Debug mode enabled for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will alert if one of the debug mechanisms on a device is enabled when the default is for it to be disabled.

Remediation Steps

Turn off the debug as soon as possible.

1. Use the "show debug" NX-OS command to display the current debug status and the "undebug all" command to disable all debugging.

How does this work?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the status of running debugs. In normal operation there should not be any debugs enabled.

Why is this important?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the status of running debugs. In normal operation there should not be any debugs enabled.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator would detect enabled debugging by logging in to the device or by monitoring syslog messages in case debug level logging has been enabled.
