CiscoWorks Management-IP

In my devices I've two Loopback-IPs configured.

For example:

loopback 0

ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.255

loopback 1

ip address 2.2.2.2 255.255.255.255


Is it possible to define in CW that the IP from loopback 0 is the Management-IP.

In the Discovery-Settings I only can say under "Preferred Management IP" -> "Use LoopBack Address"

But I want the Loopback0 as Management-IP not Loopback1

Re: CiscoWorks Management-IP

The discovery algorithm is set to choose the highest loopback address. So if you want to have loopback 0 as the management IP, you need to assign a higher IP to it. See this discovery DOC which has very detailed explanations.

Thanks for your answer!

It is not possible to change the IPs but now I know how it works.

I will try a workaround over the nameresolution.
