Use this REST API to retrieve information about or modify Lenovo XClarity Administrator's global encapsulation setting.

The global encapsulation setting is disabled by default. When disabled, the device encapsulation mode is set to "normal" and the firewall rules are not changed as part of the management process.

When the global encapsulation setting is enabled and the device supports encapsulation, XClarity Administrator communicates with the device during the management process to change the device encapsulation mode to "encapsulationLite" and to change the firewall rules on the device to limit incoming requests to those only from XClarity Administrator.

Attention: If encapsulation is enabled and XClarity Administrator becomes unavailable before a device is unmanaged, necessary steps must be taken to disable encapsulation to establish communication with the device. For recovery procedures, see Recovering management with a CMM after a management server failure and Recovering rack or tower server management after a management server failure.
