Benefits of network configuration management


With too many IT shops to manage manually, administrators end up dealing with network downtime caused due to erroneous configuration changes. 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 at the time of need. You’ll also be able to compare configurations and see what has changed, roll back any erroneous configuration changes, and more.

How network configuration management works


In a heterogeneous network of different types of devices, the configuration files need to be regularly backed up and stored for use at the time of crisis—i.e., a network issue due to a configuration change or device failure. Automated discovery in SolarWinds NCM downloads device configurations regardless of the vendor, and regular configuration backups can then be scheduled to maintain an up-to-date archive. Execution of scripts for regular or frequent tasks on single or multiple devices replaces manual work and eliminates human error. The Transfer status report helps track and monitor upload, download, and execution of script status of all devices in the network.

Implementing network configuration tools


Automated solutions or network configuration management tools can notify you whenever there is a change in device configuration, helping you quickly replace a failed device by stacking the replacement hardware and uploading the configuration from the archive. Network configuration management software like SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager not only takes out the effort of managing numerous device configurations in a heterogeneous network, but is designed to also help minimize network downtime.
