Ports to Ignore
« on: February 26, 2010, 05:29:10 PM »
hi everyone,

can we tell Nedi to ignore a specific port (such as link/trunk port) during discovery.
and how ? (sysobj files, nedi.conf...)

thanks in advance

Ignore for what?  :)
Looke at border, if you mean discovery of neighbours...

i have small edge switch with 3/4 users per switch. Macaddress of the end user is not detected on port switch
but on the port uplink of core switch.
I thought if i can disable discovery on the uplink core switch, macaddress will be discover at the right place.
???
difficult to me to be clear... french accent... sorry...
thanks in advance Remo

pas de probleme :) If the uplink is detected, edge ports will be preferred over uplink ports. Are you using discovery protocols on those switches? Add a static link (Topology-LinkEd), in case you don't see any comment on the uplink interfaces...

whaaoo ! what an accent !!! allez les bleus...
i understand now static link idea. i thought it was just information in
a DB... Obviously it's more than that. Nedi's father is great...

I don't use nedi with discovery option. Just nedi -L -I   .
If protocol discovery is used on those switch (Nortel so maybe
NDP or SONMP) , what is consequence with Nedi and nedi discovery ?

merci.

ok, static link is added . and i don't see any comment on the uplink interface. good
But edge switch is not SNMP so all mac adresse are detected on the static uplink. Quite Normal,
isn't it, Remo ??
merci d'avance
