When you first open the window, the Device tab opens.

The Configure Device window contains the following tabs:

Additionally, Buttons at the bottom of the window allow you to perform different actions.

Device

The Device tab displays basic information about the device.

System Name
The system name of the device. This is displayed in the Network > Devices tab tree when Device Tree Name Format is set to System Name in the Local Settings window.
Contact
Allows you to specify contact information for the person maintaining the device. Additionally, enter a backslash "/" between contacts to create a device group in a tiered tree structure. For example, to move the device into a device group called "John's Devices" within a device group called "Quality Assurance Testing", enter Quality Assurance Testing/John's Devices in this field.
Location
The physical location of the device. Additionally, enter a backslash "/" between locations to create a device group in a tiered tree structure. For example, to move the device into a device group called "London" within a device group called "Europe", enter Europe/London in this field.
Administration Profile
Use the drop-down list to select the access profile that gives the Discover tool administrative access to the devices you wish to discover. To create or edit a profile, use the Profiles tab.

Replacement Serial Number
Enter the number of the device replacing this device if Remove from Service is selected. When entered, ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine restores the most recent archive of the device removed from service.
Remove from Service
Select this check box if the device is being removed from the network. ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine will continue to monitor the device when Remove from Service is selected. When a replacement device is ready, continue the RMA process by adding the replacement device's serial number, shutting down the device to be removed, and starting the replacement device.
 NOTE:

A complete list of devices for which Remove from Service is selected is available via the Removed from Service Devices report on the Reports tab.

Use Default WebView URL
Select the check box to use the default WebView URL to access the device. The default WebView URL is provided by ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine based on the vendor profile configured for the device.
WebView URL
Enter the WebView URL you want to use to access the device, if you do not want to use the default WebView URL.

 NOTES:

The option for editing the device Web View URL is available only after the device is onboarded to ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine.

When modifying a device for the first time, the WebView URL is the default http://%IP. The %IP macro is replaced with the device's actual IP when Launch WebView is attempted.

If the %IP macro is present in the default WebView URL, it will be replaced with the device's actual IP Address when WebView is attempted.

For bulk edits on multiple devices, a valid WebView URL with the %IP macro is mandatory, so that %IP macro can be replaced with the actual IP Address of the device on which the WebView was attempted.

REST calls to the device will use the protocol (HTTP/HTTPS) and port configured in the WebView URL.

For ExtremeXOS/Switch Engine devices, the default WebView URL ( http://%IP%) instructs ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine to use HTTP to communicate with the device. You must override the default WebView URL to communicate with the device via HTTPS, and optionally include a non-standard port (for example, https://%IP%:8443 - where 8443 is the non-standard port number in use).

Default Site
Use the drop-down list to select the map to which the device is associated. For additional information, see the Maps Overview topic.
Poll Group
Use the drop-down list to select a Poll Group for the discovered devices. ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine provides three distinct poll groups (configured in the Status Polling view of the Options tab) that each specify a unique poll frequency. When you save newly discovered devices to the database, they are polled with the poll group specified here. If you save discovered devices that already exist in the database, the poll group specified here overwrites the poll group currently being used in the database.
 NOTE: Poll Group is not used if you set the Poll Type to Not Polled. To use Poll Group, select a Poll Type other than Not Polled.
Poll Type
Use the drop-down list to select the Poll Type for devices:
  • Select Not Polled if you do not want to poll the devices.
  • Select Ping for the Poll Type if the Profile for the IP Range is also set to Ping.
     NOTE:On a Windows platform, device operational status cannot be determined for devices with their Poll Type set to Ping unless you are logged on and running ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine as a user with Administrative privileges.
  • Select SNMP to poll the device using SNMP. The SNMP version (SNMPv1 or SNMPv3) is determined by the Profile specified for the IP Range.
  • Select Maintenance if you do not want to poll the devices temporarily. Using this Poll Type allows you to search for devices set to Maintenance to change them back to their regular Poll Type after maintenance on the device is complete.
  • Select ZTP+ for devices managed by ZTP+ and created through the ZTP+ process. When the Poll Type is ZTP+, ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine does not initiate a poll, instead ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine receives a message from the device or Fabric Manager messages to determine the status.

    For example, if ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine does not receive a message from a device or Fabric Manager for three times the amount of time defined in the Poll Interval for the Poll Group of the device, then the Status is Contact Lost. When ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine receives a message from the device, the Device Status is Contact Established.
  • Status Only indicates a device for which you only need to monitor its status. This Poll Type is only displayed if the device was configured as Status Only when first added to ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine.

