Topic: Strange Results after Network Discovery and Network Inventory
we are currently evaluating GLPI v0.84.7 and FI 0.84+3.2. We have deployed one agent (version 220.127.116.11) on an Ubuntu box and tried to use Network Discovery und Network Inventory.
There are several strange results, which we can not understand. The discovery finds and creates several devices and everything looks fine. But after a following inventory, there are duplicate network ports on various devices.
1) First, after the discovery, the "management port" gets created
2) After the network inventory the other interfaces are created.
You can see there is the same mac address on two ports. The IP address is displayed on the "management port" but the other "real" port is connected to a switch. By the way, all informations are correct, but there should be only one interface, correct?
Something you can not see in the above screenshot:
After the first discovery+inventory the "management port" has an connection to Port N/A on an unknown HUB. This HUB is created every time the task run. Before i did the above screenshot i've delete this HUB.
Here is a screenshot of an discovered hp procurve switch, where can also see this mysterious "management port" and one hub (where almost all devices are "connected"), but they really don't exist:
(link in next post - too more links in message....)
The real problem on this is, that every network port which is connect to this "hub" gets never connected to the real port on the real switch.
These are our switches we currently use:
HP ProCurve 2650 (J4899A) H.08.02
HP ProCurve 2848 (J4904A) I.08.07
HP ProCurve 2510G-48 N.10.02
3Com Baseline 2952-SFP Plus 119
Also we use Zyxel NWA3160-N Access Points, they are duplicated each run of an discovery/inventory. There is no serial number detected for this device, but shouldn't there be a rule which is based on mac-addresses, so that a device isn't duplicated even if there is no serial?
Can anyone of you support us in getting this to work correctly?
Thanks in advance,
