From 10.4.2.1, When the privileged role of the user Allow Load Firmware on Multiple Devices is disabled and load firmware task is attempted on more than one device, an error popup should be thrown with the message Restricted Load firmware for a single device, Select the single device to load firmware. when the privileged role of the user
Allow Load Firmware on Multiple Devices
is disabled and load firmware task is attempted on GC with more than one device, an error popup should be thrown with the message Restricted Load firmware for a single device, maintain single device per GC to load firmware.

Network Configuration Manager Capabilities
Configuration management is the process of identifying and monitoring configurations of single devices and device families that comprise a network. Devices include routers, hubs, and switches.
Using the
DX NetOps Spectrum
Network Configuration Manager ensures the following benefits:
  • Increases the network uptime by reducing the time to resolve network issues.
  • Reduces the network support costs by reducing the occurrence of network issues that require reactive troubleshooting and fixes.
  • Reduces the network operational costs by reducing the time to administer system-wide changes.
Each device on the network is configured to provide specific services. Details about how a device operates and how it has been customized are contained in its configuration.
Network Configuration Manager lets you perform the following tasks:
  • Manage configurations for supported devices that are modeled in
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    or OneClick.
  • Capture network device configurations and store them in the
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    database.
  • Compare running and startup configurations.
  • Upload Perl configuration scripts.
  • Load firmware.
  • Export configurations.
  • Load and merge the configurations to one or more devices of the same family type.
    Merging content appends information to an existing file (it does not overwrite or restore).
  • Verify that the correct configuration is running on a device.
  • Set up a schedule of automatic captures and policies to ensure reliable device configurations.
  • Detect performance problems by verifying device configurations.
  • Maintain a history of network device configurations for comparison and troubleshooting.
  • Create policies to monitor content in configurations and verify that device content is compliant.
  • Update NCM one device at a time (From 10.4.2.1)
