That's a fine name, although it is a bit redundant (Metropolitan Area
Network already refers to a city).

Native IOS, or Hybrid CatOS/IOS?  It makes a big difference.

Very similar to my network - I've got about about 20 6500 at corporate
sites, and about 130 3500/3750 at electrical substations.

In the simple case, just run cfgmaker and go.

If you want to run snmp against all 250 routers, then you will want to
plan a bit more and use the Directory[] function.

I have templates set up that I use on my 6500's, specific to the
particular family of code (If you are running IOS Modularity there are a
few other twists).

Let us know what you are attempting to provide, and we'll attempt to
help you.
