I am wondering if there is a way to access applications like qapp center without using the menu drop down? I understand there is the “pin the application” to the desktop option but is there another way? I am thinking of a url like what we might see with inventoryreport. It can be loaded to a new tab but something like Qapp Center seems to only be in the drop down application section or pin. When we were using v8 we didn’t have this problem because the application search was in a different section. We are using Netbrain V10.1.5. Any ideas?
Does anyone have a runbook they can share made specifically for network health checks? I know how to put together a runbook with CLI commands to show CPU utilization or check for interface errors but was wondering if anyone got creative and made some Qapps or other elements in a runbook to accomplish this that I am not thinking of.On a side note, is there any place that NB users can submit their own custom made stuff?
Hello! Is there a way to run configuration change CLI commands (for example “conf t” → “banner login ‘some banner’” → “exit” → “copy running-config startup-config”)? I saw that you can run show type CLI commands through benchmarks, but the config change ones don’t seem to work. Thank you
Hello everyone, My network has a couple of sites, which were having download/upload speed issues. We checked everything on our ISP, it wasnt them. After running the Highlight MTU Interface QAPP we realized some MTU mismatches which fixed the issues after matching them.But one site is still having the issue, I am checking the sites’ configs but is are there any automation library that checks rate limiting, or give me a good overall health for the site. So far I have tried the Overall Health View, nothing stands out, MTU matches. I’d like to have a real in-depth look to the entire network on the site.Thank you. 6
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
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’
Has anyone done NFGW Policy Audit with NetBrain automation (Rule Compliance, Access Compliance, Configuration Compliance) ?NetBrain collects the configuration, but there doesn't seem to be a build-in check relevant for businesses.Deleting unused rules also needs log information, but perhaps doable? SD-WAN, NFGW, and Cloud FW are usually under the special control and ownership of companies, i.e., there is interest, while the operator holds the WAN configuration. Even outsourced FW management, business need to audit compliance regulary. Of course, one option is to choose a separate FW Policy audit software, but if you have all config and digital twin it could be part of NB solution by default?
Hi Guys, Is there a built in Qapp/Runbook for temperature checks on devices. A few days back power went out partially in one of our mdf closets. We didnt realize the temperatures went over the threshold until one of our engineers went inside the room. We are now having discussions as to why our SNMP/DNAC tools never alerted us, and I think this would be a great idea for creating a runbook so we have constant checks on our devices.Trying to see if there is anything built in runbooks to start my work off, does anyone have an idea or has done something similar.P.S.I know creating a parser would be the best way to start, but I dont know if there is a simpler way of addressing my temperature issue.V/R 6ix
What would be the best way to verify (audit) using NetBrain that all devices in the multivendor network with power saving features are also configured and turned on? (Cisco EEE, IEEE 802.3az, HPE Aruba Green AP) - Electricity in Europe will be astronomically expensive by 2022.
Hello I’m trying to create a parser for repeated use in my company. My goal is to identify intrefaces that haven’t been used in over 6 months by using the “sh int” command and parsing the “Last input” portion of the output.GigabitEthernet1/0/19 is down, line protocol is down (notconnect) Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet, address is 1111.1111.111 (bia 1111.1111.111) Description: Example MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit/sec, DLY 10 usec, reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255 Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set Keepalive set (10 sec) Auto-duplex, Auto-speed, media type is 10/100/1000BaseTX input flow-control is on, output flow-control is unsupported ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00 Last input 6w4d, output 6w4d, output hang never In theory this should be easy but because of how Cisco shows the dates it is fairly hard to put into a string and parse it. I have this so far as to identify interfaces:$int is $int_status, line protocol isAnd this for the last input port
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?
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
Can some one help me out with the procedure to configure an email alert system that can notify a NetBrain Admin when either the MongoDB Server or Windows/Linux Server gets disconnected as displayed in the Service Monitor? Thanks!
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.
