You can now use configuration commands that were previously saved as configuration templates to create Audit Templates that can be applied to specific NetScaler instances. While creating an audit template, you can drag and drop previously saved configuration templates into the Commands field, and edit the template to suit your requirements. You can then apply the audit template to specific NetScaler instances. NetScaler MAS compares these instances with the audit template and reports any mismatch. This process helps you identify errors and rectify them in a timely manner.
You can create configuration templates while creating a new job and saving a set of configuration commands as a template. When you save these templates on the Create Jobs page, they are automatically displayed on the Create Template page.
For example, consider a basic load balancing configuration for which you add a load balancing virtual server, add two services, and bind the services to the virtual server.
This example uses the following commands:
add lb vserver servername HTTP ipaddress portnumber
add service servicename1 ipaddress1 HTTP 80
add service servicename2 ipaddress2 HTTP 80
bind lb vserver servername servicename1
bind lb vserver servername servicename2
The audit template appears in the Audit Templates list and is run every 12 hours against the configurations of the specified instances.
