What is a Replibit System ID?
Every Replibit appliance, vault or GMP has a “System ID” that will allow our Support team to uniquely identify the device and look up key telemetry about it.
Please include the Replibit System ID in every new ticket you submit.
You can find the Replibit System ID in two locations:
1. In the lower left corner of the appliance or vault, just below the version number:
2. In the first column of the Managed Devices page on the Management Portal.
Login to the Management Portal and select Managed Devices from the top menu.
How does my Replibit System ID affect Remote Assist?
Remote Assist is a secure access feature introduced with Replibit 6.0.0. which allows you to provide our Support and Engineering teams with remote access to one or more of your BDR devices in the event that you need troubleshooting assistance.
Remote Assist is a secure-key management system that enables certificate-based ssh connections to your managed devices by leveraging their secure tunnel communications with the Management Portal. The initial deployment of Remote Assist required that our Support engineer know both the FQDN of the management portal and the custom port being used by the device they needed to connect with.
The Replibit System ID is a new feature introduced in Replibit 8.2.0.
The Replibit System ID is a shortened unique identifier assigned to each Replibit device, designed to make it easier for our Support and Development team members to identify and access your devices via Remote Assist.
A System ID is now the only piece of information our support team needs to uniquely identify and connect to your device, (provided Remote Assist is enabled on both the Management Portal and the affected device.)
When opening a ticket with support, or when an existing ticket is escalated to engineering or development, you may now be asked to provide the System ID of the affected device.
