What We Are Working On Now...

Jump to solution

Hi everyone – there’s no summer vacation for the NCM team. We just got NCM 6.0 out the door, and we’re already hard at work on a number of new features. In addition to the routine set of fixes, new device templates, and other optimizations – we’re working on:

Improved Policy Reports – import and export policies, rules, and possibly whole reports.  Check for violations in config blocks (interface-level checking). We’re also looking at enhancing the user interface to make policy creation more intuitive and management much simpler. 

Support for multiple config types – you’ve asked for this, and we’re working on it now.

Additional IpV6 support – NCM already has IpV 6 support for many activities, and we’re working on additional support.

Improved inventory management – we are working on making this process easier and the reports even more useful. 

Additional device templates  - including support for Motorola WS5100 WAP and ES3000 switch devices.

Sorry, this is sort of a double post.  I mistakenly posted to the Blog entry the first time.

Any chance to Windows GUI search feature will be ported to the web console?  And perhaps a more automated way to set up realtime change alerts Smiley Happy

We are indeed working on bringing global search to the integration module (it's only in the standalone website right now). I think that is the search you are referring to? On the real-time change alerts - that's definitely in the plan, but it's a little lower in the priorities. We know it's a pain to set those up though, so we'll be addressing that soon.

What do you mean by "Multiple Config Types"?

If you means support for multiple contexts (Cisco ACE, ASA and FWSM), I will be eager to see that.

There might be workaround available, however it is not native and actually a lot of work to setup for each contexts per device.  We are using context extensively and it is not quite practical to use the workaround.

Yes, that's what we mean. We're working on making that a lot easier.

What is the work around?  I searched around the forums for a bit, but I didn't see any workarounds for this.  We have an ACE as well, and I was wondering how to do this.

Sorry, I don't really have a workaround for you right now, but that feature is coming up very soon.

By "Improved inventory management", does that include the ability to store more than one inventory's worth of data?

For example, I want to search for a MAC address. If that machine wasn't connected at the time of the inventory (or, more specifically, still in the MAC table of the device), it won't show up.

I run inventories at night. I tried running multiple inventories, but the last one run simply overwrites the previous.

It makes it difficult to see where users/ devices are (i.e. a user goes on vacation and turns off PC/ takes laptop with).

This is very important for us as well.

 

Our top 2 would be MAC address searching, and auto config downloading and alerting on a change.

Can we get 3DES encryption for SNMP v3 added? Many of my devices (cisco ASA firewalls) support this encryption.

 

Thanks.
