Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM)

It is used to obtain switch backups and validate configuration changes. It has been of great help, referring to an erroneous configuration problem, if it had not been, chaos would have been generated in the plant. I use it for the administration of 280 switches backup and it works perfectly. SolarWinds [Network Configuration Manager] NCM is a great addition to the tool bag. Having the ability to scan configurations and make changes on the fly across multiple devices is an immense time saver. Another great future is version caching [which] allows you to see all the changes that have been made and revert if necessary.
  • Network device configuration backup

  • Reduce configuration errors
  • Improve network reliability

If it has been used and it has been functional since it reduces the work time by more than half, making the process faster, safer, and more precise, carrying out not so complex and functional processes referring to configurations of multiple devices at the same time in an agile way. It is a fairly good range of products, I have been using the different products for about 1 years and they have all worked excellent for me, it seems to me that it is a fairly complete suite that facilitates my tasks and monitoring processes, being today a useful tool for my work nowadays.
