I'm trying to use SNMP to find the Port Number from a MAC address on our switches.
I follow the procedure described in this document which works fine for most of our switches:
But in some locations the switches are clustered and only the command switch has an IP address.
As far as I understand the members switches should he accessible with community name [email protected] But this collides with the naming for VLANS which may be reached at [email protected]. And I need to specifiy the VLAN to get the correct Port Name, if I follow the procedure above.
Is there any way I can solve this?
One possible solution would be to give IP addresses to the member switches too. I have not tried it yet. One of the reasons to cluster the switches was to save real IP-addresses and not have to give them private addresses.
