Network Configuration Manager
Reduce cost, save work hours, and remain compliant with automated network configuration management and backup
Config management doesn’t have to be a slow, error-prone, manual process.
Do you find yourself asking…
Do I know exactly what I have installed in my network today? Are my inventory lists up to date?
Stop worrying whether inventory spreadsheets and lists are accurate, up-to-date, and reliable. With SolarWinds® Network Configuration Manager (NCM), you can quickly build an accurate inventory of your network devices by using network scanning and discovery to obtain up-to-date information on all network devices.
When config changes cause problems, how can I easily know what changed and who made the changes?
When it comes to network configuration management, it’s critical to quickly and precisely compare configurations for a number of reasons. Some examples could be to check against security policies, to ensure there are no discrepancies between running and saved configs, and to quickly identify and fix unauthorized or failed changes.
Are all my network device configs backed up?
With networking technology, as with many other aspects of IT, things go wrong from time to time. Equipment failure, human error, and so on. The key is to have the right tools to help minimize the damage and time lost. With Network Configuration Manager (NCM), you get just that. Whether it’s swapping out network gear or recovering from a bad config change, you can quickly find and restore configs you previously backed up.
How can I stay on top of managing multiple vendors network gear in multiple locations?
Automation of network configuration management simplifies processes like scheduling regular backups, highlighting configuration errors, executing scripts, and maintaining organized configuration archives, so you can easily locate a backup file when you need it. Network Configuration Manager (NCM) takes the effort out of managing numerous device configurations in a heterogeneous network and minimizes network downtime.
How can I manage all my network device configurations with speed and automation?
With Network Configuration Manager (NCM), you can ensure your network device files are backed up to protect against disaster scenarios. You can also work with templates to create “gold-standard” configs to roll out to new gear and obtain real-time change detection of config files.
How do I keep IOS upgrades from taking too much of my time?
SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) can help by automatically identifying vulnerabilities in production firmware and then smoothly guide you through the process of upgrading obsolete Cisco IOS images in minutes—not hours or days. NCM automatically tracks firmware versions and correlates them with CVEs published in the National Vulnerability Database. When a potential vulnerability is identified, NCM will alert you and guide you through the Cisco firmware upgrade process.
