Can we comply to the following statement with CA Spectrum "The tool shall be able to discover IPv4 only, IPv6 only as well as devices in dual-stack. In case of dual stack devices, the system shall be able to discover and show both IPv4 and IPv6 IP address

    Hi Valarmathi,

     

    While Spectrum can discover and display the addresses for IPv4 only or IPv6 only devices, I don't believe there is an out of the box way to display BOTH IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for a dual stack device. However, you can customise the system to Display the IPv4 address in a newly created attribute while leaving the network address as IPv6.

     

    So you would create a new attribute with the data type “internet address” and display the IPv4 address. Be advised though, If you have a huge number of devices with the same model type, then this newly created attribute gets created for all the devices and might impact the database.

     

    So a possible solution is to create a new attribute to display the IPv4 address while the Network_Address (0x12d7f) attribute is used to display the IPv6 address.

    You can use the IP redundancy UI to display the full list of addresses, or you can look at the Interfaces tab, or you can look at the USMPrimaryIPv6Address (0x5b60003) and USMOtherIPAddresses (0x5b60004) attributes.
