Discovery / Re: Duplicate ip entrys for macs

Ok, changed the retire value in nedi.conf to 1 ist better. Thanks. Only max 2 IPs per MAC cause of IP changed.
But would be a retire of 2 Hours be possible (scan every 2 Hours) for this ?

Tried it with "my $nret = $main::now - 7200;" inserted Line 303 and changed retire to nret in line 323/324 (322/323 before insert nret line). Tried it before i set the retire to 1 in nedi.conf. There was no benefit. Many different old IP's on one mac :/

I'm afraid the only thing you can do in 1.5 is to decrease retire in nedi.conf.

Alternatively you can replace retire with revive in nedi.pl lines 317 and 318.
This will use half the retire time instead...

A bit more complicated, but add this before line 317:
my $nret = $main::now - 86400;
and replace $retire with $nret to set it to 1 day.

ps. Ja, but it's an international forum ;)

yes this one is a printer. The same problem exists with all clients(windows7) using dhcp.
We don't know, why the clients change the ip, cause the lease is at 8 days. But this is not a problem for us. Dhcp provided by Infoblox.

Now to the discovery:
It seems the newer version don't delete old entries. On the Scan yesterday at 10:13 there where only 2 IP's in the ARP-cache of the router (the actual one and a older one [timer 70min]). The 1.4/1.5 save all adresses as actual with the date of the scan. On 1.0.7 we have only the actual IP :|


P.S. Prinzipiell können wir uns auf Deutsch besser erklären :)

This is a bit of a problem, as it's difficult to distinguish an IP change from a host using several IPs (e.g. when the router has new and old entry in the ARP cache). I've added new retire values in the latest NeDi versions. 1 for links (as obsolete ones shouldn't stay 30 days either) and 1 for ARP values.

From your IPchanges I see, that they change quite frequently indeed and this is a printer, right?

Thank you sir!
GUI / Re: Method for obtaining a single list of all switch serial #s on multiple stacks
« Last post by ntmark on October 25, 2016, 09:36:06 PM »
You can try finding them under Devices -> Modules, filter by Class = 3.
You may need to add other Class values depending on your platform.
Also by filtering additionally by Device Name you can get all chassis SN for a single host (stack).

Definition Files / Wanted - DEF file for Avaya ERS & VSP
« Last post by Sam Conder on October 25, 2016, 08:10:52 PM »
I have the following devices and would like to have complete DEF files for the following devices.  I have worked with DEFGEN and have some features working, but would always like to double-check my work against others.

  • ERS 5520-48T-PWR
  • ERS 5520-24T-PWR
  • ERS 5698TFD-PWR
  • VSP 4450GSX-PWR+
  • VSP 4850GTS
  • VSP 8424XS
  • VSP 7254XTQ

Thanks in advance for any help,

I have roughly a dozen 3750-x/3850-x switch stacks with 3-4 switches in each stack.

Any idea how can I obtain a list of serial numbers for all *individual* switches?

Best regards,

we have two servers with different versions of NeDi in use. . The old one with NeDi 1.0.7 and a newer first wit 1.4p6 and now with 1.5.

In the old one we got reporting Mails with duplicate IP-Adresses for several MAC's. Ok.. on the Gateways where both actually in the arp table, cause of ip changes from dhcp.

The old one use seemingly the newest one. All IP-Changes where listet on the IP-Change-Table from the mac.

Now the problem.. the new one writes all adresses in the db. so if we want to tshoot a client with the mac, we see several ip's.

If we show the mac details there are noch IP-Changes listed, but all diferent IP's listet under IP.

Thanks for any suggestions!  :(
