nedi-1.6 (requires PHP-mysqli now and won’t work on NeDiO14)
- Don’t use Chrome to download as it uncompresses gzip automatically (which breaks updating via System-Files)
- For Safari goto Preferences – General and uncheck “Open Safe Files After Downloading” to avoid uncompressing
nebuntu.sh (execute as root on any Ubuntu 17.10 machine to automagically install and configure NeDi 1.6 for you, merry X-mas 😉
3.Update with System-Files -> “Update NeDi (Backup Configuration)”:
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:
You should see this afterwards:
DB update from 1.5.225 completed
5.Logout and click reload to see the new default theme
6.Compare new nedi.conf with yours and add new options
8.Have fun with 1.6!
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:
Thanks to SWITCH for mirroring:
nedi-1.5 won’t work with PHP7 as it still relies on PHP-mysql
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!
-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
