Device State from Multiple Devices

L1 Bithead

I have a question and I am hoping I am not the first person to have asked it, and that there is a script out there somewhere.


I am trying to get the device state from multiple firewalls and need to somehow put it in a script.   I do leverage the scheduled config export from Panorama, but that only gets me so far in a complete disaster.  If the endpoint is completely off the map, the restoral process is much easier with a device state export.  


So, in an environment, where you have 20+ firewalls, automation is key.  So, I have played with PowerAlto (PowerShell), and other scripting methods and have not really seen an easy way to connect to a firewall, pull a device state and then move on to the next one.


Any advice on scripting or other methods to go out and get 20+ device state exports on an automated schedule would be extremely helpful.  Thank you.

You should check out SLI


Specifically the mass_ssh or mass_ssh_from_panorama commands. This would allow you to use a yaml template to place CLI commands in order to save & export the device state. Cron job to make it run as needed. EZ!
