Firewalls being discovered as Unix CI's

Jump to solution

We have some Affinity Firewalls with an OID of <oidToHostClass class="unix" oid="1.3.6.1.4.1.8072.3.2.10" os="Linux" />. Hence the devices are coming in as Unix CI and not as Firewall CI uder Net Devices. Any ideas how to adjust this without affecting any othe Unix devices?

 

Thanks in advance.

If the firewalls have the same sysObjectID as Linux servers (and you have other Linux servers with this sysObjectID), then you would need to edit the script to ensure they are discovered correcty (e.g. be hostname if it begins with 'fw' or something)... you wouldn't be able to do this out of the box.  If they are the ONLY hosts with that sysObjectID (e.g. you don't have any regular Linux systems that have this sysObjectID), then you'd need only to modify the oidToHostClass.xml file.

Please attach the properties of the discovered firewall. Maybe an attribute could be use to identify that it is a firewall and run an enrichment.
