How can I obtain switch configurations through an NMS when the IP address of the NMS is on a VPN

When an NMS manages a switch through a VPN, switch management information needs to be sent to the NMS through a VPN instance.
You can run the set net-manager vpn-instance command to configure the default VPN instance for the NMS to manage the switch so that the switch can use this VPN instance to communicate with the NMS.

- Before running this command, ensure that a VPN instance has been created successfully on the switch.
- After this command is configured, commands that you have configured for file transfers over FTP, TFTP, or SFTP only take effect in the default VPN instance.
- If the switch has been configured as a log host, the NMS can receive logs from the switch through the default VPN instance.
