I just enable 802.1x on our switches (Cisco and HP) and I need a way to make sure it does not get disabled.
Cisco has both a global command and an interface command. I need to make sure that each switch config has the global command enabled and that the interface command is enabled on the interfaces that they should be on. If they are not I would like an alert or email stating what is missing. HP is a little different. HP does not have a global command. I need to know if any of the interfaces are removed from the command that enables 802.1x. Again if it is then an alert of email with the change.
what is the best way to do this and can it be automated every 24 hours?
If this is done by comparing config and we only do backups once a week can the comparison be schedule every 24 hours?
