Troubleshoot Cisco/MDS Nexus Discovery Failures
Discovery must be successful for every switch that the SolutionPack for Cisco MDS/Nexus displays. The value for the devtype must be FabricSwitch. For most switches, this information is discovered automatically. However, if your switch discovery does not occur with > devtype equal to FabricSwitch, the switch will not appear under the SolutionPack reports.
- Edit device settings.
Open the Device Discovery GUI ( http://yourserver_ip:58080/device-discovery/).
- Exclude the
GENERIC-INTERFACES capability on Cisco MDS/Nexus switches.
Without it, more polling occurs.
- To exclude the capability, edit SNMP agent settings (under Devices), and exclude it.
