updating multiple routers

Unanswered Question
Apr 10th, 2007

we have over 70 remote sites that have 871 routers w/ nearly identical configs on them. i am looking for a tool to update multiple routers with some form of ease. is there currently any tools available to do this. I could see using .bat files to do this but was wondering if there is anything cisco uses for this

I have this problem too.

Cisco's CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) includes NetConfig - a part of Resource Manager Essentials (aka RME) - which allows you to make configuration changes to one or more devices. For more information about CiscoWorks LMS see http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps2425/index.html.

Alternatively, you can use perl (http://www.perl.org) and the excellent Net::Telnet::Cisco module (http://search.cpan.org/~joshua/Net-Telnet-Cisco-1.10/Cisco.pm) to write a script which telnets into a bunch of Cisco devices and implements your changes for you.

We use both CiscoWorks LMS and perl scripting - using the former for smaller jobs and the latter for large scale configuration changes and roll-outs.
