The mere mention of Bay Networks and Site Manager (read: Site Mangler or Site Damager) is enough to get my blood pressure up a few points, and I haven't touched that stuff since probably 1999 or 2000. The CLI was quite horrible, and their somewhat IOS-like command shell (BCC) was not much better.

Have you had a good experience with using SNMP-Write?  I have not.

The most I've done using SNMP SETs is backed up configurations from network devices at my old job. That part worked (and works) very well, but I never tried pushing config changes out to devices that way.
