Excel template for auto switch configuration?

Unanswered Question
Mar 4th, 2009

Does anyone know if there is an excel template that has basic router or switch configuration commands where all you do is type in the value or option then it exports into text or csv? I'm not interested in gui interfaces.

see attached..

It probably does not exist b/c of changes IOS version as well as differences b/t models but I'm just curious.

Have you tried using Smartports Macros?

Configuring Smartports Macros


This is dependent on the model of your switch. This is applicable to the low-end switch up to the high-end ones.

To verify, just type in the command "show parser macro brief".

Hope this helps you.

I've created a small macro for you to use.

macro name MyMacro

hostname $host

clock timezone PST -8

username admin password 7 $password

ip domain-name $dom-name

# Keywords: $host

# Keywords: $password

# Keywords: $dom-name

If you need to invoke this macro, do the following:

conf t

#macro global apply MyMacro $host MYSWITCH $password Cisco $dom-name acme.cayote.com

Does this help?
