My team leader wants me to come up with a process for deploying a brand new switch / router / ap / fw (whatever) with the company approved templates in RME. This process would also include steps to updeate the IOS to a crypto image.
Now in my manual process i can currently build up a new switch with upgraded IOS image in quite a short period of time, utilising saved config in txt format.
The ciscoworks process that im developing involves double handling a lot and still needing console configuration. IE
1. console and set IP and telnet credientials
2. Add device in Common services
3. Push IOS to device
4. Push relevant templates to device.
5. Re-IP device via console and send to site.
6. Update IP in CS....
Anyone have any other thoughts that can make the process a little more streamlined.....
