Configuring Extranet Devices Overview

NSM also enables you to configure an existing extranet device (a third-party router). You can do this by creating a script to perform the required actions on the extranet device. These scripts are saved by default on the GUI Server at:


Add the extranet device in the Device Manager, and then configure the required metadata in a shared object in the Object Manager under Extranet Policies. This data might include: credential information (user/password), IP address, interface list, comments, action script and other additional data. When you update the device, the specified script is invoked. The device update job displays the XML output.
