Knowing when a configuration has changed and locating specific changes is time consuming

Do start and running configs match?

Important config changes can be lost if they are not saved to the startup config and the device is restarted.

Can you see out-of-process changes?

Are network problems due to unapproved or out-of-process configuration changes? How can you know?

Do configs comply with standards?

Are your network devices configured according to risk and regulatory policies and operating standards?

Always know when a configuration has changed and what was changed

  1. Make sure changes made to running configs are saved

    Compare NVRAM (running) with startup (saved) configs to identify changes that should be saved.

  2. Quickly identify and fix unauthorized or failed changes

    Compare configs to baselines to identify and reverse unwanted changes.

  3. Ensure compliance with policies and standards

    Know whether security and risk controls are properly configured on network devices.

  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.

Once we build the router using the standard config, I can see when an engineer makes a change, and then I can identify if that’s an issue and use Network Configuration Manager to autocorrect it."
