Server to Switch connectivity in uCMDB V 10.33

Dear Freinds,

We have discovered the servers in UCMDB by installing the agents on remote servers and imported the network component’s Switches and routers via Integration from NNMi.
Now in UCMDB how we can find Server to switch connectivity; even to switch-port?

kindly respond.

Regards

Dmitry

Please to get TQL query for server to switch or server to switch port connectivity, it would be useful for others.

If it is confidential please to rename hostnames and show us TQL query.

Re: Server to Switch connectivity in uCMDB V 10.33

From my experiience, If you have servers in NNMi than NNMi will map the L2 connection to a switch port (assuming a physical server).

Having NNMi sending network topology doesn't give you the L2 connection to the server unless the server is also in NNMi and connected to a switch port.

The other way around this is having uCMDB do network discovery but I haven't heard a lot of good reports on doing it this way.

In the case of virtualization you could have NNMi do all of the virtualization discovery and send it to uCMDB or have uCMDB do the virtualization discovery but you still need the ESXi hosts in NNMi to get the L2 connection.

Re: Server to Switch connectivity in uCMDB V 10.33

We have discovered the switches as well from the UCMDB now via SNMP, still the relationship from server to switch is missing.

Kindly suggest.

Are you saying that no Layer2Connection CIs are reported?

Re: Server to Switch connectivity in uCMDB V 10.33

Hi John,

 

I have disovered the V-center then ESX host.

Now the VM machines are showing Virtualization Layer Software which directs me to VM switch.

Now next how I can reach to Physical switch/switch port?

I still something missing between switch and ESX host?

please advise.

Regards

Fayaz

Re: Server to Switch connectivity in uCMDB V 10.33

You are missing the Layer2Connection CIs. You will need to discover them from both sides:

  • Vmware side by enabling the reportLayer2Connecttion parameter
  • physical switch side by running the L2C discovery jobs using SNMP or shell.
