with NeDi V1.08 with some patches I have with cisco device type WS-C2960G-48TC-L problems to display the interface description. At NeDi Device Definition Generator I walk over the interface descriptions with OID or without OID and I can read the Alias. But when I start nedi.pl -v -t/a <deviceIP> the table column for Alias is empty. At Device Status page the Info column there are no Alias/Interface Description but CDP: <CDPdevice>.  Any hints what is going wrong here?


PS: Manual-Discovery (1.0.7) with 1 seed ... it is the previous version number of NeDi

$ sudo -u www-data /var/nedi/nedi.pl -v -t <deviceIP>
PTY :Loaded
LWP :Loaded
OUI :19777 NIC vendor entries read
RDEV:429 devices read from nedi.devices

RUSR:4 entries (groups & 8 AND (phone != "" OR email != "")) read from nedi.users
SEED:<deviceIP> added for discovery

Compare to defs of similar switches. There should be a IFalix entry to index back to the IFMIB...
Please consider Other-Invoices on your NeDi installation for an annual contribution, tx!

Hello Remo,

Thanks for the hint.
