LMS 3.0 DFM duplicate ip addresses

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2007


I have got duplicate IPs (backup interfaces) on my managed devices and DFM generates alerts about it. Is there a way to tell DFM not to do so? Marking an interface as unmanaged doesn't help. The critical IPs don't even appear in the detailed device view.

I have this problem too.

Reason is When different IP addresses belonging to the same device are added as separate devices, due to a timing issue, they are discovered and listed as separate devices. This is incorrect and causes invalid DuplicateIP alarms.

and also Check your high availabilty features wheteher its confiugred properly. ie GLBP, HSRP and VRRP.
