I would like to push IOS code to Cisco devices via snmp to bulk devices. I have linux box as ftp server with ftp, scp protocol enabled. it would help me a lot, please tell me the procedure. Thanks for your help in advance

  • If you have a small network it wouldn't take too long to ssh into your devices, copy from sftp and reload. I've ye to try rancid, but is very popular among network engineers.

You can run command on Cisco IOS using SNMP but its little complicated and not standard practice but anyway just following this document http://www.ciscozine.com/send-cisco-commands-via-snmp/

I would prefered using shell script to rancid tool to execute command on cisco devices.
