Discovery switch

Hi,

 

Using "Host Connections by SNMP" to discover switches doesn't worked for me ....

I just want to discover switches (over IP range), to launch layer2 jobs, but i can't because switches are not recognized ...

 

Do you have best practices or any idea to do that ??? with another protocol than SNMP ?

 

thanks in adavance

Re: Discovery switch

Here we should come to a few questions:

- Did you configure SNMP on switches?
- if yes , what is the SNMP version you use ?
- Have you added SNMP. credentials?
- Did you make sure that there SNMP ports are through the firewall?
- Have u added switches ip ranges into UCMDB?

please post the message you got as well

Thank you

Re: Discovery switch

Hi !

 

Thank you for your reply !

 

Here are my answers :

- Did you configure SNMP on switches? => YES
- if yes , what is the SNMP version you use ? => v1/v2c
- Have you added SNMP. credentials? => YES, but there is perhaps a limitation of the source which can ask SNMP "requests" ... i'm actually checking this point with our network team ...
- Did you make sure that there SNMP ports are through the firewall? => YES
- Have u added switches ip ranges into UCMDB? => YES

Re: Discovery switch

Please let us know the model of the switch you are failing to discover and attach communication log from one of the problematic destinations.
