CER Switch port Description

Unanswered Question
Nov 16th, 2007

Can CER pull something like a description of a switchport?

The idea we wanted to go with, was to put the Room number in each switch port as a static entry, for IOS switches this would be in the description field. Then have CER pull the description and place that into the phone's location. Is this possible?

I have this problem too.

Use the Switch Port Details page to assign switch ports to ERLs. This assignment allows Cisco Emergency Responder (Cisco ER) to assign the correct ERL to phones that connect to the network through the configured ports.

To support switches such as the Cisco Catalyst 3750 which have ports that can be uniquely identified by Switch ID, Module ID and Port ID combination, Cisco ER 1.2(3) uses the following port naming convention:

IfName: New field display name for port as given for the switch CLI (for example Fa1/5 or Gi2/0/1)

Port Identifier: replaces the Module ID/Port ID.

It contains {optional} <>/ {optional} <> / <>
