang

0.0 1.4 17:24 Config Agent (crdirector)

0.0 0.8 17:24 Config Server (crm)

0.0 1.6 17:33 DNS Server

0.0 0.3 17:24 Database

I believe .. i will not able to access the standby GUI and till the time it is standby state state correct ?

Once standby becomes primary then i will be will able to access GUI ..otherwise only cli access .. let me know if i am correct ?

You almost resolved my issue

Re: not able to access GUI of GSS

Hi, based in the output provided, you should be able to access the GUI using this url in a browser <>

The GUI is only available from the current GSSM primary. There should be only one primary in the setup at any given time.

SSH or telnet access is available all the time.
