Narrowing discover networks in SunNet Manager?

Narrowing discover networks in SunNet Manager?

Post by Cameron Mandrak » Fri, 16 May 1997 04:00:00



Can anyone tell me how to just search all of our internal networks with
SunNet Manager, instead of probing half the net when specifying more than
one hop in the discover tool?  Can I tell it to just search our internal
network?

Example... I told the discover tool to use 2 hops and find stuff in
206.165.5.0 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0.  It started searching stuff
that is not even part of our network.  If I could restrict the search to
206.165.0.0 networks, it would be a whole lot faster.

Cameron,

I think you might to try the command line interface and do the following:

console> snm_discover -r 206.165.1.1:206.165.255.254 -n 206.165.0.0 -v
.
.
A bunch of stuff here.....
.
.
console>

The -r option specifies the range of addresses that are ping'd. The -n
option is the network you are trying to discover, and the -v is for verbose
so that you can see what's going on. There a whole lot of other options.
Either check the manual, or the man pages for snm_discover.
