Groups in LMS based on protocol used by RME

Unanswered Question
Dec 4th, 2009

My customer would like to have posibly dynamic groups that hold device reachable by TELNET, SSH, and device the support both protocols.

The TELNET group should be monitored to see if the devices can be upgrade to use SSH

The group holding devices supporting both protocols should be monitored to see TELNET getting disabled on them.

RME knows how the configurations were collected but can this be used to group the devices?



I have this problem too.

Thanks Joe,

I will see if my customer is interested in making an enhancement request for this.

I suppose I could find out ssh capabilities using the baseline templates stuff.

Could I use that to create a group?

No, config information cannot be used to create dynamic groups.  The best you could do is create an RME group to match on the "K9" string in the image description.  This will indicate the device is running a crypto image, and could potentially have SSH enabled.

Device.Image.Sys_Description contains "K9"

Thanks again Joe,

Thats a very usefull tip to get the SSH capable devices grouped together
