Its been a while since I have been up here. Hope im at the right place. We just upgraded one of our Cisco ie3000 switches to one gig between it and our core switch. We basically swapped out the SFP connections on the fiber on each end. On the Solarwinds map we noticed there is a red dotted line on it between the two devices. I was wondering if there is something we have to adjust on the solar winds side. On the IE3000 switch there is another port that goes to another IE3000 switch that is still at 100mbs. Im wondering if that may have something to do with it. We will eventually be changing all of those switches to 1 gig.
I believe replacing the SFP will cause the switch to generate a new SNMP IndexID for the interface. You probably need to delete that interface from NPM and then list resources and re-add the "new" interface. Depending on how you did you map you probably will need to redo that connection as well.
Do I have to select Edit to delete interface? There is a box beside the interface I can select. I was wondering if I could just select that and then Edit?
You can't delete an interface from the interface's details page actually, have to go to manage nodes, expand the node object and check the boxes for any interfaces you are removing, then list resources to get the replacement
Ok thanks so much. I really havent done a lot of changes to the map. We have Network Atlas so Im thinking maybe do it there. I will see if I can figure that part out. We have quite a few more of these switches to do so I guess I should do them one by one so the map can update accordingly.
