Compare config against master template

Compare config against master template

I work for a company that has many remote sites that are all nearly identical in their network configuration. Basically the IP addresses in use at each site are different but the rest of the configurations should be identical across sites. I'd like to be able to create a "master config template" and schedule a nightly report that compares each site configuration to that single "master config template" to look for variations.

Jiri –

Yes, that thread does appear to address the functionality I’m looking for. Is there a hope that requirement #115222 will be included in a future release of NCM?

Thanks.

We will see how many votes it gets. The chance is realistic but we can't promise anything, of course.

So is that a feature request item that I can vote up?

You have created the idea, i.e. already voted, haven't you?

Level 9

Yes. However, based on your link to the other article/issue I was wondering if these two items were really duplicates.

This would be GREAT functionality, and much more manageable than trying to create compliance policies.  You would need to be able to specify the items to ignore.  Our templates have search and replace "keywords" for things like IP addresses, gateways, hostnames, etc.

Any word on weither this will be included in a future release?

Hi,

As you can see, it is a very popular feature request and thus high on our priority list. However I can't share exact plans.
