Default NetBrain OE 4.1 New Feature: Management Interface Selection Order

To control what type of interfaces should be first selected as management interfaces for polling, enter the interface type below. NetBrain will automatically reset the management IP for every device in the workspace following the order defined here.

On existing installs? So when I upgrade and fill in this field the next discovery or tune up the interface order will change to my new defined order?

Yes, it's already available in OEV4.1. After you have filled in this field, you need to click the Apply button and NetBrain will reset the management IP addresses instantly. So you don't need to rediscover or tune up to make it effective.

Eddy, I had the interface selection order set and post discovery (total wipe of all old data) I noticed several routers were set as interfaces not following the selection order. After hitting apply on the selection order and looking again the devices have loopbacks as the mgmt interface. Any ideas why a discovery did not automatically add the device with lo0 as the mgmt int? Do I need to hit apply on a regular basis to make sure newly discovered devices are modeled correctly?

In OEV4.1, the selection order will not affect the live discovery process. That is to say, if new devices are added to the Workspace, you still need to click the Apply button to adjust MGMT IP address order for them. We already have a plan of integrating the MGMT IP selection order into the live discovery process. And we are evaluating the plan. I will let you know when this feature is available.
