Documentation forNetwork Configuration Manager
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.

Import network config files

You can import configuration files that you have already downloaded from your devices into NCM. NCM imports configuration files that use the following file formats:

  • NCM Archive: .Config
  • SolarWinds Cisco Config Downloader: .CiscoConfig
  • Text File: .txt
  • Configuration File: .cfg
  • Any file in ASCII text

To avoid overwriting other config files, make sure the configs you are importing have unique file names.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Network Configuration > Config Summary.
  2. In the NCM node list, click a node name to open the Node Details page.
  3. In the menu on the left, click the Configs icon .
  4. In the Config List widget, click Import Config.

    The Import Config page opens.

  5. (Optional.) Change the default Config Title and add comments.
  6. Click Choose File, browse to the config file, and select it.
  7. Click Submit.

    The imported file is listed in the Config List widget.
