Alcatel network switches

I am working as LAN administrator and I am working on a task requiring the following:

Allocate all the active ports in number of 45 Zlan Alcatel network switches installed in different area\buildings. The required data should be in the following format:

IP Address + MAC Address + Slot + Port

I got the following data through % Networking\ IP \ IPMAC commands:

IP Address MAC Address Slot / Intf (Port)

10.190.244. 3 00C04F:210859 3 / 1

10.190.244. 7 00C04F:2643FD 3 / 3

10.190.244. 17 00022D:387CB5 3 / 5

10.190.244. 76 00D095:47AD40 3 / 7

10.190.244. 97 00022D:157B85 3 / 2

10.190.244. 98 00022D:19C4BD 3 / 2

10.190.244. 99 00022D:19C445 3 / 2 00022D:19C410 3 / 14

As you can see that port 2 is repeated three times because another switch (I will call it Sub Switch) is connected in this port (Port 2 of what I will call it main switch).

My problem here is that I can not know the name (or IP address) of the Sub switch (which connected in port 2 of the main switch) in order to implement the same commands and got the same data (Active ports in the sub switch).

Currently to overcome this problem I referred to the switches list (45 switches) where I implemented the same commands over all of them one by one (through a Script).

What I want now is a way or command that indicates the name or IP address of the sub switch (which is connected in port 2 on the above example).

Please help.

Thank you.

Re: Alcatel network switches

I believe I answered this in another post, but here it is again.

While anything is possible, I don't think you are likely to get good advice on how to use Alcatel switches in a forum such as this one.
