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.

Looking for some advice here....

About a month ago we sent out a notice to our customers that we would be moving our SAaS service from our hosted data center to the AWS cloud.  The weekend to do teh migration is now here and we have run into an issue migrating data that will give us reason to believe there is a chance that the site may not be ready Monday morning when we are supposed to be ready.  The management team here is saying that there is no way we can send out a notice delaying this migration.  I am requesting we give the customers notice that the migration will be postponed.  How bad does postponing the migration look?  How does it compare to having real problems on Monday if it does not go as planned?

Hello EE,

Our VPN firewall prevents ipV6 (blocks) so our Visual Studio debugger is failing to connect.
I wonder if anyone knows of a way in Visual Studio to turn off ipV6 and only use IPv4.

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.

If I configure sonic wall tz300 to get WAN ip from Comcast GW DHCP, will I still be able to configure the VPN for remote access?   I am mulling several different topologies, and if this could work this seems like the easiest way.

I am setting up a small business network.  DNS and AD is being managed on Win Server 2016.  Should I have Windows Server manage DHCP as well?  I was thinking about having a sonic wall fw manage DHCP, VPN.  

If I want remote users to connect to the vpn authenticating with domain credentials, does this sound right? Any suggestions on Network Topology?

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.

Everyone has always said HUBs are bad and send information to ALL devices

I have an employee that needs another PC setup next to them ASAP and I do not have time to run another 100' CAT6 cable from the switch to this PC, therefore I just setup a small $10 cheap hub as follows

 1. patch cord from SWITCH to HUB
 2. patch cord from HUB to PC #1
 3. patch cord from HUB to PC #2

Which one of the below options will happens since a HUB is now in the mix when PC #2 updates a file on the Windows 2012 R2 file server since I did not wire back to the Cisco switch ?

    ** Option #1 = PC #2 sends info to ALL 100+ devices on my network, with only the file server accepting the data

    ** Option #2 = PC #2 sends info to ALL devices that are plugged into the hub (i.e. only PC #1 and the switch), with only the file server accepting the data

   ** Option #3 = something else ?

I have a Sonicwall NSA 3600. I have a block of Public IP's.  I have a Server 2012 vm with two IIS sites and two seperate LAN IP's configured in bindings.  One of the IIS sites has been configurd in the NSA via the wizard. The Address Object is called "web1."  

When trying to run the web server wizard for the second IIS site, i get error "Server name conflicts with existing address object" when entering the same name of "web1" which is the servers DNS name.  I change the name to "web2" and assign my LAN IP and my seperate WAN IP and it completes the wizard and creates rules.  

However, my site is not available at all. Not even by WAN.  I ensure i configure private and public DNS but it wont resolve.

Has anyone seen this issue when running to web sites from one server trying to create the firewall rules in an Sonicwall.

I need to add a route to our ProCurve switch which will allow all traffic from my network destine for a network in our parent company.

All traffic from 192.168.0.0/21 going to 172.20.0.0/16 needs to go thru (edge router)192.168.0.150

My parent company sent me the edge router and setup a VPN tunnel using this device, which has the 192.168.0.150 interface. The VPN is working as If I add the command  "route ADD 172.20.0.0 MASK 255.255.0.0 192.168.0.150" to my computer I am able to reach the server at our parent company.

Not sure how to add the route to the ProCurve
 

Below is the config for my ProCurve

hostname "ProCurve 2910al-24G Switch"
time timezone -300

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 ?

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!

A company I am supporting has a SonicWALL TZ600 firewall.

We need to audit and determine how much internet bandwidth each user is using and what type of bandwidth is being used (for streaming video, streaming audio, file downloads, etc.)

How can this be setup within the SonicWALL TZ600 firewall?

Hi Guys,

I had to switch our two WAN Interfaces on SonicWALL, (Thus X1 & X2)

1.  I switched the public IP configuration under Interface Settings
2.  and changed all the NAT policies, switching X1 & X2 for all rules


My questions,

a.  Is there any other rule(s) that need to be changed to switch primary internet access for LAN users between X1 & X2?

b.  I've noticed that some NAT rules refer to an "address object" rather than the interface (X1/X2) directly.  
These I did not change as the object's public address was still correct.  Is there a difference in referring to the interface (X1/X2) directly, or using an object instead?  
In my case, where I had to switch X1 & X2 ... the rules with objects made things a bit easier as it stayed the same.  Is this the only difference using an object or referencing to the interface directly?

Hi all,

Thanks!

ISP making a demark  drop inside my new server room.   I don't want to find out last minute there's no signal or lower bandwidth than ordered.
Is there a reasonably inexpensive device that can show the signal and can test speed?  Or any other ways?
 This is for LC Fibre 1Gb multimode.  Thanks.

I have an older Cisco 7301 router from 2005; that I want to use in the new office as a temp solution.

It has 3 SPF GBIC ports.  Can I use any SPF transceivers or only Cisco specific.  I have few from Juniper 10GBASE 70C.  
Would that work?

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.
