When performing a Compass search in NetSight 6.2.0.199 with Summit X460-G2 switches, only MAC Addresses are displayed.  No IP Addresses are populated.

Is there any update on this, this is rather annoying as it was very useful on enterasys switches.

It is very handy to trace what port a device is plugged in just by IP address.

Netsight: 6.2.0.221
Extreme: X460-G2-48p-GE4 running 16.1.1.4-patch1-1

Hi,

Did you enabled node-alias on the switch? It's not enabled by default, you have to do it.
Anticipating the question around default settings in EXOS, I'd encourage you to try ztp+ when adding a new switch (requires 21.1 or later on the switch), and then with EMC 8.0 you have the possibility to automatically run a script when that switch is added to a Site. That script could be your own default settings definition.

hy stephane,

thank you for your reply

i enabled nodealias on all ports:
configure nodealias ports all maxentries 8192

in java gui netsight console i still got no ip adress shown

in weg gui i can find entries with interface rtif

why can't i see it on java gui?

BTW: the show iparp command is also usefull in this context

Hi Guys,

Maybe you need to configure xml-notification ... Take a look at my guide on how to make it work (by the way, it only works on 22.2...

Best regards, 

-Leo
