Objective
Use Netsight to find  installed switch when IP address is not known.
Environment
  • Netsight
  • Ethernet switch recently or previously installed in network
  • IP address of  switch is not known
Procedure
Use Netsight Console Discovery feature to search for IP address range or subnet.
Additional notes
  • Results will produce list of nodes that respond showing IP address, device type, and MAC address for each.
