vlan tab (device) netsight

Hello guys,

I am trying to manage the VLANs of switches through NetSight (Console> VLAN Tab and select "Device" radio), but by clicking on the link (Retrieve on top right) the NetSight should seek the information existing on the device selected VLANs, gives? As a "show vlan" and bring it to the NetSight?

Regardless of Switch selected, this procedure is not bringing any information and gives no error message in the log of NetSight or switches.

In our LAB (Senary 3) ...
- SNMP configuration:#

# Module snmpMaster configuration.


configure snmpv3 delete community "private"

configure snmpv3 delete community "public"

configure snmpv3 add community "snmptld" name "snmptld" user "v1v2c_ro"

configure snmpv3 add community "snmptld_rw" name "snmptld_rw" user "v1v2c_rw"

I do not know if it's relevant but OneView the information of the VLANs are shown (although without the information from the IPs of each vlan) but can not really manage there.

I tested in 3 senarios:
Senary 1:
- Client with Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit + NetSight v6.2.0.211
- Switches Park x440 (XOS v15.7.1.4)

Senary 2:
- Customer VM NetSight Appliance 64bit v6.2.0.224
- Switches Park: x250, x440 (XOS varied v)

Senary 3:
- Our Lab with VM NetSight Appliance 64bit v6.2.0.224
- Switches: X450e-48p (XOS v15.3.5.2 patch1-3) and x440-48p (XOS v15.6.1.4)

I read the documentation and HELP of NetSight and found no additional configuration that needs to be done.

Can anyone tell if lacking something to be configured on the switch or NetSight?

Hi Murilo,
I have exactly the same issue. I've contacted Extreme about it. Apparently Xos devices are not yet fully manageble through Netsight.
This is supposedly 'fixed' in Netsight 6.3, but I hear different story's. It also could be that only the G2 generation Xos switches will be fully manageble.

The VLAN Tab you see in Console will not be used with XOS-Devices.
All that functionality is being ported to Oneview.

Here is an example of it from the map view , where we set it.

Hello Mike,

Thanks for your answer. How can you set this vlan tab?
I only have map, links and Mlag. The netsight version is

Here, we have "Map" and "Links" only (v6.2.0.224)

I try to create a vlan "NSVlan02" to 2 devices and in both were successfully created though i don't know why the Warn message he gave.

I will need to re-test with 6.2. The server I used was the latest, the release.
If you have the opportunity to upgrade, I would. I am assuming it's new functionality.

We checked this morning, it is only available via the device-mapview in 6.3.0.xxx
Great! Thanks Mike, I will upgrade to 6.3.
