Config files with Gigamon switches

I have a couple of Gigamon switches I am monitoring with SW.  I noticed that I couldn't back up the config files.  Support said it was an issue with the SSH cypher not support and it would be fixed in a future release.  Has anybody found a workaround?  Thanks.

  • Not sure about Gigamon switch- we use Gigamon as our Packet Broker environment - TAXX and HC2.
    If these are the type of devices that  you are talking about, then yes we backup these devices.

    1) Connection Profile
           a) Command line access (enable prompt)
    2) A device Template for the Gigamon Environment
    This is the one that we use - I think I got it from the NCM Content Exchange.
    <Configuration-Management Device="Gigamon" SystemOID="1.3.6.1.4.1.26866" AutoDetectType="BySystemOid">
    <Commands>
    <Command Name="RESET" Value="no cli session paging enable" />
    <Command Name="Reboot" Value="reload${CRLF}y${CRLF}y" />
    <Command Name="EnterConfigMode" Value="configure terminal" />
    <Command Name="ExitConfigMode" Value="end" />
    <Command Name="Startup" Value="configuration" />
    <Command Name="Running" Value="running-config" />
    <Command Name="DownloadConfig" Value="show ${ConfigType}" />
    <Command Name="UploadConfig" Value="${EnterConfigMode}${CRLF}${ConfigText}${CRLF}${ExitConfigMode}" />
    <Command Name="Version" Value="show version" />
    </Commands>
    </Configuration-Management>

    Hope this helps -

  • Thanks for your reply.  I have a HC2 and a TA-200 in our environment.  How do i create a device template for the items above?  Thanks.

  • Settings
      All Settings
        Under Node and Group Management
           Manage Device Templates
             Add New
             Using xml Editor
                Fill in the Template Name (Something Like "Gigamon"
                Fill in system OID  '1.3.6.1.4.1.26866'
             Copy the Device Template I posted here

    <Configuration-Management Device="Gigamon" SystemOID="1.3.6.1.4.1.26866" AutoDetectType="BySystemOid">
    <Commands>
    <Command Name="RESET" Value="no cli session paging enable" />
    <Command Name="Reboot" Value="reload${CRLF}y${CRLF}y" />
    <Command Name="EnterConfigMode" Value="configure terminal" />
    <Command Name="ExitConfigMode" Value="end" />
    <Command Name="Startup" Value="configuration" />
    <Command Name="Running" Value="running-config" />
    <Command Name="DownloadConfig" Value="show ${ConfigType}" />
    <Command Name="UploadConfig" Value="${EnterConfigMode}${CRLF}${ConfigText}${CRLF}${ExitConfigMode}" />
    <Command Name="Version" Value="show version" />
    </Commands>
    </Configuration-Management>

    Then assign the Template and Connection profile to the required device
    You should then test,

  • Done and NCM is now able to backup the Gigamon switches.  Thanks for your help.

  • Happy to help were I can
    Gigamon management is an on going for us.
    Config Backup - Good 
    Basic SNMP polling and Alerting - Good
    In-Line Network/Tools Alerting - ON GOING
