Discovery of IP addresses of connected Nodes

(1/2) > >>

Hello, NeDi gurus

I have a bunch of Cisco switches where I can see proper MAC addresses of connected nodes but no IP addresses.  Could you point me to the information on how those IP addresses can be discovered.  Do I need to tweak .def files or there are some other tricks.  I read that there is a way to populate MAC addresses from ARP tables via SSH.  How can I incorporate it into NeDi configuration?

Thanks a lot!

When this is a Layer-3 Switch (Mode) it should work out of the box. Maybe you can post your .def file.

I believe you are correct.  The switches where IP addresses are not discovered are Layer2 switches.  Now, what can I do with those?  I do not know the inner working of NeDi.  To my mind it should use the ARP tables from the Layer3 switches and populate Layer2 switches with IP addresses.

I hope someone figured out how to find IP addresses of the devices connected to Layer2 switches.
