UT End hosts report - Notes

Unanswered Question
Feb 19th, 2009

The UT End hosts report has a 'notes' column, which the help facility states are entered by the user. How, and where can information be entered against interfaces so that it shows up in the Notes column?

I have this problem too.

The notes column can only be updated from within User Tracking. This field is not automatically discoverable. Simply click on a MAC address in the UT report, then enter the desired notes. They will be persisted across acquisitions.

Thanks, looks good. I assume this is tied to the MAC Address though. Is there any way of tying information to a port number in CiscoWorks? I need to be able to record wall point numbers to specific ports.

That can be done simply be configuring a port description on the device. CiscoWorks will then display that port description in various interfaces.

To do this on IOS devices, just configure a description under an interface:

interface Gi0/1

description Jack 359.1

For CatOS, set the port name to the desired value:

set port name 1/1 Jack 359.1
