SolarWinds NCM is a great configuration management product that I have used. With this product you can log in and make changes to almost any type of device (even the ones with number based menus). It has made things easy and saved time for us on a number of tasks. From password change on thousands of devices to tracking down an STP issue, NCM has helped us trace problems quickly and efficiently.
