Tidying up VC configuration - it's a mess!

Since the whole debacle with Flash, I'm now configuring and updating the VC platform via SSH CLI.

I've kind of got the hang of it, but one thing that is driving me mad is there is no parsing and tidying up of the configuration.

When you show the configuration, it lists stuff as it has been entered, nothing is sorted in a logical manner. This makes everyday management and troubleshooting an absolute nightmare.

It's like if you were going through a network switch configuration and the ports were listed in the order of last edit. It's absolute madness.

To give an example, you might have:

add server-port-map-range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-1 vlanids=10-20

add server-port-map range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-2 vlanids=30-40

add server-port-map range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-1 vlanids=21-25

add server-port-map range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-1 vlanids=5-9

When this should really be simplified to:

 

add server-port-map-range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-1 vlanids=5-25
add server-port-map range 1-server1:1 UplinkSet=Uplink-2 vlanids=30-40

 

Is there any way to easily tidy this up? Right now, I can only think of manually generating a "tidy" configuration offline and then uploading it to the switch, but that's kind of impossible as some modifications might require servers to be shut down for the profiles to be updated.

How do you manage this? Any tips or tools that can facilitate?

Looks like you are updating the server profile configuration.

There is no tool or other ways to do this except the manually from GUI or CLI
