Thank you for your quick response. The document helps but it's not quite what I'm looking for. We have occassional situations where multiple engineers will make changes to a switch that will have an adverse effect on one another without them knowing about each other's change that will be performed. If there is a way that messages will appear after log-in that would alert the engineer of future changes. An editable list would be preferred. Messages could be added and deleted as the changes are scheduled completed.
i.e. "message" name, phone #, date
1. The OS/IOS will be upgraded. John Doe xxx.xxx 032807
2. Adding a WAP VLAN 901 etc....
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I agree with 2nd poster..... too many chef's equate to a very high risk related to live production gear. Yuch.
There is an option where you could create a text file on a tftp server and use a menu option that might say "1. this weeks change schedule" and when the menu option is selected it simply sends the output to the terminal/console line.
Someone would have to of course administer/update the text file.
So with that said, why not have a weekly email created and sent to all engineers, detailing change schedules. Since it has to be typed, why not stay off the live gear. or maybe an intranet website with a change schedule.
The thought of a different schedule in a text file, for more than 1 router/switch seems to add a very unacceptable level of administrative overhead. Put the change schedule in one place and beat the offenders heartily when chaos occurs.
Displaying the Contents of a File
To display the contents of any readable file, including a file on a remote file system, use the more [/ascii | /binary | /ebcdic] file-url privileged EXEC command:
