Overview



HiveAgent is used to communicate and allow management of the specified switch device by a HiveManager Software Application. It could be the AeroHive branded AeroHive HiveManager NG or Dell branded OEM version Goldenrod.

When the system boots without a startup configuration (which is not the same as an empty startup-config) and no EULA Accept file exists on the stack master, the following prompt occurs:

AeroHive HiveManager NG EULA This switch includes a feature that enables it to work with HiveManager (an optional management suite), by sending the switch's service tag number to HiveManager to authenticate your entitlement to use HiveManager. If you wish to disable this feature, you should run command "eula-consent hiveagent reject" immediately upon powering up the switch for the first time, or at any time thereafter.

When upgrading the switch firmware of a switch that is currently running HiveAgent there are specific steps laid out in the firmware release notes (found in the firmware download zip file) that must be run before upgrading to 6.3.0.15 from a 6.3.0.x release. Solution KB article SLN302479 can also be referenced internally by Dell Representatives.

Currently, only N-1500, N-2000 and N-3000 are supported in a non-stacked environment.
