Okay, we've recently upgraded to 1.7. Haven't tested this new function, will be nice to try :)

Well MIBs only describe OIDs. You still need to know what to ask...

I've decided to skip MIBs 15 years ago to avoid the overhead. I went for individual .def files to avoid constraints between types as well...

15 years later I'm still happy with this decision as it is robust and pretty reliable.

In 1.7 I've added a new function to copy any existing .def over an unknown type. This will make life much easier!

Discovery / Re: Customizing the "Discover Now" button

Good point. It might make sense to make FQDN configurable in nedi.conf...

Discovery / Customizing the "Discover Now" button
« Last post by vias79 on June 09, 2017, 12:46:47 PM »
Wanted to share my quick fix to be able to customize the Discover Now button inside a device:

Our problem is that we use dots in our hostnames, vil1.ds1 would become a new unit named vil1when issuing a discover now to check if the defgen worked fine.

Adding -F omitts this problem in the cronjob, but how to edit this button? Nowhere in the GUI does this seem possible.

Luckily we can fix this with some easy editing:

On row 55 in the file 'nedi/html/System-NeDi.php' add your options:

Example:

Change:
 }elseif($mde == "d"){
         $arg = '';

To:
 }elseif($mde == "d"){
         $arg = 'F';


Hopefully we can get this editable via GUI in a future release?

If you checkout the Observium project, he uses the MIBs instead of generic SNMP polls. Couldn't Nedi be made to use this approach aswell?

If this is impossible could a more generic approach to defgens be coded? Nedi already has support for a lot of hardware but not all models and lineups. Could defgen be modified with brand-centric defaults? Most values (broadcast/discards/ifaliases) are the same between models from the same vendor. Some differences may apply but they're not that many. Cut'n'paste often works between different models using HP Comware 5, HP Comvare 7, Huawei, Cisco IOS etc.

Installation / Re: Config backup for HPE Switches with latest firmware

Good! the '@' could be supported in the hostname, but I've never encountered it before...

Anyone let me know, if this is required in future versions.

Yes, the logic behind ESX servers can be installed quite easily, but knowing what settings you had for VMs might be more benefical. At least this was the case for me...

Remo, thank you for your explanation.. Still, the backup is only for VMs configs - right, not for ESX host config ..?

Wow! You was right! Without @ in the device name backup works fine.
About Location - I will try to change to full path for every device :)

Tx for the logs! Is it possible to remove the @ from the hostname? It may not be the OS after all...

While you're at it, change the location to something like "Country;City;Street;1;Room;Rack1;10" and behold in Topology-Table what it does :)
