LMS device discovery of standby (hsrp) address

Unanswered Question
Aug 19th, 2008

We have two devices (4500) that are part of the same HSRP group. See below for their admin VLAN settings:

(see attachment for config)

Within Common Services we've defined both devices using their primary @IP (.251 and .252) and everything works fine, except for the fact that Campus Manager's Device Discovery finds not only .252 with its primary @IP but also with its HSRP @IP (see below):


32. UnReachable

33. C4507-IOS . Reachable

34. C4506-IOS . Reachable


We'd like to stop Device Discovery from discovering that unnecessary @IP. I know that we can exclude IP addresses from discovery but this field is already defined to include IP addresses.

(You can only exclude or include IP addresses

or ranges; you cannot do both.)

Any suggestions ?



I have this problem too.

While it wouldn't prevent Campus from discovering the interface, you could add a DCR exclude filter which would prevent the device from being added to DCR. That is done under Common Services > Device and Credentials > Exclude.

I have the same situation with HSRP groups and the virtual IP-address.

It will be discovered but will not be added in DCR on my LMS.

I was wondering about the address but rather it doesn't care I think.
