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 Can Be Setup And Configured In Less Than An Hour

I love that a lot of the automation can be done on routers or switches. I have it backing up our devices on a nightly basis

Pros

Solarwinds is a very easy product to install, configure and operate. I love a lot of the automation that can be done on routers or switches

Cons

Sometimes finding the right menu option you need. Once I find the screen I am looking for, I bookmark it and name it to something that makes sense to me

Easy-to-use reliable software

With the NCM product, we collect configuration backups from central devices and branch devices. However, we also provide compliance policy controls. The NCM product is extremely easy to use with a user-friendly interface. Seems incapable of working smoothly.

Pros

The compliance policy feature was decisive in choosing this product. It is easy to implement and functional.

Cons

Sometimes you encounter simple problems despite all the improvements. An example of this is the occasional opening of the login page.

Easily monitor and backup Configs for network devices

Easily look at configs and copy and paste to new device in case of failure. Good solution for backups and monitoring.

Pros

Able to View configs on devices without having to login to device through. Able to archive configs to backup location. Also able to send email with config changes to email address.

Cons

I wish they would have their network insight feature more than just for cisco ASA's . Not able to limit the viewing of backup configs to a specific time without limiting the backup retention to that timeframe.

Solarwinds Network Configuration manager

Quite Exceptional

Pros

Ease of use and feature-rich application for an enterprise management system for Cisco, Dell, and other network vendor configurations.

Cons

There is quite a lot of automation available in this product. A simplistic video demonstration would be helpful

Solarwinds NCM Review

I am a network engineer for six years. I use ncm, npm, ipam, udt and netflow tools.

Pros

It ia easy to configure all your device in a few minutes. And you can see in a mail what you change in red and green lines.

Cons

Compliance check should be developed more easy.

Easy to setup, does require a little time looking at documentation to get it properly customized.

Pros

You are able to collect network device configurations using either telnet/ssh and you can obtain real-time config changes via SNMP traps. When a config change has been detected you can be alerted via email where you will be seen via change management the before and after configs with the changes highlighted. It also allows you to upload new configs to any devices that you are managing that you have set up access to. If you do experience any problems you will more than likely be able to fix them by applying a patch or upgrading to a newer version.
