Cisco Configuration Engine -- Troubleshooting
The Cisco Configuration Engine is a network management software that acts as a configuration service for automating the deployment, management, and upgrading of network devices and services. Each Configuration Engine manages a group of Cisco devices (switches and routers) and the services that they deliver, storing their configurations and delivering them as needed. The Cisco Configuration Engine automates initial configurations and configuration updates by generating device-specific configuration changes, sending them to the device, executing the configuration change, and logging the results.
