Standby ip and Template

Unanswered Question

Hello All,

Thanks in advance to those who even read this topic and Many thanks to those who will reply. Here is my problem:-

I have to search for devices which do not have standby ip authentication setup. I have tried multiple permutation and combinations to setup a template both basic and advanced to match the standby <group number> ip authentication command in device config. But sadly all devices show as compliant.

Can someone help me with making a template to achieve this?

Many thanks

Do you mean the "standby authentication " command?  It would be helpful to see a current running config to know exactly what you want to match on.  I'd also like to see one of your existing templates to get a better idea what you're trying to do.  In my head, I'm picturing something like:

Submode : interface [#GigabitEthernet.*#]


+ [#standby 1 authentication (md5|text) .*#]

Well, that will not work as you are not using proper regular expressions.  Try:

Submode : interface [#(Vlan|.*Ethernet).*#]


+ [#standby \d+ authentication .*#]
