Overview

This article describes how to set up the SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) Real-Time Change Detection. 

Environment

All NCM versions

Steps

  1. Configure the devices to send a syslog or trap to the NCM server. Include the source interface with the IP address of the device as it is added to NCM.
  2. Verify that the default rule in the syslog viewer has the correct location of the RTN forwarder. 

    This is generally a good place to check if the application was migrated from one server to another.

  3. Verify that the rule is enabled.
  4. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  5. Click Settings.
  6. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  7. Click Configure Real-Time Change Detection.
  8. Complete the steps as required.
  9. When completed, click Submit. 
    Not all rules will be applicable to all Vendor no devices.  So it is likely one will need to create a new rule based on the applicable syslog message from the particular device.
