Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM)

SolarWinds NCM is principally used to perform configuration backup but also to perform global configuration update like a password change or SNMP community update.
  • Configuration backup
  • Policy violations
  • Execution script
  • A more pre-defined script would be welcome.
  • NCM jobs are quite slow to run.
  • Chart designs are old school.
  • Time saved when configuration restore is needed.
  • EOL inventory
  • Global configuration update.
It's really important to keep a configuration backup of network devices in case of hardware failure. SolarWinds NCM is a great tool to backup configuration and restore if needed. It can also give us useful information about EOS and EOL of each network device which can give us an idea of which one will have to be replaced soon.
