What ManageEngine offers as rConfig alternative?
Extensive multi-vendor support
rConfigsupports devices only through the username and password. There is no automatic category and vendor name detection. ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager has over 200 device templates to identify and categorize devices as and when they are discovered into the tool.
Advanced configuration and change management
Labelling a configuration, change notification, role-based access controls and reverting a faulty change are some of the features that are essential in configuration management. rConfig doesn’t have these features and does only basic configuration backups.
Proactive monitoring and corrective actions
Detecting a change in a device and automatically triggering a backup action, execution of a remediation cofiglet in response to a compliance policy violation are simple automations present in NCM which make managing configurations a lot easier. These features are not present in rConfig.
Customization and reliable support
It being an open-source software, there are going to be quite a number of times that an admin will have to make changes and customize. This customization requires support from the developers of a particular feature. But Email, telephone and ticket support is available only for the top-end version (paid version).
