UD Layer 2 Disocvery

Hi,

 

Please let me know how UD layer 2 discovery takes place at backend and what information it looks for in network device to draw the topology .

 

As per my understanding,UD requires end server CI discovered to build topology whereas NNM doesnot require end devices to be managed but still it shows the end node connectiity with host names. For this statement , please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.

 

 

 

with regards,

Nick

Nick;

 

If you're interested in server -> access switch topology, both NNMi and UCMDB require the server and switches in their topology to create a layer 2 connection between them.  UD discovery is more limited than NNMi, but can still discover some layer 2 connections, whereas a pure network tool, like NNMi, does a better job of discovering these connections.

 

Best Regards;
