I created a custom property which I planned to populate with a value which would distinguish it and allow me to choose this particular node to run my config change template on. However when I go to choose nodes on which to execute my script on it is not available to select from the dropdown list??? I can go to my custom property editor on my NPM server and see it there right in front of me but when I go to use it as a selection criteria when using a config change template its not available!
It is however, a property with which I can group nodes from the "Manage Nodes" page of my web console? Anyone encountered this before?
In an older version of SW I had to restart all my servers after adding custom properties to be able to use them anywhere. Thankfully, that is no longer the case in a more recent version.
I am basing/attaching/associating the custom property on/with a router. Below is the list of custom properties available for me to choose as a selection criteria for the nodes on which I wish to run a config change template
No sign of include_for_bgp_job property which I have created.....
However in the Manage Nodes tab of my NPM web console the property is there for me to use as a selection??
And no it's not there if I scroll up in config change template drop down! Ha ha. Strange though, it's like I've maxed the memory on Custom properties????
I have seen hundreds of custom properties before. The way they are added to the database, I'm not really sure there is a maximum number.
That being said, make sure that your NCM and NPM databases have been synchronized after making the custom property.
