This article describes how to set up a job and save results to a file.


NCM version 7.4 and later


  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console.
  2. Go to Settings > All Settings.
  3. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  4. Under Advanced, click Advanced Settings.
  5. Under Network Share Settings, select the Use custom credential to give NCM write access checkbox, enter your credentials, and click Submit.
  6. Return to the NCM Settings page.
  7. Under Configs, click Configs.
  8. Click Jobs.
  9. Select a job and click Edit.
  10. Set up the example executive command script.
    1. Set up the schedule, and click Next.


    2. Select the nodes for the job, and click Next.

      In this example, Dynamic Selection was selected. The job runs on all Cisco devices currently in NCM and any node identified as Cisco that is added to NCM in the future.


    3. Select the Save Results To File checkbox and validate the path to verify that NCM can access the path. If you are saving the file to a network share, enter the correct universal naming convention (UNC) path.

      For example:


      The file directory must currently exist, as NCM will not create a directory for you.


    4. Enter the command you need to run on the device(s).


    5. Review the job summary, and click Finish.


  11. Run the job and verify that the results were written to a file.

    Below is an example of the results in the text file.

    If required, you can configure NCM to email you the results. Otherwise, you can retrieve the results from the file to use as a report.
