Overview

Can NCM work with this device?  A common question that is posed. This article will go over basic requirements needed for NCM to work with a device.

Environment

All NCM versions

Detail

There are a few basic things to look for to determine if NCM can download a config from a device:

If these are met, there is a good chance NCM can, but even if these requirements are met, a custom device template may be required.

 

- Does the device have a CLI?  

- From that CLI, can one issue a command to download a configuration?

- Does the device follow industry standards in terms of echos, TCP/IP, VTY and others?

- To download a config, NCM needs to access the device via a vty session and issue a command for the the device directly.

 

NCM supported connections:

- Telnet and SSH V1 and V2

- Transfers can be made via Telnet, SSH, TFTP, SCP

 

See this link for details on how NCM connects via ssh and its supported encryption.

Note:

 

NCM does not have a mechanism to run a script via Windows CMD, power shell or other scripting tools.
