Understand How You Can Get a Network Model into Planner

You can use any of the following methods to get a network model in Planner from the Network Browser:

  • From the Task Scheduler (Administration > Task Scheduler) page in Paragon Automation (Pathfinder):
    • Add and run a new Device Collection task that collects the configuration data from the devices in your network. Select the Store Collection to Planner field while creating this task. Once the task completes, the collection is listed in the Pathfinder Collection page. Select a collection and use the Import wizard to create a new network model from that collection, after which it is listed it in the Saved Network Models page. You can then start a planning session for the selected network model from the Saved Network Models page.
    • Add and run a new Network Archive task that archives the data collected from your network. Select Archive Network Data After Processing while creating this task. Once the task completes, the archive is listed in the Network Archive page. Since the network archive is a snapshot of the live network from Paragon Pathfinder, you can directly start a planning session for the selected archive from the Network Archives page.
  • From the Import wizard on the Saved Network Models page, you can import a new network using the routers/switches configuration, OSPF/ISIS/TED databases, or using by specification (spec) files.
