    Dear Team,


    Is it possible to take auto backup of device configuration in case if there is any change in the configuration? Instead of taking backup on regular intervals

    Hello Ajit,


    Yes. This can be done. Have a look at this in the NCM guide


    Unsolicited device configuration captures:


    Network Configuration Manager attempts to capture device configurations immediately after any change occurs. An unsolicited notification of configuration change can be either traps or MIB objects that are sent from the device where the change occurred.

    Some devices send SNMP traps when their configuration has changed. The SpectroSERVER then performs a capture and saves the configuration in the database to provide updated configuration data. Network Configuration Manager policies are tested against the most recent configuration captures.

    Okay Kalyan thanks,


    So can we use this method instead of Global Synchronization task, where it collects all devices running configuration.
