Due to having another IP address Management system I was intreged on how the Solarwinds Product matched up.
These are the issues I have come accrossed in my short review.
1) I was able to put in a duplicate Subnet range (very bad).
2) I can't import the subnet range with the IP's. You have to do each individually (No time for that).
3) No option to discover subnets via a seed router (This is old school and should already be there).
4) No user filter capability.
5) Price is Extremely high.
1) I like the layout
2) I also like the event logger.
Please let me know if anyone has solutions to the above issues.
Good feedback, on #2 can you describe more what you are seeing? #3, we already have an enhancement logged in the system and #4 is high on our priority release for a future version.
#2 issue is when importing from a file, there is no option for the subnet size. Just an option for the IP address (Network ID).
What I did to make sure I hade the right import documentation. I created a small subnet and then exported it. From there I then filled in any associated information listed inside the export file.
Here are the list of columns that are exported.
|Last Boot Time|
|System Object ID|
As you can see there is a column for the Subnet ID but nothing for the mask.
When importing a file your pull down options do not give you a choice for subnet size.
If you try to import a CSV from the tool set Subnet List export. It imports all the ip's but then if you have a network like mine were I have over 900 subnets there is an issue were you have to individually enter each subnet size.
If you want screen shots just let me know.
