I am doing a proof of concept of NPM and NCM for my organization. What we're after the most is configuration management. A requirement is that the configuration files are stored on a remote server securely. I was under impression I'd be able to achieve this using a defined SCP server. However, that isn't the case. All files end up in the configuration archive folder locally. Checking out documentation:
"Use this widget to download the startup, running, or custom configuration from the current node. Select the configuration type from the list, and then click Download. Downloaded configuration files are stored on your server in the location specified in NCM Settings > Config Settings > Config Archive Folder Locations. "
This clearly states where the files will land. Then, I would like to understand what is the purpose of configuring the SCP server in NCM. To drive the point home, I was hoping I'd be able to use this very option to transfer configuration files to the named SCP server. What are known/supported means of doing this?