    The default polling interval for Status Only devices occurs every 12 hours and is configured in the Status Only Poll Interval field on the Administration > Options > Status Polling tab. Status Only devices do not support check box of statistics, FlexViews, Network Status Monitor, or enforcement via ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine. You can add a maximum of 10,000 Status Only devices in ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine, which do not count against your licensed device limit.

     NOTE:You cannot change the Poll Type of an existing device to Status Only. To change the Poll Type of a device that currently exists in ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine to Status Only, delete the device, add the device in ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine via the Add Devices window, and select the Poll Status Only check box.

The options available in the Poll Type drop-down list vary depending on the method used to add the device:

  • If device is added via ZTP+, Not Polled, Ping, SNMP, Maintenance, and ZTP+ are available as Poll Type options. After changing the Poll Type to an option other than ZTP+, ZTP+ is no longer be available. To select ZTP+, delete the device and add it via the ZTP+ process.
  • If device is added using SNMP, Not Polled, Ping, SNMP, and Maintenance are available as Poll Type options.
  • If device is added using Ping, Not Polled, Ping, SNMP, and Maintenance are available as Poll Type options.
  • If device is added as Status Only (Ping or SNMP), then Poll Group and Poll Type options are not available.
SNMP Timeout
The amount of time that ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine waits before re-trying to contact the device. The value for this setting must be between 1 and 60 seconds.

The value entered in this field overrides the default entered in the SNMP Advanced view in the Administration > Options tab.

 NOTE:When SNMP requests are redirected through the server, all SNMP timeouts are extended by a factor of four (timeout X 4) to allow for the delays incurred by redirecting requests through the server.
SNMP Retries
The number of attempts ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine makes to contact a device after an attempt at contact fails. The value for this setting must be between 0 and 10 tries.

The value entered in this field overrides the default entered in the SNMP Advanced view in the Administration > Options tab.
Topology Layer
The layer and networking attributes for the device.
Collection Mode
Select None, Threshold Alarms, or Historical from the check box Mode drop-down menu to indicate the mode to collect device statistics.
Collection Interval (minutes)
Select the interval at which device and statistics are collected. Extreme sets a minimum check box interval of five minutes and a maximum of 1440 minutes (24 hours).

Device Annotation

The Device Annotation tab allows you to add user-defined information about the device. Asset tag, User Data 1-4, and Device Note information saved on this tab is shared with ExtremeCloud IQ.

Device Annotation

Nickname
The user-defined nickname for the selected device. The device nickname, which is used only by ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine and is not stored on the device, displays when you select Nickname in the Name Format section on Administration > Options tab.
Asset Tag

Indicates whether an IGMP Query has been enabled.
Virtual Routing
Displays the version of VRRP the default gateway is using:
  • NONE — Virtual routing is not configured on the VLAN.
  • VRRPv2 — VRRP version 2 is configured on the VLAN. VRRP version 2 only supports IP addresses in IPv4 format.
  • VRRPv3 — VRRP version 3 is configured on the VLAN. VRRP version 3 supports IP addresses in both IPv4 and IPv6 formats.
  • DvRDvR is configured on the VLAN. There are several requirements that must be met to configure DvR on a VLAN, including:
    • The VLAN must have an IP address and prefix.
    • The DvR IP address must be IPv4.
    • The DvR IP address must fall within the VLAN's subnet.
    • The DvR IP address cannot be reused across multiple VLANs on the device.
    • The VLAN must have an L2VSN associated with it.
    • If the VLAN is using on a non-zero VRF ID, the VLAN must also have:
      1. An L3VSN associated with the VRF.
      2. The VRF must have the unicast option enabled.
    • Devices participating in DvR as controllers must have non-zero IPv4 ISIS Source Addresses.
    • Devices participating in DvR must have IPv4 Shortcuts and Multicast enabled.
  • RSMLT — Routing Redundancy Method is configured on the VLAN. RSMLT requires that a Virtual IST is configured. If the device is not configured as a vIST pair, RSMLT can be selected, but the feature is not active. Once the vIST is configured, RSMLT becomes active.
 NOTES : Virtual Routing is only supported on VOSS/Fabric Engine devices.

