    Dynamic IP address & Network discovery many devices

    schoepi

      Hi,

       

      The idea is to discover thousands devices that are configured with a dynamic IP address

       

      Those devices are "ICMP only"

       

      The option "dynamic ip address" is not available when selecting multiple nodes and editing the node properties

       

      Any idea on :

       

      to turn on this option after the import of those devices in NPM ?

       

      If if it is liked to the DNS hostname field that should be filled, how to do a bulk import based on a file (and the node name) ?

       

      Best regards,

      Pierre

          Noticed we had lots enabled for Dynamic but no address picked up by DNS for it so Dynamic was not going to work - chose to clear those out for now.

           

          Dynamic IP but no DNS to resolve to

          SELECT Nodes.NodeID,

                        Nodes.Caption,

                        Nodes.IP_Address,

                        Nodes.DNS,

                        Nodes.ObjectSubType

          FROM [dbo].[Nodes]

          where dynamicip = 1 and DNS = ''

           

          or to show all show the valid entries:

          Dynamic IP devices and DNS resolved to

          SELECT Nodes.NodeID,

                        Nodes.Caption,

                        Nodes.IP_Address,

                        Nodes.DNS,

                        Nodes.ObjectSubType

          FROM [dbo].[Nodes]

          where dynamicip = 1 and DNS != ''
