switch model: Aruba 2920 48G POE+

Adding to a stack which already has 3 switches. Is it just a matter of reordering the stacking cables or is additional config required?

Looks like the re-seller sold us network gear (routers, firewalls, switches, controllers) without any manufacture or 3rd party support.  Probably cost effective that way.  Now they getting me a support quote.  Tricky?

Questions.  Can they do it normally?  And does it mean I wont have any support even day 1 after installation?

This is in US and licensed large certified reseller.  Network gear, Cisco/PAN.

Because SNMP uses two different port numbers (UDP ports 161 and 162), a single system can easily run both a manager and an agent.  What would happen if the same port number were used for both?

Wanted to see if anyone had any knowledge regarding providing 4G LTE as a backup line for an enterprise office.
I was investigating some Cisco / Meraki options, including :

- Cisco 890 series ISR
- Meraki router + Inseego (formerly Feenet Wireless) Skyus DS

Would anyone have any info or experience with one of these as a solution for a temp situation or as a backup solution.
Appreciate in advance.

EE,

Curious if it's possible for certain network devices say Juniper, brocade or Palo Alto firewall OIDs that display Anyconnect VPN active sessions, high availability status, SIP Trunks or Chassis Cluster Failover? I'm trying to monitor these in SCOM (Operations Manager) and I need to import these for monitoring.

Thanks in advance

Hello guys,

I´m trying to setup SSTP server on a mikrotik router for multiple multiple.

Is it somehow possible to determinate which SSTP server profile should be used based on Domain?

Example:
I have two domains exmple1.com and example2.com
when some user connects to SSTP server from domain exmaple1 use this SSTP profile when user connects from example2 use another profile.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much!

Regards

Hi Guys,

I have to consolidate two floors onto one floor tomorrow, however they are separate domains. But i am going to have to use the same internet connection for two.

Can tqo domains exist on the same physical networks providing i use different subnets ?

Hello,

We just moved to a new print server and for the most part everything is working okay.  However, the printers are showing off-line in one of the departments, except one printer that they all print to.

1.  I have ran a gp update /force as an individual and as an admin
2.  The pharmacy users are should be in the right OU
3.  We did turn SNMP off for a moment to see if the printers would appear online, but it did not help
4.  None of the users have admin rights, but that should not make a difference when pulling from a print srver
5.  Could the system be pointing to the old print server somewhere in GPO or wrong on the new server?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

We are testing Cisco AnyConnect on one of our Cisco ASA 5545s.  I need to know how to add one of our networks so that VPN users can access their servers on that network while connected at home.  Can someone walk me through how to do this and how to find the existing networks that are reachable?  I can do it through ASDM or command prompt.  Thanks!

Okay... Here's the situation. I have sort of inherited a system. I have a 'working' location and a new location we are creating. Horizon View 7. We use dedicated pools with static machines assigned to users. There is a mix of both Win7 and Linux (CentOS and Ubuntu and something else I can't remember). All the VM's have to autologin to a desktop with a local user. This is a requirement that can't be changed. According to users in the other location, they are able to connect to their running VM's with no issues and it connects to the running session. In testing the new environment, this doesn't work. We get the resource busy or unavailable error. On my Win7 VM that I am testing with, I have installed the console plugin. This allows me to connect directly to the VM with a user already logged in, but I'm prompted for the local user account. Connecting to the Horizon server, does not work. The VM's we started working with at the beginning of this were VM's from the other location. Now we are building from scratch.

We've had our networking guys investigate it was well and according to them, this is all connected at the switch level and nothing is being blocked. I would not rule out networking though.

Any ideas what the issue is or if what we need to do is even possible? I've been told to make this work even though it does seem like it would be easier to just allow console access.

Hi all,

Is there any specific minimum cable length for a connection between a patch panel and a switch? The cable would be CAT6 and I wish to use is 1ft.

Thanks!

Hello, we have a staff of 20, and we want to track websites and bandwidth used by workstation/user. What's the best tool to do this?

Free Tool: SSL Checker
LVL 11
Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We are running Windows Server Essential 2016 and are having a weird issue. When we try to run an application on the server from a shared folder (on the server) windows hangs for around 3-5 minutes. During this you cannot do anything on the server, even not accessing task manager.

When running an application from a folder shared from one our workstation there are no issues at all and the workstations has no problem running applications from a folder share from the server. Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

We have apps that send alerts out via SNMP (think it's v2 SNMP): is there any way these
events are sent to an SMTP server (we use Exchange) or to SolarWind (our monitoring tool)?
If sent to SolarWind, we want to be alerted via email or SMS.

Our apps read the events from a custom Oracle DB (from a SWIFT application).

We have Splunk SIEM being deployed but not ready yet so wanted to use the other 2 options 1st.

Dear Wizards, is there any free solution for logging management? I found Greylog on the Internet but not sure about its quality. Can you recommend some? Can Zabbiz be used for logging? Many thanks!

I am writing a netflow collector in .net, which has lots of interesting challenges including reading the RFC!

However, I need a specific piece of information  

Here is a link to a copy of the RFC:

https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3954.txt


From this I read this excerpt:
The life of a template at the Collector is limited to a fixed refresh
   timeout.  Templates not refreshed from the Exporter within the
   timeout are expired at the Collector.  The Collector MUST NOT attempt
   to decode the Flow or Options Data Records with an expired Template.

I cannot find any default expiry timeframe for a netflow Flowset Template.  

It says it must be configurable at the exporter and the collector.  When I set up a PRTG to collect netflow packets, there was not an option to specify the template expiry.  I can't see any record in the RFC that the exported can use to tell the collector when to expire templates.  PRTG works though.  

Therefore there must be a reasonable default value for how long to keep an un-refreshed template before expiring it.  

My question is, what is the default timeframe to expire a template - OR - how else can the collector learn this from the exporter? (someone manually configuring it is not the answer I want)

There must be some way in which netflow collectors work out of the box without the user specifying the template expiry.  I need to do this.

I am working on a project to move servers from on-premise VMware 6 to Microsoft Azure. I am using native Azure Site Recovery tool to replicate servers to our Azure tenant. Replication shows as successful. When I am trying to do test failover for Server 2008 R2 everything shows as successful but I have zero usage on CPU and Network and cannot connect to my servers. When I checked Boot diagnostics it was showing a black screen with white cursor. Test failover for Server 2016 was successful so the issue is only with 2008 R2.

Did anyone face the same issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

I have 7 Intellinet 24 POE Switches, installed in the past 3 months.  2 have never reset.  They are in a building on a separate subnet.
I also have two smaller 8 port Netgear POE switches, they have never reset.

There are 5 units that have at least once reset.  Details below

There are two VLANs, 1 (default) and 2 (VOIP), when everything is working it all works very well, data and VOIP traffic is good

Since their installation I have had three incidents where 1, 2, or 4 of the 9 switches were suddenly and with out explanation reset to Factory Defaults.  (I can duplicate this condition be pressing the reset button as you know)

Incident 1 - several weeks after initial installation and roll out of phones, I came in to find that 4 of the 9 switches were factory reset.

I blamed this on my having not changed the default password on the device.  I restored programming, changed the passwords and also put the switches on a private subnet.

Incident 2 - Several weeks later, two of the switches were found in Factory Reset.   Both switches are in areas of our buildings that are accessible to staff (not locked up), I spoke with management and got permission to put a camera in one of the utility closets.  I have not put the camera in, but the belief shared by everyone is that I have.

Incident 3 - 2 weeks later 1 switch (one of the two in Incident 2 , but not the one with the phantom camera.
I reprogrammed the switch, and restored VOIP service.

Some other facts: Two …
