Stop if error occurred

Select this if you want Distribution Manager to stop distributing configuration changes to the devices when an error occurs.

Changes made prior to the error are not backed out. If another device is being configured when an error occurs, that device's configuration is completed before QPM stops policy distribution.

Configure one device at a time

Select this if you want Distribution Manager to change the configuration of one device at a time. If you deselect this, Distribution Manager configures several devices simultaneously.

Show Unchanged Devices

Select this to display all devices defined in the database, even those devices whose QoS configurations have not changed since the last time the database was saved.

Restore To Current

Select this to enable the Restore to Current feature.

Deployment

Deployment output options:

  • Telnet—Deploys to devices.

  • Log File—Deploys to output files (for IOS devices).

  • Telnet and Log File—Deploys to devices, and to output files (for IOS devices).

The output files are located in the Versions folder in the QoS Policy Manager file structure. The files for each job are located in a separate folder identified by the job number. The output file for each IOS device is identified by the device name.
