Link Aggregation discovery

Hi Experts,

 

How NNM deals with Link Aggregation discovery when device (cisco ASA5500) doesn't report it over SNMP? LCAP protocol is in use. No CDP (because of security reasons).

Is it possible to define rules when to create Aggregated ports or to influence it? Port-channel and member interface have same MAC address and this leads to not built L2 connection to other device as MAC address is not unique.

 

After running configpoll.ovpl on the device this errors occurs:

"Get AggregatePort retrieved no data because this device does not support a way of collecting data."

(Full configpoll in attachment)

Hello,

SNMP is the primary source of information for NNMi. For device connectivy protocols, in the current version, the information needs to be provided via SNMP.

There are two ways that you can influence device connectivity but this will be pure L2 connectivity and not port aggregation.

1) Subnet Connection Rules

2) nnmconnedit.ovpl

You can find information about those two in the online help.

For aggregation, there are no manual tools that you can use to force/influence link aggregation.

Regards,

HP Support

Hello,

 

We expect significant enhancements with NIC Teaming and Link Aggregation in the next NNMi version. Unfortunately, we cannot discuss this untill the version is released officially. I hope the new enhancements will solve the problem. Wait a little bit. The new NNMi version will be released very soon.

Thank you for you answer. We will wait for the new version of NNM as those two proposed solution don't fit to our concept.

From the side sw 3550 ok (image 2), but from side r1941 not.
