Cisco ISE | Repository, CLI

ISE Repositories can be configured from both the GUI and the CLI of the ISE and can be used for these purposes:


Backup and Restore of ISE Configuration and Operational data;

Upgrade of ISE nodes;

Patch installation;

Export of data (Reports) from the ISE;

Export of support bundle from the ISE node.


Repositories configured from CLI of the ISE node are local to each node and are removed upon reload of the node. Repositories configured from the GUI of the ISE are replicated to all nodes in deployment and are not removed upon reload of the node.

#1) Verify if you have some host add.


#2) Delete any host if you don't know:


#3) Add a new one:


#4) Check using nslookup:


#5) Configure a repository:


#6) Checking if you have created a repository:


If you need to transfer/copy an image, try using this debug to check the messages - will help you a lot!



The repository created from CLI will not get reflected on GUI.
