IBM "Blade" interfaces - "Unknown"


Having issues getting IBM "Blade" interfaces to the correct state.
They are currently "unknown". Done the "netmon switch" bit:
It's cured all the Switch interfaces regardless of vendor, but can get the "blades" managed, even through I can demandpoll. The blade stack also two cisco blades and they are OK, just the IBM's. Any help most appreciated.

Re: IBM "Blade" interfaces - "Unknown"

Hi Dick,
tell me this particular node is managed in your NNM Console or not?
If yes,so try to ping your interface IP from your NNM Console.
And last u have to poll the node through SNMP.if no try to put that community name in your NNM Console.

If you face any proble,feel free to ask me.

Points are welcome.

Found out that the revision of blade Fiberchannel firmware doesn't "like" snmp requests and isn't "full" MIB2 compliant.

Other than that, they're fine...

Points given - closing the call
