This is sort like the end of life database but slightly different. could you create a IOS register for nodes that could show what ios is currently being used and be able to compare that with the latest IOS that is available to see if we are keeping up to date. Also could it be able to set a IOS version as the standard approved version for that model. Thirdly could it incorporate the ability to automate/push the updating of the IOS to the approved version so that for we can roll out updates to equipment in the field or build a new switch etc in a lab and have it compliant with the approved IOS. At the moment we manage the approved register of IOS's out of a spreadsheet and overtime you end up with a mix of IOS's floating around on equipment as new versions are released or equipment is replaced.
