Support for new devices via SNMP auto-discovery in v14.17.1

We are excited to announce general availability of v14.17.1 with the following changes:

 

SNMP changes

We have expanded SNMP auto-discovery to support a few new devices. In addition, we’ve also improved support for some existing devices so they’re imported more accurately.  The following highlights some of these additions:

  • Cisco 6509 switches in VSS mode
  • HPE Gen 10 DL380
  • Infoblox devices such as IB-820
  • Eaton UPS and Eaton ATS support
  • HP LaserJet support
  • HP 3PAR storage devices

 

v14.17 is Migration-Ready for the Upcoming v15

We are very excited to announce that the next major release (v15.00.000) of Device42 is around the corner. It is packed with many product improvements, one of those being a change from Ubuntu to CentOS. As such, this will be the last upgrade that supports the current architecture as we finalize migration procedures for the new architecture. Device42 v15 will be deployed as a new appliance, and you can simply utilize the built-in Backup/Restore functionality to migrate your current data to the new architecture.

Please note: We’ve updated to 14.17.1, which is the latest and last planned Ubuntu-based release and is the only version we plan on supporting for migration to v15. Be sure to update!

 

Convert legacy Power SNMP jobs to latest SNMP Autodiscovery

We will be removing all support for the legacy Monitoring Appliance in v15+ [it will no longer function]. In preparation for this changes, we are facilitating the migration of existing legacy Power SNMP jobs to the latest SNMP Auto-Discovery in v14.17.1.

To access your existing legacy jobs, visit TOOLS>Auto-Discovery>Power (SNMP), select all the jobs you want to convert, select the “Convert selected jobs to SNMP” action, and simply click “Go!

We have added the option to include your SSH Key pairs in your Database Backup. You now also have the option to restore those SSH Keys, allowing you to easily migrate your backup jobs to the latest v15.00.00 appliance [once it becomes available].
