Laptop user tracking

In a campus LAN.....I need to get the real time information or indication by any network mgmt tool....that user_A at this memoment connected to which access switch & port, based on that I can understand the location of user_A. The information should be real time, means any change of user_A location accordingly the software can identify the new access switch & switch port too

Re: Laptop user tracking

Then the "dynamic user tracking" feature of Campus Manager 5.x may be of interest to you:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_campus_manager/5.0/user/guide/whatsnew.html

It does have several prerequisites such as enabling CISCO-MAC-ADDRESS-NOTIFICATION-MIB traps on your Cisco devices (not necessarily all of which has this support), enabling DHCP snooping, and deploying UTLite on Windows workstations.

If Dynamic UT isn't "real-time" enough for you, you may also want to check out the SwitchPortMapper.exe utility in Solarwinds Engineer's Toolset that does what the name says, as often as you're willing to run the discovery.
