I have a router 1760 installed in a remote site with DSL, a serial link and LAN users behind it. Under normal conditions it should avoid using the DSL interface to access the Internet for security reasons. It should route all traffic via the serial link to the HQ where users have all services they need including Internet access.
This site, however, is included in our D&R plan and therefore we need that under special conditions (HQ down, for instance) I could easyly reconfigure the router to meet the requirements. I might need to change interfaces status, fw policies, routing table, etc to make the router use the DSL Internet access and allow users to surf the web and incoming mail to come trhu.
The problem is that I want any of my IT peers to do that and not all of them are proficient with Cisco administration. So I thought of some kind of script that could be automatically run when somebody logins in the router with the right account and the right password. For instance I could have all the regular administration accounts and also accounts like: "disaster-status" and "normal-status" and each of them will run the necessary commands to reconfigure the router without the user needing to write one single command... not even "enable".
I remember one Cisco course that I attended that we had a remote lab and the topology of the lab was changed just by logging in the switches with a user that automaticaly, without we interacting, changed the switch configuration (VLANS, etc.) and therefore changed the network topology.
Is this possible? any ideas?
Regards and thanks!
