Adding Automatically Discovered Devices (in Batches)

Adding Automatically Discovered Devices (in Batches)

Configuration Logic

  1. Configure Huawei switches.
    1. Configure SNMP parameters to ensure that SolarWinds can communicate with the switches.
    2. Configure Telnet parameters to ensure that SolarWinds can log in to the switches.
  2. Configure SolarWinds to automatically discover devices on the network.
  3. Add automatically discovered devices.

Procedure

  1. Configure Huawei switches.
    1. Configure SNMP parameters.

      <HUAWEI> system-view
      [HUAWEI] sysname S5720HI-1
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent sys-info version v2c   //Allow SolarWinds to communicate with the switch using SNMPv2c.
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent community write cipher Huawei@2018   //Set the SNMPv2c community name to Huawei@2018.
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent trap enable   //Enable the SNMP trap function of all modules to send traps to SolarWinds.
      Warning: All switches of SNMP trap/notification will be open. Continue? [Y/N]:y
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent target-host trap address udp-domain 192.168.26.232 params securityname cipher Huawei@2018   //Configure the switch to send traps to SolarWinds.
      NOTE:

      You can run the display snmp-agent trap [ feature-name feature-name ] all command to check the status of the SNMP trap function of a specified module or all modules. If you want to enable the switch to send traps of a specified module to SolarWinds, run the snmp-agent trap enable feature-name feature-name [ trap-name trap-name ] command to enable the SNMP trap function of this module, instead of running the snmp-agent trap enable command.

    2. Configure Telnet parameters.

      [S5720HI-1] user-interface maximum-vty 15   //Configure the maximum number of users that can remotely log in to the switch.
      [S5720HI-1] user-interface vty 0 14
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] authentication-mode aaa   //Set the user authentication mode to AAA, that is, user name and password authentication.
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] protocol inbound telnet   //Allow SolarWinds to log in to the switch using Telnet.
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] quit
      [S5720HI-1] aaa
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei password cipher Huawei@123   //Configure the user name and password.
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei privilege level 15   //Set the user level to 15 (highest).
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei service-type telnet   //Allow the user to log in to the switch using Telnet.
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] quit

  2. Configure SolarWinds to automatically discover devices on the network.
    1. Log in to SolarWinds using the administrator account.
    2. Click SETTINGS > Network Discovery. Then click Add New Discovery and then click START.
    3. On the NETWORK tab page, specify subnets or IP addresses and then click NEXT.

    4. Adjust configurations on the AGENTS and VIRTUALIZATION tab pages. For details, see the SolarWinds product documentation.
    5. Add switches to SolarWinds NCM. If you want to use SolarWinds NCM to manage the devices (for example, backing up or restoring configurations), configure SSH/Telnet credentials on the CONFIG MANAGEMENT tab page. Click Add SSH/Telnet Credentials to add a new credential profile, or select an existing credential profile. Ensure that the credentials are the same as the SSH/Telnet parameter settings on Huawei switches. Otherwise, SolarWinds NCM cannot manage the switches. The following example adds a new credential profile. After it is added, click ADD and then click NEXT.

    6. On the SNMP tab page, add SNMP credentials and ensure that these credentials are the same as the SNMP parameter settings on the switches. Otherwise, SolarWinds cannot use SNMP to communicate with the switches. After the configuration is complete, click NEXT.

    7. Adjust configurations on the WINDOWS, MONITORING SETTINGS, and DISCOVERY SETTINGS tab pages if needed. For details, see the SolarWinds product documentation.
    8. On the DISCOVERY SCHEDULING tab page, set the intervals for automatically discovering nodes and subnets. Click DISCOVER. SolarWinds starts automatically discovering devices on the network.
  3. Add automatically discovered devices.
    1. Click NEXT.

    2. On the INTERFACES tab page, select interfaces to be monitored and then click NEXT.

    3. Adjust configurations on the VOLUMES tab page if needed. For details, see the SolarWinds product documentation.
    4. Select devices to be added, click IMPORT, and then click FINISH.

    5. Click SETTINGS > Manage Nodes. On the page that is displayed, the value of Status is displayed Node status is Up, indicating that the automatically discovered devices have been added successfully.
