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.

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,
