False Duplicate Seed for nonexistent nodes

Symptoms

Network Node Manager (NNMi) may not discover some nodes even when inserted via seed presenting as a result of the discovery "Node not created (duplicate seed)". However, these nodes are not in NNMi Database.

Unable to add seed - Node not created (duplicate seed)

 

Diagnosis

NNMi uses a number of complex algorithms to detect that a node being processed is really a duplicate of another node in the database. In some cases, NNMi compares MAC addresses to try to determine if a node has received a new IP address due to a DHCP lease expiring. A possible solution is to use macdedupexceptions (see below for instructions).

Solution

(1)  Create file macdedupexceptions.txt file in below path:
sudo touch /var/opt/OV/shared/nnm/conf/disco/macdedupexceptions.txt

(2)  Provide full permission for this file using:                                                                                                            sudo chmod 777 /var/opt/OV/shared/nnm/conf/disco/macdedupexceptions.txt

(3) Open the file, add entry for sysOID of device in the first line: for example> .1.3.6.1.4.1.8072.3.2.10

Save the file
(4) Restart NNMi services (must do to take effect) ovstop -c ovstart -c

Note: You need to enter the SysOID for the specific device.

EXAMPLE

The following is an example of a macdedupexceptions.txt file:

# F5 BIG-IP Pb200 loadbalancer device
.1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.3.4.19
