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.
When I calculate paths, the system creates duplicates of defined devices causing branches in the diagrams despite ultimately finding the correct path. My example is to calculate a path from the FrontServer to an switch at another facility. The system duplicates the first hop as both the defined gateway device and also an End System (not defined). The path for the end system ultimately fails, and the defined gateway device path works. I will also share that a Trace works correctly.Does anyone know how to prevent the undefined End System from being created?
UUID file is missing on this Linux instance after migrating the NetBrain DB Server from old Cluster to new.
This is a transcript of the outcome of a Tech Support call with NetBrain and I: I just want to specify that it is the file in /sys/class/dmi/id/product_uuid that is missing and it is the system uuid that is missing not a filesystem uuid…!!Has anyone ever come across this before after migrating their DB Server and are then forced to reactivate the licence…!? My colleague and I have thought about the following: CHMOD 777 the full PATH and then create a new ‘product_uuid’ file with the legit licensed key and as the issue we face at the moment is that the if you try to amend inside that directory using ‘ROOT Credentials’ you receive the following error = ‘Operation is prohibited’
How do I access the built-in Device/Module/Interface Properties in Qapps such as:ManagementIP()Model()Vendor()SerialNumber()Instead of writing my own Parser(s), I would like to retrieve these values from the built-in Device Property Attributes. See page 207-213 for list of Device/Interface/Module Property attributes listed in PDF “How_to_Define_and_Use_Procedures.PDF” at Netbrain’s website: https://www.netbraintech.com/ftp/EE54G/How_to_Define_and_Use_Procedures.pdf As you can see below, I have a custom variable Column named mgmt_ip. The intent is to get the device’s management ip. I have tried different variations, including calling a function, but without success.Thanks in advance for your help! Best RegardsDavid
I am looking to see if there is a report or an easy QAPP that can query a device (like a core switch) and return all configured IP addresses (some devices have multiple VRFs). We have a few initiatives that this would be a handy set of data (dynamic on demand) for us to have.
I’m looking to create a Run Book or Intent that will show me mac addresses only for specific interfaces on a Cisco switch in support of a CRQ network change. I don’t want to see 20 or 30 interfaces, just the 5 I am changing. Then I’d like to compare a before and after on just those five interfaces.
Hello,could anybody share an experience how to overcome the limitations of site NetBrain site maps?Having a single L3 and L2 map available only, e.g.?Let’s say I’d like to create another L3 or L2 page focusing on DMZ only, showing more details (or other subnets/links) than the default L3 page used for the whole site?I know I can duplicate the default L3 or L2 page.But the duplicated page will not get the devices updated automatically.On the other hand: I was thinking about using the duplicated page as a “snapshot” of the default L3 or L2 page. But no matter of page settings I use, the links are always updated by daily benchmarks on the duplicated pages. So the only way to keep the links not updated is to save the map as a file to my private folder?Any ideas? Thanks,Milan
Looking for some resolution on the above error. While discovering the device using seed discovery i am getting the below error:Failed:SNMP++ Get Error; SNMP++:SNMP request time outThe SNMP configuration on the network device is correct and using SNMP and SSH method for discovering the devices. Any help to t-shoot this issue.
I’m loading a new pair of servers I wondering if I should move the MongoDB to the a different drive then where the OS is running, I have 127 SDA and 250 SDB I think with the requirements in the for mongodb I would best install it on SDB drive or should I just delete the SDB and expand SDA?
Is there any way to apply more than one dataview within a single Qapp? I have created a Qapp that has two data tables, however even though you can create what looks like two dataviews, the definition of those only references Table 1 and I have not found a way to change the reference.
Do you have any device health check qapps? If not, how about this idea: check device hardware with various commands, e.g. Cisco's show module, show environmentshow moduleMod Ports Card Type Model Serial No.--- ----- -------------------------------------- ------------------ ----------- 4 48 48-port 10/100/1000 RJ45 EtherModule WS-X6148A-GE-TX x 5 5 Supervisor Engine 2T 10GE w/ CTS (Acti VS-SUP2T-10G xMod MAC addresses Hw Fw Sw Status--- ---------------------------------- ------ ------------ ------------ ------- 4 f 4.2 8.4(1) 15.5(1)SY8 Ok 5 d 1.3 12.2(50r)SYS 15.5(1)SY8 MajFailMod Sub-Module Model Serial Hw Status ---- --------------------------- ------------------ ----------- ------- ------- 5 Policy Feature Card 4 VS-F6K-PFC4 SAL16159W6L 1.
I have a runbook which has 2 Qapps and 1 Gapp, each of the Qapps generate Alerts based on the conditions and I can manually export the Alerts in csv format. Here, looking for a way to export the Alerts of Qapps/runbook using python or existing Netbrain APIs.
So when I run a show command on a device in my Domain within NetBrain it takes about 30 seconds to retrieve the live data from the device so some critical data about the device are not seen in the output or result. But when I ssh into the device itself and run the same show command, it takes about 120 seconds to complete, thus retrieves the total and accurate data needed. How do I extend the time for data retrieval through CLI on a specific device within my Domain in NetBrain, specifically taking into consideration the Front Server settings? Thanks!
Has anyone tackled this beast? I am trying to setup routing via Velocloud Edge devices. I am not able to use API or CLI due to the account’s setup. I am getting output but before I dug too deep into working on this, I didn’t know if there was something available. https://mibs.observium.org/mib/VELOCLOUD-EDGE-MIB/ .Mib: 188.8.131.52.4.1.453184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.6 Has anyone here tried to create route maps via snmp?
Is there an option with adding a device with a pre-built configuration without having to be online for discovery? It will be used for path maps usage, but the customer didn’t want netbrain to have access to a few boxes on the network. We are talking about a few sites compared to the several thousand assets we have been able to discover. We didn’t want to have the situation where a gap in path calculations can occur.I am also thinking this could be useful for test environments to see how traffic will transverse the network. Thoughts?
Hello,can API node (blue cloud) retake or incept variable or column or column attributer from previous nodes?Not cleat what "Paramaters” are used for. No docs found.My use case is to process group of devices with REST API calls but I need to distinguish last device in que is being processed so final API call at the end with consolidated values can be triggered. Thanks
How to create sitemap using deviceid, mapSettingHelper.build_site_map_setting("device_id", false) as there may be possibilities of duplicate hostname.If I refer “Defining Event Templates to Process Events in NetBrain” in help it is giving# create mapmap_setting = mapSettingHelper.build_site_map_setting("device_name", False) #replace with a real device or device parameter in raw dataIn this case what are the device parameters we can use other than hostname
I have been dabbling with the Qapp Python scripting lately and i want to build a qapp wherein the user can have multiple end device ips as input and have their L2 connected switch and L3 Gateways automatically drawn on the map using one-ip-table information. However, looks like the gateways cannot be resolved by one ip table that’s why it is not being drawn. Then i noticed when the end device is drawn, i am able to see the L3 neighbor by extending the plus sign. Is there a Qapp API or a combination of them that can see the L3 neighbor? Or is there a better way to achieve this? Thank you! import PyDataModeloutput = GetOneIpTableItem($Input1.IP,"","","")output has no entry for gw.
