Does anyone know if you can do bulk password changes for devices,groups and so forth for either VTY,enable,privilege,console, AAA username/passowrd,SSH username/password. My dilemna is we do password changes on a quartlerly basis and it's a pain to have to manually change each device password for 200 or so devices. I have been looking and could not find anything in the documentation or this forum. I hope this may be an option in future releases.
Can you clarify for me please whether its the actual devices you want to update the passwords, or whether its the CatTools database you want to update to sync it with your device password changes (or is it both?)
we are having bulk CISCO and HP devices, in which each devices are having 3 username (login id's) to login to devices.
How can we change the individual username and password for bulk devices.
To Change both the SSH username and password, you will need to use two different activities:
To change the password, you will want to use a DB.UpdateDevice.Password field activity, and on the Options tab you can change the SSH password:
To change the SSH username, you will want to use a DB.UpdateDevice.Text field activity. You will want to click on the Options tab, check the database filed, select Passwords\SSH-Username, and fill in the New database value with the password:
These will allow you to change both.
Thanks for the input...
But i have 1 more query like..
Curently i need to change password for 3 different username's(LOGIN ID's).
for example :- 1) username --> sam
2) username --> John
3) username --> Peter
How can i change all 3 login id's only passwords.
In this case you may need to use a Device.CLI.Send commands activity. You can create one activity and modify it using the commands you need to change the account password. See this link:
There are two activities available to update the login credentials in the CatTools database.
To update VTY Password, AAA Password, Enable Password, Console Password, SSH Password, SNMP Read and SNMP Write community strings; you would use the 'DB.UpdateDevice.Password field' activity: http://www.kiwisyslog.com/help/cattools/act_dbupdatepwd.htm
To update the AAA Username and SSH Username fields, you would use the 'DB.UpdateDevice.Text field' activity: http://www.kiwisyslog.com/help/cattools/act_dbupdatetxt_setup.htm
Hope this helps.
Please refer to my response to your other posting regarding the DBUpdateDevice.Text field activity and CatTools version 3.0.3
