Does anyone know of a way to import addresses to populate the Locations attribute in Spectrum 10 so we can quickly take advantage of the GISView?
We learned the "snmp-server location" command in Cisco can populate the "Location" attribute in Spectrum however we have already discovered many devices where this info was not in the config or was inaccurate. We can copy a list of devices from Spectrum and paste them into a spreadsheet and then associate them with an address. Would there be a way to import this back into Spectrum allowing us to populate the Location attribute (0x23000d)?
Would it work to just rediscover your devices after updating their location information?
Looks like we are going to have to manually update the devices in the CLI or by updating the Device Location field in One Click. Apparently updating the Device Location field will write those changes to the device.
I suggest to use the attribute editor in Oneclick to update this attribute instead of rediscovering. Are you having any challenges with this?
All is working well. We are updating the Location field on the Information Tab of the device. This will write the SNMP Location back to the device.
Is there a way to update multiple devices at the same time? With over 9000 servers it would be great to do this by groups
Select all the devices from locator search using device search or based on global collection, select all the models in the output -> Right click -> Attribute editor -> search for location attribute -> Move this to right panel -> Provide the value.
Now to populate this on the device, we should discover the device with r/w snmp community string.
