Configuring SSH/Telnet Credentials for SolarWinds NCM to Manage Devices

Overview of SSH/Telnet Credentials

If you want to use SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) to manage devices (for example, backing up or restoring configurations), configure SSH/Telnet credentials for SolarWinds NCM to manage devices and add the devices to SolarWinds NCM.

SSH/Telnet credentials include the login credentials (user name and password), communication transfer protocol, and transfer ports.

NOTE:

SSH/Telnet credentials used by SolarWinds NCM must be the same as the SSH/Telnet parameter settings on Huawei switches. Otherwise, SolarWinds NCM cannot manage the switches.

Methods of Configuring SSH/Telnet Credentials
  • Global default SSH/Telnet credentials: If you do not specify SSH/Telnet credentials when adding devices to SolarWinds NCM, SolarWinds NCM uses the global default SSH/Telnet credentials to manage the devices.
  • SSH/Telnet connection profile: SolarWinds NCM can use one SSH/Telnet connection profile to manage multiple devices.

Procedure

  1. Click SETTINGS > All Settings.
  2. Under PRODUCT SPECIFIC SETTINGS, click NCM Settings.

    • Configuring global default SSH/Telnet credentials

      # Under Global Device Defaults, click Global Device Defaults, set parameters as required, and click SUBMIT.

    • Creating an SSH/Telnet connection profile

      # Under Global Device Default, click Connection Profiles. Click CREATE NEW to create an SSH/Telnet connection profile. Set parameters as required and click SUBMIT.

Adding Devices to SolarWinds NCM

Context

If you want to use SolarWinds NCM to manage devices (for example, backing up or restoring configurations), configure SSH/Telnet credentials for SolarWinds NCM to manage devices and add the devices to SolarWinds NCM.

Procedure

  • When adding a single device, add it to SolarWinds NCM.
  • When adding automatically discovered devices, add them to SolarWinds NCM.
  • If a device is added to SolarWinds but not added to SolarWinds NCM, add this device to SolarWinds NCM.
    1. Click SETTINGS > Manage Nodes.
    2. Select one or more devices, and click EDIT PROPERTIES.
    3. Select Yes from the drop-down list of Manage node(s) with NCM.

      • If multiple devices are selected, you can only use the global default SSH/Telnet credentials.
      • If a single device is selected, you can use the global default SSH/Telnet credentials, an existing or a created new SSH/Telnet connection profile, or SSH/Telnet credentials specified for this device.

    4. Click SUBMIT.

Downloading Device Configuration Files

Procedure

  1. Click MY DASHBORADS > CONFIGS > Configuration Management.
  2. Select one or more devices, and click DOWNLOAD. Select a type of configuration files to be downloaded. Running indicates configuration files running on the devices, and Startup indicates configuration files used for startup of devices.
  3. In the DOWNLOAD CONFIGS dialog box that is displayed, click YES. SolarWinds NCM starts to download configuration files.
  4. Click a time point in the Name column to check configuration files downloaded at this time point.

Daily Backing Up Device Configuration Files

Procedure

  1. Click MY DASHBORADS > CONFIGS > Jobs.
  2. Click CREATE NEW JOB.
    1. Set the job name, set Job Type to Download Configs from Devices, set the execution interval, and then click NEXT.

    2. Select nodes to which this job is to be executed and click NEXT.

    3. Select the notification mode after the job is executed, and click NEXT.

    4. Select a type of configuration files to be downloaded and click NEXT.

    5. Verify the job settings and click FINISH.

  3. The job is created and will be executed based on the configured schedule. You can also select the job and click START JOB to execute this job immediately.

  4. Click MY DASHBORADS > CONFIGS > Configuration Management. Click a time point in the Name column to check configuration files that are backed up at this time point.

Uploading Configuration Files to Devices

Procedure

  1. Click MY DASHBORADS > CONFIGS > Configuration Management.
  2. Select a node to which a configuration file is to be uploaded, and click UPLOAD
  3. Select a configuration file to be uploaded. If needed, edit the configuration file in the pane on the right.

  4. Click Advanced. Select one option and then click UPLOAD to upload the configuration file.

  5. After the configuration file is uploaded successfully, an upload record is displayed.

Uploading Configuration Changes to Devices

Method of Uploading Configuration Changes
  • Edit the configuration file of a device on SolarWinds and then upload the edited configuration file to the device.
  • Execute a script to upload configuration changes to the device.

Procedure

  • Edit the configuration file of a device on SolarWinds and then upload the edited configuration file to the device. The following uses creation of VLAN 100 as an example.
    1. Downloading Device Configuration Files.
    2. Before uploading the configuration file, check the VLAN configuration on S12704-1.

      [S12704-1] display vlan summary
      Static VLAN:
      Total 6 static VLAN. 
        1 12 to 16  
                  
      Dynamic VLAN: 
      Total 0 dynamic VLAN.
                  
      Reserved VLAN:
      Total 0 reserved VLAN.

    3. Upload the configuration file to the device. Select the configuration file downloaded in step 1 and edit it.

    4. After the configuration file is uploaded successfully, check the VLAN configuration on S12704-1 again. It is found that VLAN 100 has been created on S12704-1.

      [S12704-1] display vlan summary
      Static VLAN:
      Total 7 static VLAN. 
        1 12 to 16 100 
                  
      Dynamic VLAN: 
      Total 0 dynamic VLAN.
                  
      Reserved VLAN:
      Total 0 reserved VLAN.

  • Execute a script to upload configuration changes to a device. The following uses creation of VLAN 100 as an example.
    1. Click MY DASHBORADS > CONFIGS > Configuration Management.
    2. Select a device and click EXECUTE SCRIPT.
    3. Before executing the script, check the VLAN configuration on S12704-1.

      [S12704-1] display vlan summary
      Static VLAN:
      Total 6 static VLAN. 
        1 12 to 16  
                  
      Dynamic VLAN: 
      Total 0 dynamic VLAN.
                  
      Reserved VLAN:
      Total 0 reserved VLAN.

    4. Edit the script content, that is, commands you want to execute on the device, and then click EXECUTE.

    5. In the EXECUTE SCRIPT dialog box that is displayed, click YES.
    6. After the script is executed, check the VLAN configuration on S12704-1 again. It is found that VLAN 100 has been created on S12704-1.

      [S12704-1] display vlan summary
      Static VLAN:
      Total 7 static VLAN. 
        1 12 to 16 100
