Hello to you all,

Can someone direct me on how to create jobs to download/update the configs on the remote devices on a regular schedule ?

Also, I will like to create inventory reports on network devices, what is the simplest way to do this ? (Does Ciscoworks limit the number of devices you can discover also ?)

To schedule periodic config collection, go to RME > Admin > Config Mgmt > Collection Settings. The recommendation is to do config polling (looking for changes) nightly, and collection every week.

As soon as a device is added into RME, RME will perform an inventory collection. So inventory reports should be available almost immediately. To schedule periodic collection, go to RME > Admin > Inventory > System Job Schedule. A default schedule should already be setup for you for polling.

As for a limit, the short answer is yes, but it depends on your version and your license as to the actual device count limit.

The installation guides for each version detail server requirements in terms of number of supported devices.
