The following commands are used to modify and declare the behavior of device templates in SolarWinds NCM. These commands modify the interaction between SolarWinds NCM and your network devices. Ensure you fully understand what modifications will do before modifying a device in production using these commands.

Property

Description

CustomPasswordPrompt

Allows you to specify the password prompt issued by a device in case NCM is having trouble recognizing the device's prompt (for example, due to unsupported characters).

DownloadConfig

Series of commands used to download a configuration from a device.

DownloadConfigIndirect

Series of commands used to download a configuration indirectly from a device using TFTP.

DownloadConfigIndirectSCP Series of commands used to download a configuration indirectly from a device using SCP.

EnableCommand

Allows you to declare a custom enable command for those devices that do not use Enable as the command.

EnableIdentifier

Only used when a device does not return the # character at the end of a prompt to indicate enable mode. Declare the value displayed while in enable mode for a device.

EnterCLI

Specifies the commands to send upon receiving the VirtualPrompt command to enter the CLI mode of the menu driven device. Use pre-command variables to declare the command values. For more information, see Pre-command and command template variables.

EnterConfigMode

ExitConfigMode

Series of commands used to exit the configuration mode of a device.

IPAddress

The IP address of the server where SolarWinds NCM is installed.

MenuBased

Specifies whether the device is menu- or CLI-based. If a device is menu-based and you can switch it to CLI from the menu, use the VirtualPrompt and EnterCLI commands to do so. Valid values are true or false.

MenuDrivenConfigStart

Allows you to declare a value after which the transmitted data is considered the config, requested from the menu-driven device. For example, in the Cisco VPN Concentrator device template, the declared value is ##########. The information sent after the ten hash signs is saved as the requested configuration file.

More

Specifies the More prompt in the rare instance that this prompt is not recognized automatically. Do not specify this command unless you are experiencing issues with paging.

Precommand

Specifies the device requires a pre-command. For more information, see Pre-command and command template variables.

Reboot

VirtualEnablePrompt

Allows you to specify a regular expression and search for the defined value in the entirety of a device response. This command is often used with menu-based devices, allowing you to locate a specific phrase returned by the device. When specified, ensure you also declare the MenuBased command as true or false.

VirtualPrompt

Specifies the command prompt that will be sent when the device is ready for command input. Use this command along with the MenuBased command to specify the exact prompt SolarWinds NCM should wait to receive before sending commands.
