When nodes are added to NCM, you can download and edit the configuration files of those devices, compare configuration changes, and create an archive of config files for backup. NCM recognizes any configuration file with a minimum of 11 lines as valid for file transfer. You can change this default value if you plan to work with configuration files that have fewer lines.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. In the Configs section, select Configs.
  4. Under Config Transfer, use the slider bar to adjust the value for Config Min Length, or type the new value.
    This setting changes the default value for the minimum number of lines recognized by NCM as valid for download.

Use the Simultaneous Downloads/Uploads value to throttle the load that a big job could put on the network. By default, this value is set to 25 download/upload sessions.

If you plan to use NCM to back up device configurations that are in binary file format, complete the Setup required for Binary Configs. Editing or running comparisons on binary configuration files are not currently an option in NCM.
