  • Configuration File: .cfg
  • Any file in ASCII text

To import a config file, complete the following steps:

  1. Click My Dashboards > Network Configuration > Config Summary.
  2. In the NCM Node List widget, 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.
