The current relase: nedi-1.5 (Community Edition with patch3)

Note that NeDi 1.5 won’t work with PHP7 as it still relies on PHP-mysql!

1.Download nedi-1.5C

2.Stop services

3.Update with System-Files -> “Update NeDi (Backup Configuration)”:
upload

3.Review changes in displayed Readme.txt (can be accessed later via System-Files in the log directory

4.Use System-NeDi to update the DB:
updatedb

You should see this afterwards:

Adding tables
Modifying tables
DB update from 1.4.300 completed

5.Logout and click reload to see the new default theme

6.Compare new nedi.conf with yours and add new options

7.Start services

8.Have fun with 1.5!

NeDiO14

Instead of installing NeDi on an existing system, you can download NeDiO an OpenBSD based appliance providing everything you need (as in Instant Network Management). The current version features a Radius server with pre configured DB backend as well as a fully functional and extendable PXE environment, which lets clients boot memtest for example:

tftpbootpxe

cdrom Thanks to SWITCH for mirroring:

NeDiO14 (130M, ISO)
ESXi VM (67M, 7zip)
IOS-XE Package (125M, OVA)

NeDiVA

Suse based NeDi Virtual Appliance created by Tristan Rhodes.

Older Verions

nedi-1.4
Thanks to Oliviero Chiodo for building those packages: deb rpm

The patch addresses some minor bugs and provides the new API (documented here)
nedi-1.4p6 (contains msg.txt, which replaces your existing one!)

nedi-1.0.9

Layer Map

If you don’t like those round maps, you might be interested in another approach. Thanks to a faithful NeDi user (raider82 in the forum), you can draw maps based on core, distribution and access layers. It’s in an early development state, but it looks quite good already!

layermap

Updated:
-block field
-catch error that device was not found
-updated english help and added german help

Install this archive with System-Files -> “Update NeDi (Replace Configuration)”. Then add this line in the menu section of nedi.conf:
module Topology LayerMap  mark net

There’s a context help, but you may also want to look at the php code to change some defaults…

In addition raider82 also provided a nice sql script to remove undiscovered devices and related information after 14 days. It can be added to cron like this:
0 2 * * * mysql nedi --batch --user=(db -user) --password=(password) < (path to script)/remove_old_dev.sql

Thanks for making NeDi Possible
