cisco switch ports not detected using auto discovery

When running the auto-discovery on a stack of 6 Cisco 3750's, several of the active ports were not recognized or added to the list of sensors for that device. Rerunning auto-discovery did not add the switch ports either.

How can I correct this and get the switches added.

Dear Mark,

just to check, can you add sensors for those ports manually? Please also check if the option "Skip Auto-Discovery for known devices/IPs" is enabled in the group where the Auto-Discovery takes places.

Best Regards.

Hello, I encounter maybe a similar issue for different models of Cisco switches ( 3560, 9300, 3850 ). When using auto-discovery , the ports are discovered but the port number is not displayed. Instead of Gi1/0/5 for example I see 10105. this feature used to work with previous versions of PRTG.

Hi there,

We have addressed this issue in the latest release:
https://www.paessler.com/prtg/history/stable
SNMP CISCO SYSTEM HEALTH
SNMP Cisco System Health sensors get correct names and units again after sensor creation. In previous versions, all channels except for the first one were only named by the index of the OID in certain cases.

Best regards.
