Detailed Device Report Output

Answered Question
Feb 9th, 2009

What would cause "Interface Description" to be populated with: FastEthernet0/0 User configured description: fa0/0 1 bg-nb-r1 NORTEL FE).1, in the "Processor Port Interfaces" section of the Detailed Device Report and the very next interface fa0/1, not show any results when an interface description has been defined, shows only FastEthernet0/1?

RME 4.1.1 is part of LMS 3.0.1. RME 4.2 (where the fix exists) is part of LMS 3.1.

This sounds like my bug, CSCsm31447.


The Interface Description for certain interfaces may have the wrong user-configured value, or no user-configured value at all. This can be seen in the inventory reports in Resource Manager Essentials which show interface details (e.g. the Detailed Device Report).


This will occur for devices which have ports that have descriptions that end in a number. If the number at the very end of the description is not the same as ifIndex, then the RME reports will not accurately reflect that description.


There is no workaround.

It is fixed in RME 4.2 now. I have also written a patch for RME 4.1.1.
