Discovery / Re: CDP Discovery Being Strange - Ignoring CDP in favor of LLDP

Yes, they are all connected via a VPLS.  However, this is also occurring on directly-connected switches.

Discovery / CDP Discovery Being Strange - Ignoring CDP in favor of LLDP
« on: February 15, 2019, 06:07:19 PM »
Hey Guys,

We are running Nedi 1.7 on Centos 6 and have recently been seeing some oddity with our "links" field.  (See image)
They all appear red or gray and when doing a discovery we notice its now saying "Ignoring CDP in favor of LLDP-MED"
We do not run LLDP on any of our Cisco hardware and in all of the Def files, CDP is the only discovery protocol selected.

We did a couple installations of Perl libraries in order to try to get SNMPV3 fully functional around the time this started happening, but I want to say this was working even after the installation of those modules and started happening more recently than that.

Any suggestions to try?

If we can get it working exactly how we envision it - no question that we'll be proposing the Subscription to management.

Thanks!

Discovery / Manually Adding / Importing Devices?
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:37:27 AM »
So we use Nedi in a very large environment with great success.  So much so, that we use queries and data dips into the database for other systems (not regular, just grab the data and get out).
One thing that we haven't figured out for sure, is whether we would "break" anything by manually updating into the database for "dark" devices that we know exist, but are not regularly accessible.
These are devices that we need in our reports, but are not accessible via SNMP, Ping, or any discovery protocol, and we're currently having to manually add and prune these devices from our reports by hand.

TL;DR: Can you just update into the MySQL device table manually without breaking anything else in the application?  Or are there "hooks" into other things when a discovery is done?
