Using CiscoWorks LMS to perform bulk configuration comparisons...

Unanswered Question

We are trying to find a way to compare (part) of a running-configuration on 150+ routers at 150+ physically disparate sites against a known configuration that we have on-hand here in the network management centre.

We are running CiscoWorks LMS, and we are wondering if there is a feature within CiscoWorks LMS that allows us to perform a bulk comparison then report on which devices have differences in their configuration and *what* the differences are per-device.

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

This would be perfect for the baseline template feature in RME. Go to RME > Config Mgmt > Archive Mgmt > Baseline Templates, and follow the online help to turn your "gold master" configuration template into a baseline. Then you can compare that baseline to all of your devices to see which are compliant, and which will need what commands deployed to them to make them compliant.
