I'm a full-time networking consultant and one of the founders of Chesapeake NetCraftsmen, LLC based near Annpolis, MD. Previously, I was an instructor/consultant at Chesapeake Computer Consultants, Inc. I'm a Certified Cisco Systems Instructor (CCSI) and CCIE #1289.
My company and my primary customer were very early adopters (beta) of NetMRI starting in 2004. We worked very closely with the developers in road testing the product on an enterprise network of ~2350 devices, and in refining and expanding the issue analysis, scripting and other capabilities.
We make good use of the CPD-based policies to trigger remediation scripted jobs. We also rely on CCS-based scripts to perform IOS upgrades on hundreds of switches and routers.
We do utilize NIOS appliances for DHCP service and are evaluating migrating DNS to them as well.
