I wasn't sure where to start this conversation since there doesn't seem to be a "General" discussion board.
I just want to see what some of you professionals, and everyone else prefer to use when it comes to managing your awesome Cisco gear.
I myself like the control and precision of the CLI. It makes me feel more in touch with the equipment and more in control. With a GUI, I feel like I'm opting for the easy way out.
I know for people like myself who work in professional environments and must meet deadlines, figuring out how to implement new Cisco technologies can be difficult when using the CLI rather than the GUI, but the time sacrificed in learning the CLI and the satisfaction I get from "manually" configuring everything is well worth it.
Any input would be appreciated.
