Cisco Defense Orchestrator

Synchronizing Configurations Between Defense Orchestrator and Device

About Configuration Conflicts

On the Devices & Services page, you may see devices or services have the status "Synced,"  "Not Synced," or "Conflict Detected." 

  • When a device is Synced, the configuration on Defense Orchestrator and the configuration stored locally on the device are the same.  
  • When a device is Not Synced, the configuration stored in Defense Orchestrator was changed and it is now different that the configuration stored locally on the device.
  • When a device has the status Conflict Detected, the configuration on the device was changed outside of Defense Orchestrator, and is now different than the configuration stored on Defense Orchestrator. Changes made to devices outside of Defense Orchestrator are called out-of-band changes.

When your device is Synced, your device is up to date. When your device is Not Synced you need to "deploy" the changes you made on Defense Orchestrator to the device to update its configuration. If the device is marked Conflict Detected, you need to decide if you want to keep the configuration stored on Defense Orchestrator, or the configuration stored on the device, to return the device configuration status to Synced.
