NCM is a must have for any environment

Pros

If you run more than 5 devices you need this tool. With the ability to automate backups of iOS of the Cisco and other supported devices like HP and others you save time and money, it keeps a history and allows you to quickly restore a previous image. It also documents any and all changes to the device.

Cons

Really there are not many. Price is about the only complaint, its expensive. I have found that often Solarwinds is very proud of their software and think it needs to bring top dollar.

Solarwinds NCM

Pros

This software allows us to keep an audit trail for all the changes that takes place and it also captures that who made the change, and when a change is made in the configuration of any device then before and after comparisons are also available. We are also using this tool to keep backups for our core devices and when we are installing a new device or replacing a faulty, it helps us to apply the previously saved configuration on to the new device within few minutes.

Cons

This is a very expensive tool for small businesses and it requires administrative privileges to perform certain tasks, which might lead to a breach if exposed.

Best Configuration Mapper

If you want to spare the valuable time of your network engineers and let them work on critical stuff, and if your budget allows, Solarwind's Network Configuration Manager is totally capable of doing that.

Pros

I have used this software as our job was to provide routers/switches and we also provide configuration services to our clients and support. This software played a very big role in transferring configurations from one device to another and spare us the time to sit and configure each device and everything line by line.

Cons

for some people the cost can be a down side for not purchasing this product.

Network Configuration Manager is an amazing tool

Pros

I have used several tools to manage various networks and perform deployments but Network Configuration Manager is an amazing tool to manage almost every require activity however its best feature is to upgradations of firmwares in one go and does not require to be choose one connected device and distribute the file which can be time consuming but in this tool we can manage and upgrades firmware very easily, I can say its a time saving and less effort tool

Cons

It is very easy to integrate with any network and it has an ability to sync its parameters although the log files view is not very much eye catching and its should be more precise and every field should be clear and highlighted as per my point of view perhaps its a very nice tool
