Hi all,

 

following up on Technical Tip:  How to pick up MAC address changes in Spectrum. it seems like Spectrum functionality could benefit some upgrading.

 

Suggestion: enable Spectrum to update the MAC addresses (all of them!) stored for any device. This shall be (1) part of "reconfigure model" action, (2) get another distinct action button and (3) have the action code being published.

 

Happy voting.

 

regards,
Raphael

Hi Sarbdeep_Singh

 

Thanks for the update on this idea. We are aware that the new action code is included in 10.02.03.PTF_10.2.343 and in Spectrum 10.3. However, this idea has actually three parts. What about the button the OneClick, when will the button be available in Spectrum? Is there an estimated time when we can expect that?

 

Thanks and best regards

Feature is available with patch on top of 10.2.3 and also ported in 10.3 release.

Hi all,

 

we just received a PTF (10.02.03.PTF_10.2.343) from CA to implement action-Code 0x10170 in SPEC 10.2.3.

    REQUIREMENTS

        SPECTRUM 10.02.00, 10.02.03 and BMP_10.2.301 are the prerequisites for installation of this patch.

        This patch needs to be installed on the SpectroSERVER.

   

     OVERVIEW
 
       This is a program temporary fix for the following issue:

        Symptom: Device's Mac Address is not populated in Spectrum due to Database corruption.
        Resolution: Provided an action to evaluate and Populate the MacAddress in Spectrum.
        (DE366862, 01072934)

 

Now MAC-Address-Update can be performed via vnmsh:

 

spec01> cd /usr/CA/spectrum/vnmsh

spec01> ./connect

spec01> ./show models | grep SwCiscoIOS 0x1000089 Sim5126 0x2100b2 SwCiscoIOS

spec01> ./update action=0x10170 mh=0x1000089

Hi Raphael,


It looks like this is now possible as of Spectrum 10.2.3 as per this techdoc via a CLI action.

Hello CA, Nagesh_Jaiswal,

 

as the poster of this idea I'd like to ask for some comment on this idea as it is aged 13 months. Please also have a look at the original discussion thread.

 

thanks,
