SMTP

A bit of an odd one here (and has been reported to Ruckus as something that either needs clarifying or fixing) in that if you want to remove the requirement for CAPTCHA when self registering in a ‘out of band’ workflow block you need to configure your own SMTP server. Now that’s all fair however even with the server configured the disable option still doesn’t appear.

In this case it looks like you also need to disable (or configure yourself) the built in SMS server at Administration > System Service > Outbound SMS. With that set the disable option then appears in the drop down.

Following from Automated backup for your network switches with WinSCP and PowerShell you can take things one step further and with a little more PowerShell its possible to get email reports on any changes between switch configs.

This kind of setup would be useful for any sized organisation who have a need to ensure changes are logged or want to ensure that no one has maliciously changed a configuration.

The setup is simple, just as with the automated backup these will need to be extracted to your C:\Network Switch Backup folder which should look something like the screenshot to the right once done.

I’ve also included an updated .cmd file which calls the Backup Network Switches.ps1 script and then the Compare Configs.ps1 script in turn.

There is plenty of description within the PowerShell file; even a little error handling as well! Be sure to edit lines 6-8 with your SMTP settings.
