TMS Provisioning Templates w/Custom Commands

I know that if you want to use custom commands in a TMS Provisioning Template that you need to have it in XML format.

How can I put in the "systemtools rootsettings" command into XML format?  Simply put, we have 20+ systems, and I'm trying to keep myself from SSH into each and every single system, if I have to I will, but if I could put this into our template that we normally push out when we get new systems, it will save alot of time and help us out greatly.

systemtools rootsettings

usage: rootsettings [on/serial/off/never/get]

Command to control root user availability:

  get               obtain current setting

  off               root user is not available

  never             root user permanently turned off

  serial [password] root user is available on serial port only

  on [password]     root user is available on all ports.

Thanks! Patrick

TMS Provisioning Templates w/Custom Commands

Hi Patrik,

It won't be possible. "systemtools" is not a command accessible through the API like xcommand or xconfiguration.

You can always write a script, but that's not that easy if you never did it before; most difficult part will be to insert the password automatically.

Good luck!

Re: TMS Provisioning Templates w/Custom Commands

Thanks for the reply, I want to turn off root, as I found on some if not most of our systems, it is currently ON.  I guess I'll need to go to each system one by one then.

I noticed that in the E20s, that there is a rootsettings command if you type in ? to bring up a list of commands, is it possible with an E20?  The other systems we have are C-Series, which is what the systemtools command refeers to.

Update - I just went through all of our C-Series systems, an they all had their root account ON, when we purchased these units, they came to use with TC4.1.2.  I thought after TC4.0.0 the root account was disabled by default according to this security advisory: cisco-sa-20110202-tandberg.html.

Does the E20s come with their root account OFF by default, I remember another advisory sometime back about their root command during a software update, it was noted in the release notes, can't rememeber the details though.
