Script to verify Vlan on HPUX

I need a script to verify the vlan thru linkloop of the interfaces of each servers in the vlan.
We are recabling 100 servers and this will be our check to verify that all the cables and vlans are correct after the recabling.

I need that script is smart enough to verify the central server so that there will be a central server identified to linkloop the mac address of all the servers in that same vlan.

Good morning,

I do not have a script but you could use something very simple with a couple of commands.

Use lanscan to get the hardware address of the distant station (link address) ie:
0/5/1/0/4/0 0x001A4BF56734 2 UP lan2 snap2 1 ETHER Yes 119

then from your local station:
linkloop -i 0x001A4BF56734

This will test the actual physical connectivity between stations and then ping your subnet gateway and then outside the gateway.

1. How will I know and verify that the server1 is not connected anymore from the original Vlan
2. I know the commands already but I need a script also to make my tasks faster in checking 100 servers vlans instead of typing one by one.
3. Two servers can linkloop each other but we cannot see their MACs into the switches. How will I know if they are in different vlans, or if htey are using hubs in between or they are just connected with crossover cables?
