After you discover and add devices to the Orion platform for monitoring, you also need to add the devices to NCM. When you add a device to NCM, you configure a connection profile that establishes a line of communication between NCM and the node you want to manage. Communication is established by Telnet or SSH protocols.

Before you begin:

  • Locate the login credentials for the node you want to add to NCM.
  • Determine whether NCM communicates with the router by way of Telnet or SSH.
  • Identify the Telnet or SSH ports used for communication.

The following example illustrates how to add the Tex-3750.lab.aus router to NCM for management. This router has already been added to, and is monitored by, the Orion platform and now needs to be added to NCM.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Node & Group Management, click Manage Nodes.

  3. Select all of the devices that you want to bring under NCM management, and click Edit Properties.

    This example adds the Tex-3750.aus.lab router under NCM management.

  4. In the Manage Node(s) with NCM field, select Yes.
  5. Enter the connection profile credentials and then click Test to make sure there is a valid connection between NCM and the router.

  6. When a successful connection is made, click Submit.

    The results are displayed on the Managed Nodes page.

  7. To verify the router was successfully added, view the NCM - Licensed column.
