Hi,

Our more than 1500 devices are managed by LMS. Most of them use crypto IOS but some of them don't. How can i select from inventory ( report or group selection ) the devices which do not use crypto IOS.

We have to upgrade them and introduce the SSH to its.


Thanks in advance!

You can build a user-defined group in RME for this. For example, to match IOS devices which are running non-crypto images, this ruleset should work:


Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "IOS" EXCLUDE

Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "k9"

Hi,


Thanks. It is usable mainly for routers.


The following IOS description of 2950 switch is the following.


c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA9.bin


it's crypto IOS. May be does "k" mean the crypto??


Regards,

Yes, images with a 'k' (usually "k9") indicates crypto.


The problem is, the description can contain another 'k', and the image may not be a crypto image. You can try just matching on 'k', but you may have to tweak things if you get a false-positive.

You can make this request through your account team. They can open a PERS (Product Enhancement) request on your behalf.

You can also try this pattern which should properly match more non-crypto IOS devices:


Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "IOS" EXCLUDE

Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "k9" EXCLUDE

Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "k2" EXCLUDE

Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "k8"
