after a firmware update of a Cisco Catalyst L3 switch the WEb GUI still shows the previous old internal device description of the device. However, the operating time of the device is shown correctly. How can I update this information manually or automatically without restarting Path Insight?
A restart of the Path Insight helped. But I would expect an autonomic rescan here.
Here's a short video on re-running the Quick Config Wizard to rescan the network that should make Path Insight pick up the changes in networks / network devices.
Steps in this video:
1. run the Quick Config Wizard on the Path Insight server console.
2. add network IP address range if necessary.
3. Wait for the scan to complete. This will take a while - have a look at teh system time in this video to get an indication.
4. Back in Path Insight web pages, it should automatically refresh and you're good to go.
