Hey, thanks. I haven't really had a need to play with exporting beyond the odd export for reports.

Locking users to panels/views

Hi,

sorry if this has been asked before.

Is there a way to lock a user(s) (read-only) to a certain view of panel?
I have managers that want to see certain parts of the network via the dude but I don't want/need them to view anything else on the dude.

Thanks.

Re: Thicko - well feel like one

What OS are you trying to monitor?
Windows: Make sure the IP address of the Dude server is listed as allowed to talk to the SNMP service
Windows: Windows firewall allowing SNMP traffic

Linux: SNMP is running and not locked down to local traffic requests?

Ok, how about this...

Can you think of any way to present all associations to all access points in one central location, like a simple list or a single label?

All cisco access points, 1240s and 1130s.
So solutions inside and outside the dude are welcomed.

Depending on the device type will depend on how helpful and obvious the interface names are.

If you need it for CPU I guess you will have to fudge it but creating a probe that gives you an output of 100% all the time for you to graph against.

You could always install VMWARE or another virtual server system on top and run another OS in a VM.

I believe I might have got this fixed now - the default on these devices was to create an "Object Identifier" which actually means a "view" - this defualt view wasn't allowing anything to be returned.
