Using Ciscoworks to audit for specific config items

I am looking to have Ciscoworks tell me if a couple configuration lines exist on all my wireless access points. Can someone point me as to how to accomplish this.

Re: Using Ciscoworks to audit for specific config items

Assuming you have LMS 2.5 or higher, you can use the Baseline Template feature of RME to accomplish this. The idea is that you first create a template that contains the mandatory lines that should be present in all your devices. For example:

+ logging server

+ service password-encryption

+ tacacs-server host

Then you run a job that compares all applicable devices against this template. The resulting report will show you the compliant and non-compliant devices. You will then be given the option to deploy the missing configuration lines to those devices.

This is a very simplistic overview of config baselining in RME. You should checkout the online help for much more details. The baseline feature can be found under RME > Config Mgmt > Archive Mgmt > Baseline Templates.
