I'm very new to SolarWinds. I'm wondering if somebody can help me with how to schedule nightly backups for all the network devices in SolarWinds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
email@example.com There is actually a default job for this already created. You simply need to go to the "Jobs" link, under the main "Configs" tab. From there, you can either create a new job to perform the device backups, or you can select the existing backup job, duplicate it, and modify it to fit your needs.
This is the direct link to the NCM Jobs page:
firstname.lastname@example.org Here is the actual step-by-step from the official SolarWinds Success Center:
SolarWinds NCM installs an example job that downloads the configuration files nightly for all nodes in the database. You can modify the example for your specific needs, or you can create a new job.
Let us know how it goes, and if you need anything else.
