I have to add production routers NSO production environment. Services are running fine in development environment on LAB routers properly So, before adding any production device in Prod NSO, I have below queries;
1. While adding Cisco routers via CLI (telnet) what kind of commands NSO executes on devices (having status Found=Yes, Connected=Yes, in Sync=Yes and Southbound=unlocked) Do we have any reference link containing such commands?
Purpose is to know; is there any impact already running configurations?
2. What privileges level user is required in NSO to connect a device and configure services (southbound unlocked mode)?
