update configration with RME

I have this scenario and i am looking for which LMS apps help me to do the job.

interface FastEthernet0/15

description *** test1 ***

switchport trunk allowed vlan 200,201,202

switchport mode trunk

and I want to change the switchport configration to

"switchport trunk allowed vlan 300,301,302,303,304,305"  and I want remove the old one.

Note - I have dozens of switch with this same configuration but the port is not the same. some switch on port 4 other 5 other 6 so on. I am thinking the compliance job, but not sure. net config can be work but since the port is not consistent I don't think it's work( I could be wrong) any suggestion highly appreciated. Thanks, Paul

Hi,

I just tested this template on my lab and it appears to work as per your requirements:

Name: Checktrunks
IsPrereq: Yes
Sub-mode: interface [#FastEthernet.*#]
Body:

+ switchport mode trunk
+ description [#test-.*#]
Name: SetAllowedVlans
IsPrereq: No
Parent:
Checktrunks
Prereq: Checktrunks
Body:

-
switchport trunk allowed vlan 200,201,202
+ switchport trunk allowed vlan 300,301,302,303,304,305

Let me know if this works.

Andres.

Hi,

I am glad to hear the template is working.

Baseline templates on Cisco Works use Regular expressions.

Here are some good links with documentation:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/netmgtsw/ps6504/ps6528/ps2073/prod_white_paper0900aecd8068cc98.pdf

http://www.regular-expressions.info/reference.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression

Also here are some examples to match the other descriptions:

(*** test-1) ---> description [#.*test-1#]

(*** test-1***) ---> description [#.*test-1.*#]

The . means any character and the * means the previous character 0 or more times. So basically .* will match anything.

Hi,

There migth be a better option, however, this is the best I could think of and it worked on my lab.

This regular expression will match the following: description anything test-x anything

Name: DefaultPreReq     SubMode: Yes      isPrerequisite: Yes
Ordered : No     Prerequisite-Commandset : none     Parent: none
  interface   [#FastEthernet.*#]
  +   switchport   mode   trunk
  +   description  [#.*#]  [#.*test-.*#]  [#.*#]

Name: Commands     SubMode: Yes      isPrerequisite: No
Ordered : No     Prerequisite-Commandset : DefaultPreReq     Parent: none
  interface   [#FastEthernet.*#]  (Using   the   submode   of   conditional   commands   above)
  -   switchport   trunk   allowed   vlan   300,301,302,303,304,305,102
  +   switchport   trunk   allowed   vlan   300,102

Let me know if this helps.

Andres.

Hi,

The best tool to do that type of change is the 'Compliance Mgmt'.

You need to create a template that will look like this:

_ This will set as prerequisite that the FastEthernet port is a trunk.

Name: Checktrunks
IsPrereq: Yes
Sub-mode: interface [#FastEthernet.*#]
Body:

+ switchport mode trunk

_ If the port pass the previous prerequisite then the following command will be checked.

Name: SetAllowedVlans
IsPrereq: No
Parent:
Checktrunks
Prereq: Checktrunks
Body:

+ switchport trunk allowed vlan 300,301,302,303,304,305

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks Andre,I think i was not clear on my question. the solution can I identify all ports with " switchport mode trunk" this is full fill my objective on half. but as I said I have many ports with trunk enabled. I am looking for one of the port with description "test-1" because I don't want to change the other trunk port vlans. the sticky problem is how compliance managment able to identify the port with desccription "test" is this too much expectation from RME .

Thanks again!!!

Hi,

In that case you only need to add that condition to the pre requisite:

Name: Checktrunks
IsPrereq: Yes
Sub-mode: interface [#FastEthernet.*#]
Body:

+ description test-1
+ switchport mode trunk

Let me know if that helps.

Andres, hopefully you will be patient with me, here is something important I have to
tell you. the description is variable. like. test-1,test-2,test-3 up to 100. so the problem i have is can I use wild card on the cli section? or partial command

just to avoid any specfic number after test.

ex -

+  **description test*

+  switchport trunk allowed 300,301,302,303

Thanks much again.

Hi,

Let me see if I understood correctly.

You want to configure 'switchport trunk allowed 300,301,302,303' on trunk ports that have a description test-x.

Please confirm.

Andres.

yes, side note -actually replace the current "switch truck port allowed 200 201 203" to the newer one. you are right the description is test -X thanks gain for your time.

thanks you so very much working perfectley. one last question, where I can find a documnet regarding this wildcards can be use on compliance managment. is there any escape character? some of the description I have start (*** test-1) or (*** test-1***) so I want to escape for (*) charcater. I have tried + description [***test-*#] but doesn't work. if you have a link for any documentation for different complaince managment wildcard options please post. once again thank you for your time!!!

Thanks for the links and  I have configured close 1200 switches using your template. I have stuck with the last 50. what happen is there is a white space on the description . ex - *** test-x *** ( there is a white space between *** and test also between x and *** . this [#.*test.*] working perfectly for description without any white space (***test-x***) I have search on the link you sent me I couldn't find what regular expression to use for whire space. I know in perl /s use for white space but didn't work here for me. any suggestion. hope fully this is my last question.

This regular expression will match the following: description anything test-x anything

Name: DefaultPreReq     SubMode: Yes      isPrerequisite: Yes
Ordered : No     Prerequisite-Commandset : none     Parent: none
  interface   [#FastEthernet.*#]
  +   switchport   mode   trunk
  +   description  [#.*#]  [#.*test-.*#]  [#.*#]

Name: Commands     SubMode: Yes      isPrerequisite: No
Ordered : No     Prerequisite-Commandset : DefaultPreReq     Parent: none
  interface   [#FastEthernet.*#]  (Using   the   submode   of   conditional   commands   above)
  -   switchport   trunk   allowed   vlan   300,301,302,303,304,305,102
  +   switchport   trunk   allowed   vlan   300,102
