Executing Commands using Configuration Profiles

Dec 18, 2015

Configuration Management module in Command Center enables you to execute various configuration commands over multiple devices at the same time. You can create configuration profiles, which are templates that you can use to execute configuration tasks. The configuration profiles allow you to import configuration from existing devices or existing configuration profiles. After the commands are imported, they are displayed in the Commands section in "Add Configuration" page. You can now choose to add or modify or delete the configuration commands to create a new configuration profile.

The configuration profiles created can be applied to a device or a set of discovered devices. When you choose to apply the configuration on multiple devices, the configuration profiles will be executed in parallel over the set of devices.
