How To Do Bulk Firmware Updates With NCM
How To Do Bulk Firmware Updates With NCM
October 13, 2020

As a network engineer, you're responsible for the uptime and stability of network infrastructure. One of the keys to keeping a happy and healthy network is making sure the devices are running firmware free of bugs and known issues. It may be tedious, but it's still relatively easy to do firmware upgrades if you only have one or two devices. But now, most environments have dozens of devices deployed at remote sites and branch offices. If you need to do a firmware upgrade on all of those, it's a whole different matter. This is where Network Configuration Manager can help by automating the normally manual process of firmware upgrades.

This is pretty awesome.  It's not just for configs anymore!

I know right?

Read the vulnerabilities, download the firmware, test on one device, schedule them all, profit (or at least get back some much needed personal/professional cycles).

This is very useful.
