Customizing the "Discover Now" button
« 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:


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

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

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

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