we have about 100 power-connect switches
is there any tool i can leverage that would gather switch configuration files without me having to log in to each and every switch?
seems like a nightmare. must be some easier way to do this
I talked with some of the people in our network support group, but it doesn't look like a tool of that sort exists. With that being the case, the best recommendation I could make is to script it.
switchPool = [list of switch IPs] logFile = open('/user/home/switchLog.txt'., 'w') for switch in switchPool: //SSH to host log = //command to show running config logfile.write(log)
That won't do the job by itself, but it may help you get started, and it's where I would start in setting this up in Python. OpenManage Network Manager may also provide this function, but I don't think that is a free software.
