NMIS Configuration

This page contains several sections for both NMIS8 and NMIS9.

We have detailed a set of commonly configured attributes that most users will want to consider.

We also have a very detailed list of every option available that most users will not need to use, unless they have a specific use-case.

The NMIS8 configuration items are stored in a text file /usr/local/nmis8/conf/Config.nmis.

The NMIS9 configuration items are stored in a text file /usr/local/nmis9/conf/Config.nmis.

Common Settings to Consider Adjusting for NMIS8

Below are settings customers commonly change, typically authentication and email settings.

 Common NMIS8 Configuration

Authentication

authenticationauth_cookie_flavournmisnmis, omkUser Management in NMIS8To configure NMIS to share authentication cookies with Opmantek Applications, it is necessary that you change the configuration item auth_cookie_flavour from the default "nmis" to "omk" and set the configuration item auth_web_key to the same value as the OMK application's first omkd_secrets configuration.
authenticationauth_default_groups

As aboveWhen accessing NMIS, you have a choice on how to handle authenticated users who do not have authorisations defined, you can reject them, or you can allow them default access. This is so that you do not have to define every user in the system if the authentication system is providing a reduced list of users, to have the users become an operator or guest by default and be able to see all groups of devices, the following would apply. 'auth_default_privilege' => 'guest', 'auth_default_groups' => 'all'. To prevent default authorisation, simply define them as blank, which is the default in the NMIS8 Install configuration.
authenticationauth_default_privilege

As aboveAs above for auth_default_groups
authenticationauth_ldap_contextou=people,dc=opmantek,dc=com
As aboveThe base of context to attempt to bind to 
authenticationauth_ldap_server192.168.1.5<ip>As aboveThe LDAP server to use for autheitcation.
authenticationauth_method_1htpasswd
As aboveIn the NMIS configuration you can configure multiple methods which are used for auth failure, so if ms-ldap fails, it will fail back to htpasswd for example. This means if you set auth_method_1 to be ldap and auth_method_2 to be htpasswd, and login with the default NMIS credentials (and you have not changed the password), the authentication for LDAP will fail, and then authentication with the users.dat will succeed and the user will be logged in.
authenticationauth_method_2

As aboveAs above for auth_method_1
authenticationauth_ms_ldap_basedc=corp,dc=opmantek,dc=com
As aboveThe LDAP Base to search from
authenticationauth_ms_ldap_dn_accnmis
As aboveThe DomainName\account to bind with
