I can identify 2 different scenarios for which I wonder what the best practice approach would look like:
- I'm at the start of deploying a new DataMiner System and would like to automate the provisioning of monitored data sources (elements) in the DMS.
- I'm running an operational DataMiner System and have a dynamic landscape where the list of to be monitored data sources (elements) changes on a near-daily basis.
I believe our DataMiner Infrastructure Discovery and Provisioning (IDP) solution is what you are looking for. It manages and automates all workflows related to network implementation in an automated, consistent, and highly-customizable manner.
For a detailed description of the IDP solution, please take a look at the available documentation here.
