Port: [8443]:
Heartbeat interval (seconds): [30]:
Heartbeat during: [all]:

Heartbeat during specifies when the Lantronix Local Manager provides a heartbeat, and may be set to inband, outband, or all.

Minimal heartbeat can be configured from the CC. The setting is displayed as:

Always use minimal heartbeat: true

You will only be prompted for the NTP location if the Local Manager has not been managed by an Lantronix Control Center before.

Note: If the Local Manager has been managed by the Lantronix Control Center at some time in the past, this command will not configure NTP. In this situation, use the config system ntp command to set the Lantronix Control Center as the Local Manager's NTP server.
