    Hi all,

    the fundamentials of the NCM are OK but there are still missing some important features.

     

    critical functions:

    - allow for variable usage/substitution within script parameters based on Spectrum model attributes

      example: capture_running_script <ip> <user> <pass> <enablepass> <timeout> ${attribute0x1234} ${attribute0x3456}

    - allow for variable usage/substitution within NCM policies to check for config content based on Spectrum model attributes

    - ncm support via secure domains

    this is the reason why it is not possible to use NCM in MSP and enterprise enviroment. We still have to use other tools from competitors :-(

     

    other improvements:

    - custom device families shall have precedence over default existing device families in any case

    - NCM policies shall ignore the device family and rely on the global collection solely; impact: reduce the amount of policies needed

     

    best regards Uwe
