Name Data Type Permissions Description
mbfpeermacupdate <Double> Read-write When mbf_instant_learning is enabled, learn any changes in peer's MAC after this time interval, which is in 10ms ticks.

Default value: 10
maxbridgecollision <Double> Read-write Maximum bridge collision for loop detection .

Default value: 20
bdggrpproxyarp <String> Read-write Set/reset proxy ARP in bridge group deployment.

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
bdgsetting <String> Read-write Bridging settings for C2C behavior. If enabled, each PE will learn MAC entries independently. Otherwise, when L2 mode is ON, learned MAC entries on a PE will be broadcasted to all other PEs.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
garponvridintf <String> Read-write Send GARP messagess on VRID-configured interfaces upon failover .

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
macmodefwdmypkt <String> Read-write Allows MAC mode vserver to pick and forward the packets even if it is destined to Citrix ADC owned VIP.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
usemymac <String> Read-write Use Citrix ADC MAC for all outgoing packets.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
proxyarp <String> Read-write Proxies the ARP as Citrix ADC MAC for FreeBSD.

Default value: ENABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
garpreply <String> Read-write Set/reset REPLY form of GARP .

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
mbfinstlearning <String> Read-write Enable instant learning of MAC changes in MBF mode.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
rstintfonhafo <String> Read-write Enable the reset interface upon HA failover.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
skipproxyingbsdtraffic <String> Read-write Control source parameters (IP and Port) for FreeBSD initiated traffic. If Enabled, source parameters are retained. Else proxy the source parameters based on next hop.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
returntoethernetsender <String> Read-write Return to ethernet sender.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
stopmacmoveupdate <String> Read-write Stop Update of server mac change to NAT sessions.

Default value: DISABLED

Possible values = ENABLED, DISABLED
bridgeagetimeout <Double> Read-write Time-out value for the bridge table entries, in seconds. The new value applies only to the entries that are dynamically learned after the new value is set. Previously existing bridge table entries expire after the previously configured time-out value.

Default value: 300

Minimum value = 60

Maximum value = 300

Operations

(click to see Properties )

  • UPDATE
  • UNSET
  • GET (ALL)

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the 'warning' query parameter as 'yes'. For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code '209 X-NITRO-WARNING'.

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER: <username>

    X-NITRO-PASS: <password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>

Note:

Mandatory parameters are marked in red and placeholder content is marked in green
