Managing network configurations is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and is also available in a standalone module, Network Configuration Manager (NCM). Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and NCM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Execute an NCM config change template

When you execute a config change template, you select the nodes that template runs against and enter other values in a run-time wizard.

Before you can execute a config change template against a device, the device must have been inventoried in NCM.

You must have the NCM role of Administrator, Engineer, or WebUploader to execute a config change template.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Network Configuration > Config Change Templates.
  2. Select a template in list.
  3. Click Define Variables & Run.
  4. Select the target nodes.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Enter values in the input fields.

    Input fields are different for each config change template, and they depend on the purpose of the template. For example, in a template that enables NetFlow data exporting for a set of Cisco devices, you might be asked to enter the IP address of the relevant NetFlow collector and the port on which your target device exports flow data.

  7. Click Next.
  8. If you want to see the CLI commands for a device, expand the device list and click Show Commands in New Window.
  9. If you want to save your changes to the startup config, select Write config to NVRAM after execute.
  10. Click Execute.
