SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager is a versatile little tool that can help eliminate network downtime caused by configuration errors.
As anyone who has ever worked in IT in almost any capacity knows, almost all IT departments are a) understaffed b) underfunded, and c) under appreciated.
As anyone who has ever worked in IT in any capacity also knows, most network problems occur because of recent router and switch configuration changes, and more often than not because Steve in accounts has ‘tried to fix it myself’ again.
SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager key features include:
- Automatically back up and organisation of configuration files.
- Accurate and relevant alerts for when configuration changes are made.
- Rolling back a change using an archived configuration.
- Using templates to standardize and apply changes error free.
- Approving proposed configuration changes before they are applied.
Downloading and installation of SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager is relatively straightforward. There is a slight learning curve involved, but professionals should be up and running within a few short minutes. The interface is effective and functional, and perfect for users who just want to get things done and move back onto asking if Steve in Accounts has tried turning his PC on and off; again.
SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager isn’t free but it does come with a one month trial, which is good. We could write a lot more about SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager and bury right down into specifics, but we appreciate you probably just want to know if the software is any good, and if it will save time and headaches. So, yes it is, yes it will, and again, yes.
