Parameterized Templates for SNMP Chassis-ID

Unanswered Question

I ask for some qualification please.

My customer has 5000+ devices and wishes to populate the 'snmp-server chassis-id' with serial no.s of each device.

I'm thinking of exporting the serial no. into an XML file and using that file for the Parameterized Template.

Has anyone done this before; does it work or is there a simpler method perhaps?

Kind Regards

This should work provided all the devices in question are IOS devices. Your parameterized command file would look something like:




Then your template would be:

snmp-server chassis-id $chassisId
