At first I thought that it was limited to Cisco wireless APs but after letting it run for a full day that are showing up on switches and routers as well. With NeDio8 the only time that I would get config errors were when the cron backup job ran at midnight. It would then only show any changes since the previous backup or on the devices that I do not have CLI access( I still have not found a way to have it ignore these). But with NeDio9 I get config errors on every hourly NeDi scan. This is a sample. Can your help me understand what this is saying (Config changed (@16261407s) 156.55 days after writing to flash (@2735031s))?? I'm using the default cron jobs that come with NeDi.

I'm not sure just how to check the whether the lastwrite is smaller that the last change. As for other tools, we do have another SMS tool that we have been using for several years, it only performs SNMP reads on these devices. No writes and this has been running parallel with NeDio8 with no problems.

I do have both j and J turned on but it does not show any IP changes in NeDio9 at all. I have it set the same in NeDio8 and it works correctly. With NeDio8, it logs an event everytime  an IP changes.

I must be overlooking the Sherlok hat because I do not see it at. Where would it be located?

I still continue to get the Config changed messages every time the cron job runs. I've saved the config on every device and even perform a manual backup but this did not seem to make any difference. For the most part the messages stay the same but do vary a little. I turned off the email notifications so i don't receive them any more but the messages still appear in the events. The only way that I've found to stop them all together is remove the "b" option.

I've also noticed that on the NeDio 9, that it no longer post events when their is a change in the IP addresses of nodes. This is one of the features that I really liked. It helped us see unidentified nodes when they connect to the network.


Discovery / Keep getting Config changed messages after installing NeDio9
« on: January 24, 2014, 05:49:58 PM »
I've installed NeDio9 and I must say that I like the new look of things. Since the installation though I noticed that every time the hourly cron job runs, I get the following config message on most of all the devices, especially wireless APs. The message reads some like "Config changed (@15631457s) 149.26 days after writing to flash". The number of days varies with device. The cron job is the default: 0 1-23 * * *   /var/nedi/nedi.pl -vp > /tmp/nedi-`date +\%H`.run 2>&1.
Is there a way to turnoff the messages?

Thanks for your help...

The problem was with the SSL certificate. During the install I skipped over the SSL certificate and just used the defaults but I guess that it needed at least one entry. I reinstalled and setup the certificate and now it works correctly.

Thanks for your help... :) :)

SSH does work. I'm able to connect to the NeDio installation, but http and https both fail with connection error.

I just downloaded the NeDio9, installed with no problem but I'm unable to connect to NeDio using http or https. I'm able to ping the IP address but NO web  connection. Is there a service that needs to be started? Did I miss something on the installation?


Discovery / switch icon color changed
« on: August 27, 2013, 10:32:50 PM »
I've been running NeDio 8  for several months now and I'm still learning how it all works. We use mostly (95%) Cisco switches and they have always been a blue color. I've had to modify defs on several but overall no problem. Then I started noticing that some were turning a lime green color. I didn't think much about it but now it seems that over half of my switches have turned this lime green. It also seems that the normal hourly scans have stopped and some devices have not been updated in a couple of weeks now. Any ideas on this?? What do the different colors mean and how many different variations are there?

Thanks for a great product....

I accidentally deleted the admin message section on the user profiles. How can I get this back?

GUI / Help with Rack map view
« on: July 24, 2013, 09:19:40 PM »
On the defgen video you show a rack map with your network switches. It seems that this is based on the snmp location but I can't seem to hit upon the correct combination. No matter what combination I use my maps are showing in a horizonal format. Do you have any other documentation that would help me to set this up?


Other / Re: Help with Monitoring
« on: July 18, 2013, 10:23:49 PM »
Yes I have read the help section. Where can I check to see if it is attempting to send the alerts? I'm able to receive other notifications with no problems. When I look at the events I see numerous entries for this: Source=Nedi, "No successful check at all, is moni running? Does this have anything to do with the email alerts?

Getting back to the alert setup, so once I've selected the device or node and click on monitor, on the configuration I would select "uptime, ping, etc." then mail. What about the forward? I'm choosing Forward, Level Limit=Alert and then click update. Is this correct?

Other / Help with Monitoring
« on: July 17, 2013, 06:47:48 PM »
For the life of me I can't seem to figure out how to setup monitoring on devices and nodes. I would like to receive an email notification when a device goes down and back up. Also the same for a few nodes that are critical to operations. How do I do this?? Should I use ping or up time and how do I configure the email notification? What is the difference between email and email (repeat)? How often does this repeat sending the email? Any help would be appreciated.


Discovery / Re: Nodes are discovered with IP
« on: June 28, 2013, 08:55:51 PM »
Yes, I have tried different mibs in Defgen and all with the same results. I've contacted the vendor who maintains this router and he is able to do a 'show arp' an 'show iparp' and display the results. After digging around on the Cisco site I think the problem may be with the version of IOS. This router is running 12.4(6) and I don't see where it will support the IP-Mib (IP-MIB::ipNetToMediaPhysAdress - I'm able to do an snmpwalk on successfully. The vendor has agreeded to upgrade if I can tell what version the IOS needs to be.

Since this is a router and I only have snmp ro access, I'm not able to get to a command line on the router itself. I did run the snmpwalk to the device and it comes back with: IP-MIB::ipNetToMediaPhysAdress =  No Such Object availalbe on this agent at this OID. The router model is Cisco 3725.
I'm not familiar with the internal working of routers so is it possible that this model does not have the capability of displaying the IP addresses? Is there any other way to get them?

I've tired several different defs and every combination on the ARP/ND with no success. The does seem to be the correct def for this router. Is there any thing else that I might try? It would be nice to get the IP/DNS information for this location.
