LMS 4.1 User Tracking

Does someone know if or what is the best way to do a acquistion on ip address on devices that appear to be dead until ping before LMS4.1 reports onn them. For example we run acquistion on a branch we do not see, howver we ping it from my desktop and then run user tracking and then it shows up.

Re: LMS 4.1 User Tracking

One option when setting up discovery is to do ping sweep of the target subnet(s). It has pros and cons. Reference page 5 of the LMS 4.1 (not just) for Dummies Guide.

OTOH if an device appears inactive until pinged, it must not be typically generating traffic to its default gateway (or that gateway is not managed by LMS) as that would be the normal source of information about the host (ip-mac correlation anyhow) in a default discovery type.

Hope this helps.
