Question about domain/administrative questions with NetBrain
Hello Everyone, I am looking at the devices under Fine Tune/ CLI Configurations failed. I have over 1400 devices that can pull CLI Configurations and a few are failing to pull information due to 111 errors. I tried the setup that worked for the other devices and manually added my own login credentials under the tune process and it fails. I also verified I am able to login to the device with my credentials. Does anyone know what are the causes for the 111 error? Does Netbrain have a list of error codes and possible fixes? 2023-03-20 09:09:37 Begin tune process via Worker NETBRA11(pid: 6668)..2023-03-20 09:10:12 Connecting failed, error code: 111, error description:  Connection refused.2023-03-20 09:10:12 Can not Telnet/SSH to the device.2023-03-20 09:10:12 End tune process
Hello there, I am trying to see if there is suggested practices when doing API calls for Meraki from the Netbrain Server. I get the rate-limit issues and have to wait for sometime before it clears. How does Netbrain usually avoid this when monitoring via API calls? Is the polling cycles longer time? Is it a grab all and then sort the data instead of an api call per device?
We are looking at deploying NetBrain and managing multiple customer networks from it.My question is, for optimum separation from a security standpoint, must there be a separate front server per customer (tenant)? Or can each front server service multiple tenants whilst maintaining separation?The biggest risk we are concerned with is that if a vulnerability exists in the front server, could an attacker on one customer network leverage a front server to gain access to another customer network?It would be a simple matter to have a separate front server for each tenant, but costly where we have lots of customers with small networks.
Hi,My ssh from the Front Server to a network switch fails because the switch responds with a message: Your password has exceeded the maximum lifetime. Please change the password for better protection of your network. Do you want to change it now (Y/N) [N] ?As the task cannot answer this question, it just times-out the connection.Using the CLI, I can type N and get CLI access.But how can that be done in a discover task? I do not want to change the password.Kind regards,Declan Watts, BT
Hi,Does anyone know how to use the API to return the name and ip address of all the devices held in the database for a single domain?I have no problem using the API to connect, select the tenant & domain, and so on. I can see API calls for returning individual devices (if you provide the name and/or ip address).But what if you want to return all of them.For example:Say my NetBrain has 500 devices against a domain. And I have another IP address source (my company’s single truth list), which has 480. I need to get the list of 500 to compare against the 480 so that I can delete the (now obsolete) 20.Yes, I could manually do the deletion, but that is laborious.regardsDeclan

If users have been synchronized to NetBrain with TACACS, do I need to set up those users manually again?
My NetBrain server is already synchronized NetBrain with TACACS. If TACACS is already running correctly with NetBrain, do I need to set up manually the user in NetBrain "Users" menu? I think this is not necessary. Could somebody please confirm? Thanks.
What process should we follow to resolve the discovery issues of "Unknown SNMP SysObjectID" in Fine Tune page?
I have a bunch of devices in the "Unknown SNMP SysObjectID" section of Fine Tune page. Looking for ways to reduce the count of devices in this section. Looking forward to get some support on this. Thanks !
I have started using NB recently and working on drafting a solution to multiple customers. Here I am getting confused between use case for tenant / domains. To ensure complete isolation of data of different clients, which should i prefer. It seems both are logical separation , utilising same backend components. Looking at it from Administration perspective which solution offers better benefit. Moreover what are advantages of using Tenant over domain.
Just to inform you, I stumbled across this little issue.When you change the password for the SSH user in the Network Settings, the credential in the Network Settings is username + new password. However, the credential saved in the Shared Device Setting of the devices is still username + old password.This means you have to proceed like this:Before changing the password you need to create a Device Group containing all devices using the specific credentials. Change the password. Open the Shared Device Settings of one of the devices and reapply the user to the device AND the Device Group.When you did not create the Device Group before changing the password, that Device Group will be empty.
I inherited a Netbrain installation when I was hired and am now coming to the realization that it was setup incorrectly. We are a large company of companies. Currently we have 1 domain under 1 tenant. If I’m wanting to limit the scope that I.T. teams from sub-companies would have to other sub-companies devices and data, I should have multiple domains for each sub-company correct?
All, This is a good resource link below. The table below describes the device vendors and types supported in the system and their discovery methods (via SNMP, CLI and API). For more details about support levels, refer to Tier Support Levels. NetBrain is always updating support for new vendors. https://www.netbraintech.com/docs/ie100/help/index.html?multi-vendor-support-list.htm
I just tried to discover a new device in my NetBrain system and I’m getting an error that looks like NetBrain can’t connect to the device with a timeout error. I’ve confirmed my NetBrain Windows 2012 R2 box can ping it and I can log in with PuTTy, but I just don’t get it. Should I open a support case?
