HI THWACK Team,
Expecting quick support and suggestions on NCM_Firmware upgrade Operations using for CISCO IOS_Upgrades which includes CISCO switches,Routers of Different Models.
We have been practicing to do Firmware upgrade from Solarwinds to the CISCO devices which means we are copying(Pre-push) IOS to the CISCO devices.
While performing this Job we have experienced below.
1)Delay in Copying : Taking 45 Minutes of time to copy IOS to the CISCO Network Devices.Hope this is the common behavior of solarwinds.
2) Templates for Different Models:Identifying , downloading different templates for Copying IOS for different device models.
3)Even though we have selected multiple jobs one job will performed / executed at once.
We have been performing IOS pre-push using FTP and TFTP , observing no issues.Copy of image completed in not more than 10 mins
As a part of automation we are planning to do IOS pre-push from Solarwinds.
Let us Consider 20 devices , we want to perform this in a single shot.But while doing this from solarwinds we are facing two issues
1)Delay 2) IOS should done on a single device at single time.
