Managed Switch/Hub Report
LANsurveyor makes it easy to identify where nodes on the map are physically connected if they are connected to a managed switch or hub. To use the managed switch/hub features in LANsurveyor, your hardware must support SNMP and you must have the correct SNMP community string (or password).
Step 1 of 4: Draw a Map
Use the map you created in Draw Your Network Map or create a new map that includes all your managed switches and hubs. Make sure you enable SNMP and enter the correct community string(s) for your switches and hubs when you create the map. Use the lock icon to hide or show the strings.
Step 2 of 4: Switch/Hub Ports Report
Start the Switch/Hub Ports Report Wizard by clicking on the icon or selecting New>Switch/Hub Ports from the Report menu. The Switch/Hub Ports Wizard is displayed.
Any nodes already selected on the map will be checked. To select all the managed Switches and Hubs, click on the check box next to "SNMP Switches/Hubs" and click Next.
Schedule the time to run the report or select "now" and click Finish.
The report is generated. Click on any column to sort by that column. Once completed, you can save the report or click on the View Report with Excel button to automatically open the report in Excel. For a description of the column data, press F1 for help in LANsurveyor.
