You have the option to manage Virtual Appliances (VA) directly from the Lumu Portal. The virtual appliance allows for full visibility into the compromises inside your network and is available for the main hypervisors.
You can find the steps for creating a Lumu VA by accessing our documentation on the Lumu Virtual Appliance.
When you first create a Virtual Appliance on the Lumu portal, it remains inactive. To activate the VA, follow the steps on our appliance configuration guide.
To visualize all the details of the VA you created, go to the Lumu portal, navigate to the menu VA area, and click on the virtual appliance you want to manage.
On the Virtual Appliance details page, you are going to find the following sections:
To edit the appliance details, go to the Lumu Portal, navigate to the menu VA area, click on the virtual appliance, and select the option to edit it. In this area, you are able to edit the appliance name, the default label, and the description.
The revoke process generates a new activation code. This option should be used in specific scenarios such as when you lost the activation code, or when cloning the appliance and avoiding using the same credentials, etc.
To revoke an appliance, go to the Lumu Portal, navigate to the VA area, click on the VA, and select the option to revoke.
Once you confirm the revoke action, a new activation code will be generated for that Virtual Appliance.
The deletion process permanently removes the virtual appliance. This action cannot be undone and should be used when you want to permanently remove the appliance.
To delete an appliance, go to the Lumu Portal, navigate to the VA area, click on the virtual appliance and select the option to delete.
On the Lumu Portal you have the option to create rules for individual assets or groups of assets in order to label the Virtual Appliance’s activities.
Rules are based on CIDRs (Classless Inter-Domain Routing). When you create a rule, all activity coming from a device in which the IP address matches the CIDR will be labeled accordingly to the assigned label. If no match is found in the custom collector rules, the default label is applied.
To manage rules for a Virtual Appliance, go to the Lumu Portal and select the corresponding option:
You can add, edit, or remove labels for specific IP addresses or a group of IPs.
You can take advantage of Virtual Appliance Collectors to manage the data collection of your network metadata consult our VA collector documentation for details.
