Making Bulk Updates to Scheduled Config Management Backups

QUESTION:

How do I make bulk updates to the scheduled backups initiated within configuration management for a specific department?

 

RESOLUTION:

This requires access to the BVECLI/BVEAPI.

  • Make sure BVE API is running (assuming you have BVE access e.g. <TRAVERSE_HOME>/etc/bveapi.init status or from Traverse Service Controller
  • telnet/ssh to your BVE on port 7661

telnet 127.0.0.1 7661

  • Log in as admin/superuser using:

login USERNAME PASSWORD
e.g. login superuser traverse

  • represent into the department by providing a user login from that department:

user.represent "loginname=USERNAME"
e.g. user.represent "loginname=traverse"

  • apply the bulk update to all devices (only devices that have NCM enabled will be applicable even though the update is applied to all devices):

device.update "devicename=*", "configBackupFrequency=TIMEINMINUTES"

e.g. (for 12 hour frequency)
device.update "devicename=*", "configBackupFrequency=720"

e.g. (for 1 day frequency)
device.update "devicename=*", "configBackupFrequency=1440"

  • to represent into a different department:

exit

user.represent "loginname=DIFFUSERNAME"

 

APPLIES TO:

All versions of Traverse 

 

REFERENCE:

None
