Discovery / Re: Please help a challenged Nedi user
« Last post by rickli on May 29, 2017, 11:32:30 PM »
I assume you ran the discovery and got nodes? Try this nedi.pl -N10.10.10.1-254 -P1 -sid (lowercase s to scan). The -s option can contain a portlist as well -sid,3306,8080.The "id" part means literally id-ing a node based on some common ports like 22,23,25,80,137 and 443
Discovery / Re: Network devices that have as SysObjectID
« Last post by rickli on May 29, 2017, 11:21:56 PM »
Tx for the feedback :)

NeDi uses sysobjid only to determine the device type. This works for most networking vendors and that's what I've developed it for.

If your Linux devices provide their type in a MIB you could use the OID as typeoid in the .def file. Other than that you'd need to pester the vendors to change their implementations...
Discovery / Please help a challenged Nedi user

I have searched and searched and tried to scan the nodes of OS and Netbios information.
I have used nedi.pl -SxOs and -NS

Still nothing.

Also I cant seem to find nedi.log so I cant check that.

Thanks for ant pointers.
Installation / ESXi host config backup
« Last post by maltyx on May 28, 2017, 01:32:14 PM »
I have a general question about configuration backup for EXSi hosts by NEDI. What kind of backup could be done by NEDI backup job? Host configuration or VMs config? What I see, that there is a backup job for VMWare OS that trying to get .vmx files from datastore1 .. and it fails because there is no such data-store on my Vmware Hosts .. Is there any way to setup data-store names or there should be some kind of auto-config?

for file in /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/*/*.vmx; do echo \#== $file ===========
=====================; cat $file; done
#== /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/*/*.vmx ================================
cat: can't open '/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/*/*.vmx': No such file or directory
Installation / Config backup for HPE Switches with latest firmware
« Last post by maltyx on May 28, 2017, 11:11:40 AM »
I am trying to setup my Nedi (v.1.5) environment to backup configurations of network switches. And I found out a strange problem, on all HPE switches with the latest available for that model firmware
I am getting the following error:
CLI2:Matched 'password:' sending password
CLI3:Password sent
CLI3:Matched 'any key' sending ctrl-Y
Use of uninitialized value $match in pattern match (m//) at /var/nedi/inc/libcli.pm line 795.
Use of uninitialized value $match in concatenation (.) or string at /var/nedi/inc/libcli.pm line 800.
CLI8:Matched '' enable failed

Nedi is logging to switch with user that does not need to enable, and get "Invalid input: enable" from switch OS. The same goes on all switches ("Invalid input: enable"), but on those that have firmware from previous versions, backup job runs successfully..

Affected switches:
HP J9624A 2620-24-PPoEP Switch, revision RA.16.03.0004, ROM RA.15.13
HP J9779A 2530-24-PoEP Switch, revision YB.16.03.0004, ROM YB.15.09
Tx, you can just send them to def@nedi.ch and I'll include them.
Feel free to post them here, for everyone to use immediately...

hit the red power button to reset the cli and than discover it again.
Discovery / No login on Device-Write
« Last post by telecosistem on May 22, 2017, 09:21:22 PM »
I have a lot of issues in order to execute remote commands from Device-Write section.
I have verified all this:

1) On device-list appear all switches correctlty
2) If try to Access from CLI NEDI Access OK through TELNET port
3) SNMP conmunity with RW privilegies

Anyway the issue allways is the same:

Before use another software I would like to know what is the problem.

Best regards,
