- Blue, 1500 points or more
this is what I currently found about the new CSDiscovery and how the management IP and the Display Name are determined (mainly from what jclarke wrote on the forum);
I am not sure if it is correct and covers every aspect but *ANY* comment on this is highly appreciated
- I add it as an attachment so comments can be made if necessary -
I found a main difference for 'Resolve by Loopback' in the documentation and in some threads here on the forum.
In some threads it states that the lowest ifIndex determines which loopback is choosen - in the documentation I found the statement that it is the loopback with the highest address...
("If there are multiple loopback IP addresses, the highest loopback address is used to manage the device" - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_common_services_software/3.1.1/user/guide/dcr.html#wp1469536)
WHAT IS CORRECT ??
and if it IS the highest address, what is higher 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 - because sometimes alphabetical sorting is used (from a programmatically view)- an was used for most parts of LMS (at least until LMS 2.6)
A LAST QUESTION:
Will the Discovery Filters now come into play AFTER the determination of the management IP or BEFORE (when the first IP of a device is found) ???
