    Setting Up the Revision Manager and Creating New Revisions

    1. Identify the set of configuration files to be placed in the Revision Manager repository. Navigate to the folder of the spec network project file associated with those configuration files. Click on the specification file to open the network project.

      Note: If you have not yet created a IP/MPLSView network project (spec) for your configuration files, you should first do a configuration file import (File > Import Data). The project files will automatically be created and the network project will be automatically opened.

    2. Open the Revision Manager via Tools > Revision Manager. In the upper right corner of the window, click on “Actions” and select “Configuration Revision” from the drop-down menu.
    3. If you are accessing the configuration revision manager for the first time for the current network, you will see a window as shown in Figure 1. Click on the Try again button to create a new revision repository for your configuration files.

    4. An information window will pop up telling you to select the configuration directory next. Click OK.
    5. A “Directory Chooser” window will open up that allows you to select the directory in which the configuration files are saved. Keep in mind that once this directory has been chosen, it will be used as the main directory from which configuration revisions will be checked in. Navigate through the server directories to select the one containing your configuration files. Click Select.
    6. In the next window, the configuration revision manager will list the configuration files that are in the directory in the left pane while the right pane will display the selected configuration file. Optionally you may right-click in the left pane and select Sort by Hostname to display and sort the file list by the hostname.
