Network Discovery across VLANs

Recommended Posts

Hi Darrell,

We scan all the local (and public if configured) networks that are assigned to your NICs. We take each IP address and subnet mask to calculate which networks we need to scan. If you provide access to other networks via static routes these networks will not be included in your network discovery.

As a NFR I think it would be better to permit identifying the ip ranges that are static routes that you wish to scan. Permit entering something like: 192.168.1.1-254, 192.168.10.1-254, 192.168.20.1-254 and then off the discovery goes across your defined VLANs.

Hi Darrell,

Thank you for your suggestion, we will consider the possibility to introduce this option into the future, but meanwhile, in order to scan other subnets, you will need to change the subnet mask on the system which is marked as a probe.

I'd also like to add that you either change the subnet of a NIC as @Chris pointed out to include the other networks or you can simply add additional IP addresses in the other networks on the same NIC just for the duration of the agent deployment procedure.

We will consider adding support for manually inputting which networks to scan.

Hi Paul,

I would like to second the suggestion for being able to manually request an IP range to be scanned.

I have quite a few clients where i would like to be able to do a probe from their domain controller that is hosted off site and on a tottally different network than the on site router (f.x. router network is 192.168.1.x and DC is on 10.100.100.1)

I have tried adding a 192.168.1.x IP to the NIC before running the probe but it doesn't work.

P.S. The on premise network is completely accessible from the DC.

      Hi, does anyone managed to create a Workflow for "Point of Contacts" to approve ticket requests? Got a customer asking to approve tickets before they are worked on, so i need to be able to automate the process.
       
      To be more clear: i need to send a request of approval by sending the POC an email when a ticket is created - change the status to "pending approval" and await for a reply, once the reply is made by the approver (stating in the subject that is %approved% in the subject for example) - change the status of the ticket to "approved" and notify the assigned resource..
       
      I managed to get to the send an email and request for approval part using a workflow, but can't seem to figure out how to handle the reply..
       
      Thanks!

      Not sure where to file this. I thought there was a PSA area, but I don't see it tonight.

      In PSA ticket details I see a section called "Duplicate Alarm"
      I can't find any reference for this in help or user guide. What is this and how does it work?

      I have installed Pulseway on my unraid server and it has ben working great. I can monitor everything and shutdown/restart the machine. However,  wake on lan is not working at all. I have enabled it in the BIOS and in the OS. I can wake the machine using my router, but not with the Pulseway app. In the config.xml file I have WoWAN set to true and the port to 9 (also tried 50000) and it still doesn't work. Is there something I am missing?
      P.S. I also have a Windows machine that has WOW working perfectly.
      Thank you for your help.

      Hello and TYIA~
      I am trying to put together a work flow that will hold a ticket for 7-days once we believe it is complete.  Once assigned to a particular status, I would like the ticket to stay open for 7-days, then if there are no further updates, close itself.
      Does anyone have anything like this they wouldn't mind sharing?

      I have a Linux Server that reports as up-to-date version 5.4.
      Is this correct? Because I can't move it in Pulseway 6.0 to another Organization or Site. I get an error message that the agent requires an update.
