Network Management involves issues that are independent of specific hardware or software, including email policies, upgrade planning, backup scheduling and working with managed service providers for Desktop-As-A-Service (DaaS), Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) and the like through the use of tools, coupled with manufacturer standards, best practice guidelines, policies and procedures plus all other relevant documentation. Network management also includes monitoring, alerting and reporting, management reporting, planning for device or service updates, the backup of configurations, the setting of key performance indicators and measures (KPIs/KPMs), associated service level agreements and problem records as part of the IT Service Management (ITSM) framework.

Is there a good tool to scan and list all the available hostnames on the network?
Same for the DNS.  Can I search local DNS and compile all the hostnames registered there?

Thanks in advance.

I'm running older cisco swithces, 2960, 3750, etc...
I configured ntp via:
ntp server 192.5.41.40
Type: clock timezone PST -7 0

But I was thinking, I should use hostname instead, so I tried to use time.google.com, but I keep on getting a "translating" error.

Any ideas how to fix that?

hi guys

I've installed a trial version of the network performance monitor from Solarwinds. However, it only discovered printers and switches/routers.

Can it discover PC's? Or do you need agents installed on them for it to discover those?

Thanks for helping

Hi All,

I am having problems loading OS image onto a new Nexus 9504 with 2 sup below are the steps i have tried, any advise would be much appreciated. image i am using is nxos.7.0.3.I5.2.bin

1. Reload switch and
2. Ctrl + C
3. cmdline recoverymode=1 and cmdline init_system
4. boot nxos.7.0.3.I5.2.bin (which is copied on bootflash/)
5. After this it starts configs and took some time but displayed other messages: System is coming up ... Please wait ...
6.After this, it returns to bash shell: bash-4.2# and nothing happens
7. Both switches, I have reloaded twice and retied again; but still same.

when i exit it takes me into (standby) login: but requires username and password which i have tried all the defaults and will not let me in.

Thanks

Does anyone have any good proposal templates you could share?  Any other managed IT service templates welcome as well.

Thanks

I'm at a client which has an Internet feed from their Israel office which egresses in NYC. Nobody seems to know why it was put in that way. Might any experts on here with middle east experience know why you might want to egress on the other side of the Atlantic rather than just using a local ISP? Or at least Europe? Security issue? Tax issue? Something else??

Hi Wizards, I am just wondering about this issue? Can we specify the cost of commands in terms of consuming resource (CPU, RAM) in Cisco devices, such as Routers, Switches?

Many thanks in advance!

In the search tool - you can select source or destination address that EQUALS, NOT EQUALS, IS EITHER, IS NEITHER. But what I haven't figured out is how to search by subnet. e.g. show me all the traffic with Destination in the 10.12.67.0/24 subnet. Is that possible?

I have a single workstation on the domain that everyday brings the network to a halt by utilizing the entire bandwidth for the office.  The report from solarwinds shows:  Se0/0/0       216.58.193.174  Gi0/1         -internal ip-     06 01BB C453  7771K.  Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue?  I did not find any malware on the workstation, and during most of the traffic burst time the user is not at the keyboard.

I have custom the CFS URL filtering on my new Sonicwall TZ300. It works fine from LAN to WAN.

Try to customize the same setting from my WLAN to WAN but it doesn't block those prohibted URLs as expected. Any idea ? Is there a place in Sonicwall to check where it is passed or blocked ?

Thx

I'm sure this probably isn't possibly, but is there a way to map 2 different network drives to the same drive letter?
The only way I can see doing it is to change the drive letter for one of network drives. Suggestions?

What is the process to logon to or reset the logon username and password for a SonicWALL TZ600 router when the logon information isn't known?

We don't want to reset any information on the router we simply want to logon to it or reset the username and password.

We have physical access to this router.

How can this be done?

can I ask a few basic questions in relation to Symantec backup exec.

1) what is the underlying database which stores all the configs, e.g. sql server or something else?

2) where is the management console can you see which accounts are authenticated for access? is access based on windows logins or accounts specific to backup exec?

3) in terms of the management console configuration, what needs to be backed up?

4) and is there an easy way to export all the current settings, e.g. jobs/schedules, backup selections per server (e.g. which drives) alert configurations and recipients, out to a single file for offline analysis?

5) is it application aware, e.g. by default does the standard package have the ability to backup exchange, SQL, AD, sharepoint etc.

what is the correct terminology used to get an a top level view and oversight of network infrastructure in use in your private networks, e.g. firewalls, proxies, routers, switches, wireless controllers etc. I would like to request a copy for asset management and CMDB purposes to see what interacts/depends on what, but need some idea on the correct terminology for such a diagram/document.

Dear, I got this error from today morning. All the servers in this network range could not be accessed like attached screenshot.

When I tried to access these servers from the same ISP (which provide this network range to us), the servers COULD be accessed; but when I tried from other 2 ISPs, they COULD NOT be accessed.

The servers are Window Server 2012R2 Standard, have Kaspersky, Firewall but they are configured properly, nothing change (this error started from today morning)

Can you please suggest?

we are doing some risk assessment work on backup processes from a risk management perspective (we have no responsibility for doing them ourselves), aside from servers, which host the critical data/files, what other devices in a network need considering in backup policies, so we can interview the department responsible to see that they are included/tested.

Threat Trends for MSPs to Watch
Threat Trends for MSPs to Watch

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

what documentation would you expect to see an IT department have in place specific to their backup/restore processes? I am trying to get a better idea of the process from a risk and compliance angle, but need to identify either some useful probing questions for the team who do backups, or request some documentation that you would expect to be in place.

This is using APC Smarts-up 6000 with a network management card AP9631. A shutdown agent software called PCNS - Powerchute Network Shutdown v4.2. One of the server that connected directly to this UPS is, a Citrix XenServer 6.0. This XenServer (as a host) has 5 servers, 4 being MS Windows 2008 R2 server, and 1 CentOS 6.6 server.

I heard that we may have to have a dedicated physical Windows server, installed with Citrix XenCenter mgmt, so as you have to use the xe.exe, plus a USB cable connected from this server to UPS? Does all the above VMs need to install with PCNS? Please show step-by-step how the whole thing can be setup in order to be shutting down upon power failure.


Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Let's say I'm an ISP and I lease a 10G transport pipe to an IX (Frankfurt or Amsterdam), with the purpose of buying transit from 2 different tier 1 providers (2 resellers, probably) and peering with content providers.

What happens inside the IX?

Do I get one switch port and I have to rent rack space for my own equipment there? The peerings are physical, with cables between my switches and the peer switches?

Or I only get a VLAN and the peerings are inside the IX main router/switch? And I route the traffic from my VLAN to my peer's VLAN?

Or?

I've googled for the past days, but I'm still confused. Anyone has real world experience with this?

Thank you.
