ENA Configuration Management allows you to configure devices and ports on your network by running scripts on those target devices, if the appropriate CLI credential sets have been established. Configuration Management requires a valid license and is activated through configure.
It uses a combination of the ENA information database, an Expect API and Groovy scripts to enable you to specify configuration tasks.
Configuration Management allows you to:
- retrieve and archive device configuration files.
- alert to changes in device configuration files.
- alert to changes to firmware versions and the automatic retrieval of device configuration.
- warn of unsaved changes in device configuration files.
- enable detailed comparison of device configuration files.
- identify trivial changes in device configuration files to be excluded when identifying differences between files.
- check device configuration files for best practice.
- access devices using Telnet and SSH.
- transport device configurations using FTP, TFTP, SCP and RCP protocols.
- integrate with ENA's permissions system.
- track configuration performance through the ENA UI.
- integrate with ENA reports.
- view archived configuration files.
- manage device configuration from the command line and through the ENA RESTful API.
To use Configuration Management, you must either be an Administrator or have the Configuration Management Administration tool permission.
