Looking to compare latest NPM features with previous versions of NPM?
The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
For NCM to manage your device configs, you need to discover those network devices and add them to Orion for monitoring.
SolarWinds recommends that you begin by discovering a limited number of core routers and switches so that you can learn how to manage them with NCM. Then you can add more devices to scale your deployment.
If you are unsure if you discovered any network devices, log in to NPM and click My Dashboards > Network > Network Summary. The All Nodes managed by NPM resource lists all network devices discovered and added to Orion for monitoring.
The examples in this guide use the Tex-3750.aus.lab Cisco router to illustrate how to back up and make changes to a config.
