management, Command Center downloads the configuration and license files and
SSL certificate files from each discovered device and stores these files in the
database. By default, Command Center downloads the files during every discovery
or rediscovery of a device. However, you can configure the inventory settings
feature to download the configuration and license files in the following
- When Command Center
receives the "save config" trap.
- During specific intervals
set by the user.
- During a backup operation
initiated by the user from the Device Properties page.
You can also
configure inventory settings to specify the number of copies of the downloaded
files you want Command Center to store in the database. For example, you can
choose to store only one copy each of the configuration and license files that
are older than one week. In this case, Command Center stores the last
downloaded file set.
Note: By default,
every file that is downloaded is stored in the database, and Command Center
maintains the last 10 copies of the files.
