Topic: unknown devices
There's a couple of issues with discovery that create a lot of work to clean up:
1) The match for snmp models seems to be a bit too strict. As an example, we have a number of cisco 3560's and 3550's and there are several different snmp models in fusioninventory that cover 3550/3560 models. None of them match the switches during the scan. Since the cisco mib is pretty much the same for these (at least for what glpi is collecting), shouldn't there just be one model that matches the model number string only?
2) If you force the model to be one of the 3550/3560 models, the next run collects all the data, including port connections, then sets the model back to the default one (73 something). This happens every time the scan runs. If I set the model manually I expect it to stay set...
3) the unknown devices show the ip and mac address on the connections tab, but the ip and mac fields on the listing and fusion snmp pages are empty (sometimes the ip is populated, but I've yet to see the mac address be populated. This results in devices not being linked to existing devices and in some cases the devices get imported as a new device every time the scan runs. This is especially problematic with our cisco phones, as they all exist in glpi but the linking doesn't work because fusioninventory is not correlating the connection info from the switch with the existing device.
