Unanswered Question

I've got LMS3.1 fully patched on Solaris 10 fully patched. I'm moving the NMS Server so I need to change the SNMP Community string and ACL on every device we have (1000 mix of IOS and CatOS over several platforms). Although I've never used Netconfig before it looks fairly straightforward. Which is what worries me. As I've had direct experience of someone distributing the same config to every router on the network before, my question is: Is there a process/checklist to follow "gotten by experience" please?

If the gist of your concern is about "someone distributing the same config to every router on the network" unintentionally or otherwise, that risk can be mitigated by setting up "Approvers" for NetConfig jobs at RME - Admin - Approval.

Ahhh! Interesting! I wasn't aware of this and will investigate implementing it. Thanks very much.
