Cisco has recently updated the CCNA exam and its objectives. The network management portion of the exam once dealt with access lists (IP and IPX, standard and extended), telnet, and DNS; it then changed to reflect only access lists. Now it has been expanded much beyond its earlier scope, which makes sense in our more security-conscious networking environment. We need to understand more, even at the so-called entry-level positions, about how the network devices are configured and how the links and resulting topology can be managed.

With a little rearrangement into groups, the nine objectives Cisco lists under the topic of network management reflect that new view:

Though it may not seem so at first, these nine objectives reflect what has become known as the "five smurfs" -- the network management framework described by the ISO in an annex to the famous OSI reference model for protocols. The five System Management Functional Areas (SMFA) or smurfs are:

  1. Configuration management

  2. Fault management

  3. Performance management

  4. Accounting management

  5. Security management

WAN vendors seem to rearrange these, providing a handy acronym you may see in network management reference source material: FCAPS (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, Security). With a little thought, you can see that the only smurf not directly reflected in Cisco's CCNA network management objectives is Accounting management. However, without the proper configuration and performance data gathering, accounting has no information on which to report.

Systems are built from constituent parts. Let's take these broad topics in the above order, starting first with how to manage the configuration of a single system, then considering how to manage the traffic flowing through that one component, and finish with network-wide operations.

Note: Because many CCNA candidates are not yet familiar with UNIX and UNIX-like syntax, not all will recognize the UNIX origin of the router and switch command lines. If you're familiar with a Microsoft-based command line, the differences are just great enough to cause headaches and frustration when your CLI entries are not accepted. Remember that UNIX is case-sensitive and uses a slash (/) instead of a backslash (\) to delimit a file path.

Manage a Single System

Though you may occasionally add hardware to a networking device (such as changing blades or adding new ones to a multi-blade switch like the Catalyst 6500 series), managing a device usually means managing its software. We use computing devices so much that it's easy to forget that, without useful software, they are merely expensive doorstops. This is reflected in the software focus of single-system management. The software of interest consists of both the operating system (OS) governing all processes on the host and the configuration files that specify how it will use the OS. Managing the software consists of being able to copy software images and configuration files between systems (to back them up or import them), and loading them on the device or configuring it to load them from a designated source.

Before you try to manage that system, you might want to know what's already on it. The command show version (note: all commands in this tutorial, unless otherwise specified, must be run from privileged exec mode) will display the following: the hardware configuration, the software version, the names and sources of the configuration files, and the boot images. With this information in hand, you can consider how you might want to modify things.


The phrase "loading software" on a router or switch can be taken in two ways: loading the software into working memory, and loading it into the source files from which it is loaded into working memory. Both of these can be done from one of several sources. The objectives require that you understand three: flash memory already on board the device, ROM chips also on board the device, and over the network from a TFTP server. Even though we are all more-or-less familiar with these forms of storage, since the focus of this tutorial is network management, it's worth taking a step back to review the implications of these different kinds of storage. With that fresh in our minds, we can review how to perform such software loads.

Operating software packages are usually known as images. An image is a file of a specific version of the software, compiled for a particular set of hardware. Image names may look cryptic at first, but they are actually quite descriptive. Try this example from IOS Release 12.2: c3640-c2is-mz.Feb24 -- "c3640" indicates the product (Cisco 3640), "c2is" indicates the feature sets supported, "mz" is actually a pair of indicators (where "m" means the image runs from RAM and "z" means the image is compressed), and the date is obvious.

You may have access to several images from one source file system. That is similar to having multiple operating systems that a PC can boot into. All file system sources are forms of storage for the software image that is to be loaded into working memory (typically RAM). More than the three sources in the objectives are available: NVRAM, xmodem and ymodem dialup sources, FTP servers, rcp (the UNIX remote copy command is rcp -- and don't forget, UNIX is case-sensitive) are among the possibilities. Working memory, of course, is volatile -- when power is removed, its contents are lost. The other sources are nonvolatile. They do not require power to retain their contents, and so the contents are there even when power has been interrupted. When power is restored, the source is ready and waiting.

Each source offers us different advantages and disadvantages. ROM, we all know, stands for Read-Only Memory. Instructions, once written to ROM, are fixed. This means that the software stored in ROM is likely to be the oldest of the available sources. (Given the nature of software upgrades, of course, that may also make it the most reliable.) Loading from ROM, then, often means rolling back to a previous version (or release) of software; this may result in the loss of some features or functionality that the network needs. ROM is always present on the device, however, and so does not require a network connection or additions after the device leaves the factory. Loading from ROM, then, is the software source the first time the device is powered up. It is also often used as a source of last resort for a working network device.

Flash memory is also present on the device, but, unlike ROM, it is rewritable without being volatile. PCMCIA cards are a form of flash memory. Flash and ROM both have no moving parts and therefore they load very quickly. In addition, they are local to the device. The advantage of flash over ROM is that, being rewritable, it can be updated with a new version or revision of software. This combination -- the latest software plus local and fast retrieval -- makes flash memory the first choice (typically) for loading a software image.

A TFTP server is our third option (in the objectives). While a router may be configured in the IOS to act as a TFTP server, in this case, the reference more likely is to loading software from a TFTP server elsewhere on the network (whether it is what Cisco calls a "classic TFTP server" or a TFTP server on another router).


The Trivial File Transfer Protocol, or TFTP, suffers somewhat from the connotations of the word Trivial. The protocol is not necessarily used only for file transfers that really aren't that important. The name "Trivial" was used because of the protocol's simplicity and ease of implementation, especially compared with the File Transfer Protocol, or FTP. The current source document for TFTP is RFC1350.

While FTP uses TCP on top of IP (and therefore requires a connection-oriented session between the devices involved in the file exchange), TFTP uses UDP. UDP is much less sophisticated and, as a result, operates much faster and with lower overhead. This is important when transferring very large files, such as a software image. We all remember that UDP has no guarantees of receipt, unlike TCP, with its requirement for ACKs (acknowledgments). TFTP compensates for this disadvantage with its file transfer method.

Where FTP uses TCP's adjustable window to send multiple packets for each ACK, TFTP sends each fixed-length 512-Byte chunk of information one at a time, and does not send the next until that one is acknowledged. If a next packet is not received, after a timeout, the receiver repeats its last acknowledgement and the sender retransmits. The sender only has to retain one packet for retransmission instead of several, as it would using FTP and TCP; this is simpler to buffer. A packet containing less than 512 Bytes denotes the end of the file to be transferred (again, not as sophisticated as TCP's FIN, but compensating for UDP's total lack of closure).

In short, despite its name, TFTP is a reliable as well as fast and low overhead means to deliver a large and complex file that must be complete -- no lost packets.

An advantage of the TFTP server is that it can store many possible images as well as serve as a central repository for images for several different types of devices. You could, for example, have a TFTP server with images for several different routers, switches, hardware firewalls (such as Cisco's PIX), and so forth. Even better, of course, would be a redundant TFTP server, but network reliability is not our concern in this tutorial. In the disadvantage column, TFTP as an image source will always be slower than either ROM or flash, since the source is over the network and that does take more time to transfer the data, even if no packets are lost and must be retransmitted. Another disadvantage of TFTP is that it generally requires a working network connection -- if connectivity is lost, a reload, which can only come from that server, will fail.

So, there are the three means to load software into a router or switch, and some of the implications of their characteristics. The next question is, how, exactly, do we get the software loaded? We configure the router or switch to seek out its source of system software when it boots or reloads. To display the current software configuration, as well as to modify it, we must be in privileged exec mode.
