Device Template file naming convention

Solution 1 - using tmsh shell

 

Prerequisite: The user account that NCM uses to connect to the device must have "tmsh" set for terminal access: Configure from F5 GUI: Main > System > Users.

  1. Depending on your version of NCM, use the relevant steps to add the following template. For information on using device templates, see Creating and Modifying Device Templates in the NCM Administrator Guide.

  2. Use the following lines as the actual content of the template:
<Configuration-Management Device="F5" SystemOID=" 1.3.6.1.4.1.3375">
        <Commands>
                <Command Name="RESET" Value="modify cli preference pager disabled"/>
                <Command Name="VirtualPrompt" Value="#"/>
                <Command Name="PreCommand" Value="y"/>
                <Command Name="Reboot" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="EnterConfigMode" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="ExitConfigMode" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="DownloadConfig" Value="tmsh -q show running-config"/>
                <Command Name="UploadConfig" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="DownloadConfigIndirect" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="UploadConfigIndirect" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="EraseConfig" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="SaveConfig" Value=""/>
                <Command Name="Version" Value="tmsh -q show sys version"/>
        </Commands>
</Configuration-Management>

Note: To copy content without line numbers, hover over the text and click the view source button (View Source). This opens a new window where you can select and copy text without any formatting or line numbering.

 

 

***Note***

The credentials set up in NCM to log into this device will need to be sufficient to issue the commands.

Root level is recommended if not required.

Solution 2 - using Advanced Shell

 

Prerequisite: The user account that NCM uses to connect to the device must have "Advanced shell" set for terminal access: Configure from F5 GUI: Main > System > Users.

NCM cannot store the desired UCS file in the database, but one may be able to use the Execute scripts feature in NCM to back it up:
