Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DOES CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT BACKUP NETWORK DEVICES?

By using SSH credentials which you enter into the WhatsUp Gold management console, the solution can connect to your network devices at a configured time and collect either the running or start up configuration files.

WhatsUp Gold can then store these configuration files for as long as you wish -  giving you an archive and audit trail of changes.

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CONFIGURATION FILE IS CHANGED WITHOUT AUTHORISATION?

Using SNMP traps, WhatsUp Gold can detect a change in the configuration file immediately; and in turn, alert you to that change.

Collection of the newly changed configuration file using the backup function will then allow you to compare the newly changed configuration file and the previous, line by line.

Should you wish to restore the previous configuration file, you can do this with the press of a button.

 

HOW ELSE CAN CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT HELP?

At a basic level, the configuration management module connects to network devices over SSH or Telnet and issues commands, such as backup.

Expanding on this, configuration management has the capability to issue any command which the network device accepts - such as creating new VLANs, disabling interfaces or querying license servers. 

 

HOW DOES CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT HELP WITH REGULATORY COMPLIANCE?

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold configuration management comes with a number of out-of-the-box templates for network devices which implement the changes required for PCI-DSS HIPAA and SOX compliance.
