You're right, the comment in nedi.conf is in-line now. It's just floor;room;rack;height in rack. The height of the device itself is set in the .def.
I'd only use the number for the floors or sorting has a problem (I generally use U for underground floors). Racks are as tall as the top device requires them to be. I'm considering adding patch panels and who knows...maybe cable management?
Is this device monitored? If so, you need to change "supply" alert in Monitoring-Setup now, as thresholds can be set per device now! The nedi.conf setting serve as policy for new and unmonitored devices...
OK. But could you be more specific on the meaning of every filelds, and about right contents to put in the field itself?
Particularly on characters that may mess field recognition.
And, are them exactly 8 fields ?
A can confirm you that, at least on field "Room", that I use for the location inside the building (not always a room, sometimes racks are in strange places...), both round o square brackets seems to force skips of handling of the "rack height" parameter. In this case no rack view is build. Don't understand why...
Anyway, in my mind the full rack height should be declared somewhere, not calculated from the highest rack position device.
Based on best practices of many companies, we usually put F.O. patch panel on top, going down possible cable management, then hottest devices (UPS, RPS), then switches, and so on (net patch panel, telephony patch panel, etc).
So the real phisical rack height (that may also be non standard) should be defined (somewhere).
Anyway, possibility to put in "Show room" map also other rack object may be very, very nice!!!
3. Failed CLI commands are report now. I noticed that on similar routers as well. So perhaps I should rename IOS-old to IOS-rtr?
I've modified libcli-iopty.pm copying all IOS lines as IOS-rtr (and not renamed IOS-old), then I've modified only the MAC line (using the IOS-old version), then modified 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.834.def changing IOS as IOS-rtr, and now seems OK. I don't know if something other may be messed, but I don't receive more alerts...
Liitle glitch in hover text in page Device Status (syringe). Look at attachment.
