Possibility Usertracking with 3rd party switches


I want to ask for a possibility of tracking endstations behind 3rd party switches (in our case Microsense) directly connected to cisco Switches in LMS 3.x Usertracking.

How is it possible to extend the LMS by our own for this? In which files we need to add the OID's of the Microsense switches? Which Microsense OID's we will need for UT?

many thanks in advance for your hints, Steffen

Re: Possibility Usertracking with 3rd party switches

This is not possible. For User Tracking to acquire end hosts on switches, those switches must be Data Collected by Campus Manager. This requires that Campus has some code which describes the switch. You cannot simply add a sysObjectID to a file, and have Campus Manager understand how to manage a switch. Campus Manager is only designed to work with Cisco equipment.

What you will see in this situation is that the Microsense switches will themselves show up as end hosts unless they are trunking to the Cisco switches. In that case, UT will ignore these Cisco switch ports (by default). You can configure UT to acquire end hosts on those trunk ports, however, by going to Campus Manager > Admin > User Tracking > Acquisition > Configure Trunk for End Host Discovery.
