Is there a way to manage port poe on and Exos switch through NetSight


We have a customer who wants to reset inline-power on an Exos port using NetSight. I was trying to create a column in a FlexView and thought I found the right mib.

extremePethPortResetPower OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX INTEGER { set(1), clear(2) }
MAX-ACCESS read-write
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"Resets the power on the port. Reading always returns clear(2)"
::= { extremePethPsePortEntry 5 }

I have tried this on several code versions including 16.1 but always get the red X.
NetSight is 6.3.0.162 and 6.3.0.168 same results on both
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try setting it using Mibtools first, to take the complexity of Flexviews out of it?
I get an output from the mib query using the mib tool but did not know disabling the port from there would be possible.

You should be able to set to the 1 or 2 value above, if you get a set failed, make sure you have write credentials set correctly.
You could try changing sysLocation or sysLocation for instance, a very common writeable MIB. That would be a baseline
Ok so I found that and am able to get it to work through the mib tool useing
extremePethPortResetPower=1.3.6.1.4.1.1916.1.27.2.1.1.5
set powers it down and clear powers it up.

In the flexview I do not even get the same output. In the mib tool it shows clear in the flexview it shows N/A

Here is a link to the tpl file
https://www.dropbox.com/s/wo9w3klwdfhgims/POE%20Status%203.tpl?dl=0

It seems like there has to be a check box or something that is making the FlexView send the information differently than the mib tool is.

Thanks for your help

Hello, David!

Also Extreme have xkit portal wich have many usefull apps.
For example for PoE - https://xkit.extremenetworks.com/app/search?keyword=PoE

Thank you!

Thank you

This is very interesting information and I will investigate deployment of this at our office for testing.

Unfortunately this does not help with the issue I am currently working on. Our customer has some problem cameras that require a reboot from time to time. That is why I am trying to get this flexview to work.

But again thanks for the information I look forward to investigating it further.

That xkit site may be decommissioned soon. All of the content has been migrated to gitHub.

David, can you send in a chunk of screen capture to show me what your seeing and doing? And also what specific switch your using it against.
Thanks!



Current testing is on a 450, we are in the process of upgrading the network to 460-G2's, I will get you a screen shot from the Flexview as soon as possible. One of the most confusing or perhaps revealing things is that the which displays "clear" above displays "NA" in the FlexView.

Thanks

David,
Try this instead. It may not work, but try to save off as .tpl and load it. It will momentarily set, then return to clear. It should reset your port.
We have built this already.

I tried saving this as a tpl file but NetSight wont open it. Can you post a link to the tpl file or tell me what I am doing wrong?

I have to be very close. Right?

David, A coworker created them previously. I sent you them directly. Let me know if you get them. We are assuming you want the port one. It should 'set' then go back to clear to reboot the PoE device.

Mike,

Thank you very much for the files the are very helpful.
My problem was that I was trying to add a column to a flexview that was looking at interfaces instead of instances. Does that make sense? If not I can attach a screen shot.
I am working with this new information to try and give the customer exactly what they want. Is it possible to add a user defined column?

You should be able to customize those Flexviews and "save as" to something else. I think you know well how to do that based on the previous flexview you created. So I would modify as needed and test.
But in general, to add a column, you would open flexview->Properties->Columns->Find OID->Click New
See below - #2 and #4 are outputs of arrows #1 and then #3.
You can then drag and drop those columns around till it's visually pleasing.

Yes,

I have that procedure down. All I really need though to make the customer happy is a column they can type in, like the User Data columns on the properties device tab.
So I just need to add a column that does not have a mib associated with it.
