You can create a custom type of configuration to download from relevant devices. To do this you must enable SolarWinds NCM to recognize the new type and modify the templates for devices from which you intend to download the new type of configuration.

All functions that operate on standard config types in SolarWinds NCM operate as well with custom config types, with the following exceptions:

  • The Overall Baseline vs. Running Config Conflicts chart is limited to the specified standard config types.
  • The Overall Running vs. Startup Config Conflicts chart is limited to the specified standard config types.

Enable a new config type for a device

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. Under Configs, click Configs.
  4. Under Config Types, enter a name for the new config type.
  5. Click Add New.
  6. Click Submit.
  7. See the Communication process diagrams to modify your device template with an appropriate statement.

NCM uses the show command to download configurations.
