Option to Save C:D Configurations Locally within Control Center
We would like the ability to save Connect:Direct configurations (initparm, userfile, netmap, secure+...)within Control Center. In the event of a true disaster this would allow Control Center to push the configs out to the node to quickly get a C:D instance back to a bau state. This would also be beneficial when setting up a new C:D instance and you want to clone the netmap or userfile to the new node.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
We would use this feature in the event of a true disaster where the C:D instance and tape backups were lost. We would also use this feature when rolling out new C:D instances that are similar to existing nodes and will use the same netmap, secure+, and userfile entries.
