Ideas for syncing sCRT with colleagues

Hey everyone,
Finally managed to convince to powers that be to get secureCRT for all the network engineers.. hooray.. no more buying secureCRT myself :P

Since we now will have the same software sharing of the sessions etc might be useful. Anyone feel like discussing their solutions for this? I was thinking of abusing a simple syncing tool for this but perhaps someone has a better solution?

Hi koenv,

We apologize for not responding sooner.

SecureCRT does not offer a method to synchronize sessions between multiple installations. I have created a feature request in our SecureCRT enhancement database to add the ability to do this. Should a future release of SecureCRT have a sync option, we will post to this forum thread.

If you would like to be notified directly, please complete and submit the form at the following location:
Submit Feature Request
In the meantime, can you tell me more about how you plan to use the SecureCRT session database?

How many sessions do you plan to have defined?

Do you plan to allow any SecureCRT user to add new sessions to the common configuration?

Usage: simply share the session list among colleages. So in a team of 5 engineers when 1 would add/update a session this would be replicated to the other 4 engineers.
All 4 should be able to add/change/delete stuff that gets synced. In an ideal world this would work with users and user-rights but I'd be happy with a basic sync where everybody sets read/write right on their own installation or even a most basic sync where everyone may do everything.

Number of sessions: currently a few 100.

Hi koenv,

Thanks for the update. Have you considered placing the configuration folder on the network for all users to access?

In the past, using a configuration folder from the network has not had the best performance and this only got worse as the configuration folder got larger. SecureCRT 7.0 has improved performance in this regard, so you may want to test SecureCRT 7.0b1 with your configuration folder on a network share to see if this would meet your needs.

Re: Syncing Session Creation between Users

I would pipe with supporting some type of feature to allow a team of 5 ro 10 Network Engineers to keep a config folder or parts of it the same.
Why
We too have a small team of Sr and Jr Network Engineers, and as we migrate and add devices, the seniors, it would be nice if there seemed to be an import for the juniors, keeping them congruent. We do not want the performance lag or just how we run around from site to site gums up the network share idea.

I think this would be a worth it "feature request" if there isn't an adhoc way to get to the end.
thanks

The only option I'm aware of is to move your sessions folder to a network share and have everyone point to it (Tool / Global Options / Config Folder). The downside is that things may be a little slower since every "phone book" access now requires a network call.

Also, since your phone book is now on the network, you may need to utilizes Windows' 'offline folder' feature in order to keep your phone book accessible when not on the network.
