    Help finding what interfaces contain my servers

    ekonowal

      Here's the scenario...

      100 sites, I know which switch to access at each site.
      need to find 4 servers, they will have 4 of 9 possible IP addresses.

      Here's my current way to accomplish it... i.e. looking for 10.11.2.5

      telnet to 10.11.1.1
      ping 10.11.2.5 (to determin it exists, and populate ARP cache)
      show arp | include 10.11.2.5
      show mac-address-table | include {mac accress found in previous step}
      --that yields the interface--

      You can see this is very time consuming to do for 900 addresses.  Any way to streamline this with Solarwinds tools?

      <he asked hopefully>

      And this actually point out the need for another ping tool... I'll post that separetly.
