This section is applicable to the following editions of IT360 - Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition (Probes only) and MSP Edition (Probes only).
The below topics are discussed here:
The Configuration Management plug-in in IT360 is a comprehensive solution for easy network change and configuration management. It offers multi-vendor network device configuration, continuous monitoring of configuration changes, notifications on respective changes, detailed operation audit and trails, easy and safe recovery to trusted configurations, automation of configuration tasks and insightful reporting.
This plug-in effectively manages network devices such as switches, routers, firewalls, wireless access points, integrated access devices etc., from multiple vendors. It imports the network devices from IT360 and builds up an inventory database, thus enabling IT administrators to take control of configuring the devices from a central console. The added advantage of this Configuration Management plug-in is that it eliminates the need to re-configure users and mail servers and allows the inbuilt configurations in IT360 to be used.
Instead of installing the Configuration Management plug-in newly, you can also integrate an existing Standalone Device Expert setup with IT360. For that you need to follow the below procedure:
The Standalone Device Expert should be upgraded to the version supported by IT360 or above.
Stop the standalone Device Expert service.
Execute the backupDB.bat script available under the '<DeviceExpert_Home>\bin' directory to start the data backup.
Stop the IT360-Networks service.
i.e., execute the following in the command prompt: <IT360_Home>\networks\ncm\bin>restoreDB.bat <Backup_path>\140109-1444.zip(provide the latest zip file)
e.g., <IT360_Home>\networks\ncm\bin>restoreDB.bat <DeviceExpert_Home>\Backup\140109-1444.zip (provide the latest zip file)
Start IT360-Networks service.
If IT360 (Professional / Enterprise Probe) is installed in HTTPs mode and NCM plugin is installed before the Networks module start-up, follow the below steps to enable SSL mode for NCM Plugin.
If IT360 is enabled with HTTPs mode and NCM plugin is integrated with it, keep the Networks module down, perform the below steps and then start the Networks module.
While importing third party SSL Certificate into IT360, with the Configuration Management plug-in installed in it; make sure the Networks module is down and follow the below steps to enable SSL mode for the Plugin.
Copy it360.keystore file from <IT360Home>/networks/conf/ to <IT360Home>/networks/ncm/conf/.
