CiscoWorks Netconfig output location

Unanswered Question

Anyone know where the results or output of a Netconfig job go after the job runs?

I am trying to run a few show commands on some of our switches.  The job runs successfully but I don't know to find the results.

Thanks for the reply vergeerf.  Unfortunatetly, that URL only shows me the NetShow output, not the NetConfig output.  I found the location finally by searching through our CiscoWorks server:

to "run a few show commands on some of our switches" you better use NetShow not NetConfig..... but glad you found it :-)

Good point!  I hadn't considered running the Netshow option.  I'll check it out.

BTW, I was using the Adhoc option in Netconfig to run my "show" commands.

Vergeerf is right.  Don't use Netconfig to do this.  It's not geared toward the output piece.  Use Netconfig to do things like clear counters, trigger EEM policies, or reset VTY lines.  Use Netshow to run commands where you care about the actual output.

Is NetShow supported on LMS 2.5?  That's what we are running. Yeah don't laugh guys.  We don't have plan to upgrade since we are stepping up to using Solarwinds NCM.

No, not out of the box.  You'll need LMS 2.5.1 to get Netshow.  Neither LMS 2.5 or 2.5.1 is still supported anymore.  If you're serious about persuing LMS for show command support, download and install the 2.6 update.
