Adding, Creating, and Importing Router Profiles

 

1. Select Admin > Task Manager from the drop-down menu.

Note

If the Task Manager does not appear, login to the IP/MPLSView server and run /u/wandl/bin/status_mplsview. The Task Server and Web Server (JBoss) should be started in order for the Task Manager to appear. In some cases it may take a few minutes for the web server to finish deploying. Once it is done, close and reopen the IP/MPLSView client and try again.

2. Click on the Router Profiles button. The Router Profiles window is displayed as shown in Figure 11. Router login details can be specified in this window.

3. You can add routers to the default profile (Default), create a new profile by some other name, or import router profile data into IP/MPLSView. These are discussed later in this chapter.

4. Once you have finished creating or editing a profile, you must click the Save button to save your changes. Note that the router profile will be stored in /u/wandl/data/.TaskManager/profile.

5. Test the router profile as described in Test Profile Connectivity. You should also check for appropriate privileges for the commands in the /u/wandl/db/command directory as described in Editing Show Commands for Data Collection.

6. The main Router Profile operations can be accessed in one of several ways via the graphical interface:

  • Buttons on the bottom of the window: New Profile, Import, Save.

  • Actions menu, accessed by clicking on the Actions button, as depicted in the figure above.

  • Right-click menu, accessed by right-clicking on the left panel of the Router Profiles window.
