I found the following issue with LMS 2.6 and LMS 3.0 for the following device types:
cat2950 and cat3550
if the port description for fa0/1 contains '.01' or something else (e.g. '0.3') as the last 3 characters (without the single quotes)
Inventory Collection does not handle the Interface Description' correctly
Do the following:
Switch21(config-if)#descr room 300.01
launch the 'Device Center' page for the device
click on 'Update Inventory'
after the job completes, open the 'Detailed Device Report' for the device
'Interface Description' for the port will be 'FastEthernet0/1 User configured description: room 300.01' instead of just 'FastEthernet0/1'
now change the description for inter f0/1 to 'room 300.02' (without single quotes)
Switch21(config-if)#descr room 300.02
do the same as before and in the Detailed Device Report the 'Interface Description' for ***fa0/2**** will be
'FastEthernet0/2 User configured description: room 300.02'
while the 'Interface Description' for fa0/1 will be correct;
has anybody else observed this issue?
I tested some other device types which handles the port description correctly so it seems to be an issue with the RME device packages for these devices.
Attached is a screenshot ot the 'Detailed Device Type'
