1 Make sure changes made to running configs are saved

Sometimes configuration changes are only made to the in-memory config. However, if the device loses power, these changes are lost. That’s why it’s important to also save permanent configuration changes to the startup configuration. When you use network configuration management to compare the running config with the startup config, you can identify any changes that have not been saved.

2 Quickly identify and fix unauthorized or failed changes

Sometimes device configurations are changed without notice or authorization. These out-of-process changes can cause network problems. When you use Network Configuration Manager to compare device configurations against a baseline or prior version of the configuration, you can quickly identify where specific changes were made. This allows you to quickly and confidently reverse any unwanted changes.

3 Help ensure compliance with policies and standards

To make devices more secure, they are often configured according to risk prevention controls. For example, do all devices have secure passwords? Are only trusted devices allowed to access the network? Network Configuration Manager helps you quickly and reliably determine whether network devices are using these required controls. Config compare lets you compare each config to a custom policy file; Network Configuration Manager can determine whether any controls are missing or have been improperly implemented. If a problem is found, Network Configuration Manager will highlight it, allowing for quick remediation.
