  • 1.  Supported device models for XMC vlan definiton tab

    Posted 07-11-2018 10:58
    Hi,

    We are using XMC latest 8.1.3.x. When I use "Configure Device" option on OneView some devices has "VLAN Deffiniton" tab and some don't. It seems Enterasys A2/A4/B5/C5/S4 models has this tab. But X440/X430 models on 16.x firmware does not have this tab. Also none of the third party devices (Cisco C2960/C3560/HP 2530/HP2920) has this tab.

    So how does XMC decide to show this vlan tab? What does it look for? Or is the supported models hard-coded? Does this functionality is somehow extensible by our side by writing some plugins for Cisco or HP for example?

    Regards,

    Rahman

    HI Rahman - In XMC 8.x we show that tab if the device supports the standard Q-BRIDGE-MIB.

    Hi Steve. HP 2530 series supports 802.1q bridge mibs. But XMC does not show vlan editing tab for these switches. Is this a bug?

    As far as I understand it, support for Q-BRIDGE-MIB is not dynamically probed, but XMC has a list of devices (via the respective SNMP OID) that are known to actually support the Q-BRIDGE-MIB sufficiently well to be used for VLAN configuration.
    Anybody, please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Thanks,Erik

    So I need to find what file to edit for it to work. I looked into .json files under " /usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/appdata/System/deviceTypes/" but could not figure out what to edit. It seems Extreme.json file has some lines about "menuFlexViewFilters" but these are about "device view" tabs not "configure devices" tab;

    "menuFlexViewFilters" : {
    "value" : "Bridge,Entity MIB,Interface,LLDP,RMON,RMON2,Standard,VLAN,Node Alias,Secure Networks,XOS,",
    "type" : "STRING"
    },

    Regards,