VOSS/Fabric Engine devices support a new "dvr-one-ip" feature in the 8.2 release that allows you to share an IP address between a VLAN and its DvR interface. ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine currently does not support the "dvr-one-ip" feature and cannot read or enforce configurations of this type. Configure VOSS/Fabric Engine device IP addresses on VLANs and their DvR interfaces through the VLAN Definitions tab.
Virtual Routing Enable
Indicates whether virtual routing is enabled for the VLAN.
Virtual Routing Address
The IP address for the virtual routing interface. The Virtual Routing address must be in the same subnet as the VLAN subnet address.
VRRP ID
An identifier devices use to determine peer devices that participate in a VRRP (Virtual Routing Redundancy Protocol) virtual routing interface.
VRRP Priority
A value used by VRRP peers to determine the role of each of the devices in the VLAN. The default value is 100. The device with the largest value is assigned the role of Controller. For example, in a VLAN with two routers, one with a VRRP Priority of 200 and one with a VRRP Priority of 100, the router with a VRRP Priority of 200 becomes the Controller. In the event of identical priority numbers, the devices use the MAC address to determine priority.
VRRP Backup Master
This option determines if the backup router is able to forward traffic independently outside of the VLAN (enabled), or must forward the traffic to the Controller router before it is forwarded outside of the VLAN (disabled).
VRRP Advertisement Interval
Indicates frequency (in seconds) that protocol packets are sent from the virtual router in the VLAN.
VRRP Hold Down Timer
Indicates the amount of time (in hundredths of a second) that the backup router waits for the primary router to respond before it becomes the primary router.
DHCP Relay
Indicates whether a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol relay server is enabled for the VLAN. A DHCP relay receives and converts a DHCP broadcast message to dynamically assign an IP address to a device on the network.
DHCP Relay Servers
The IP addresses of the DHCP relay servers for the VLAN.
 NOTE:Select Manage to open the Manage DHCP Relay Servers window, where you can add or delete DHCP relay servers.
DHCP Snooping
Indicates whether DHCP snooping is enabled for the VLAN. DHCP Snooping is a Layer 2 security feature, that provides network security by filtering untrusted DHCP messages received from the external network causing traffic attacks within the network. DHCP Snooping is based on the concept of trusted versus untrusted switch ports. Switch ports configured as trusted can forward DHCP Replies, and the untrusted switch ports cannot. DHCP Snooping acts like a firewall between untrusted hosts and DHCP servers.
ARP Inspection
Indicates whether ARP inspection is enabled. Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI) is a security feature that validates ARP packets in the network. Without DAI, a malicious user can attack hosts, switches, and routers connected to the Layer 2 network by poisoning the ARP caches of systems connected to the subnet, and intercepting traffic intended for other hosts on the subnet. DAI prevents these attacks by intercepting, logging, and discarding the ARP packets with invalid IP to MAC address bindings. The switch dynamically builds the address binding table from the information gathered from the DHCP requests and replies when DHCP Snooping is enabled. The switch pairs the MAC address from the DHCP request with the IP address from the DHCP reply to create an entry in the DHCP binding table. When you enable DAI, the switch filters ARP packets on untrusted ports based on the source MAC and IP addresses seen on the switch port. The switch forwards an ARP packet when the source MAC and IP address matches an entry in the address binding table. Otherwise, the switch drops the ARP packet.
 NOTE:DHCP Snooping must be enabled to use ARP Inspection.

CLIP Addresses

Use the CLIP Addresses tab to add, edit or delete IPv4 and IPv6 CLIP Addresses to your device.

Device ID
The ID address of the device to which the CLIP address is assigned.

 NOTE:If SLPP is enabled, SLPP Guard is not available.
SLPP Guard
Indicates whether SLPP Guard is enabled on the port. Use SLPP Guard to provide additional loop protection to protect wiring closets from erroneous connections. SLPP Guard requires SLPP to be enabled. SLPP detects loops in an SMLT network. Because SMLT networks disable Spanning Tree (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP), or Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) for participating ports, SLPP Guard provides additional network loop protection, extending the loop detection to individual edge access ports. SLPP Guard can be configured on MLT or LAG ports. If the edge switch with SLPP Guard enabled receives an SLPP-PDU packet on a port, SLPP Guard operationally disables the port for the configured timeout interval in the SLPP Guard Timer field and appropriate log messages and SNMP traps are generated. If the disabled port does not receive any SLPP-PDU packets after the configured timeout interval expires, the port automatically reenables and generates a local log message, a syslog message, and SNMP traps, if configured.
 NOTE:If SLPP Guard is enabled, SLPP is not available
SLPP Guard Timer
Indicates the amount of time after receiving an SLPP packet before the port is reenabled.
VPEX Type
Indicates how this port is used to connect a port extender to a controlling bridge or another port extender:
  • Cascade — Traffic leaving this port is moving away from the controlling bridge.
  • Uplink — Traffic leaving this port is moving toward the controlling bridge.
  • None — The port is not included in connecting the extended bridge components.
 NOTE:If the VPEX Type is Cascade or Uplink, you are unable to configure PVID, Tagged VLANs, and Untagged VLANs.
PoE Enable
Indicates that power over ethernet (PoE) is enabled for the port.
PoE Priority
Indicates the priority of PoE for the port; LOW, HIGH, or CRITICAL.
