Suggest optimal child subnet within a parent

Suggest optimal child subnet within a parent

Thanks to feedback from Mark O’Brien, we are happy to announce a new feature for you to find the optimal nested subnet within a parent. With this feature, you can find a child subnet for a particular mask while maintaining the maximum availability for other higher mask bit subnets. You can either see a tree view of what is available with its impact or you can have the system choose the optimal one for you.

Custom fields for IPs, Subnets and Purchase

You can now add custom fields for IP addresses, subnets and Purchase records. These come with API support as well.

Reserve an IP when making the suggest IP API call

The Suggest IP API call can result in lock condition, where if multiple calls are made at same time, the same IP can be given to those calls to be reserved. We have added a new parameter “reserve_ip”. If you pass reserve_ip with value of ‘yes’ to the suggest IP API call, it will reserve the suggested IP. This takes care of the possible lock condition.

Auto-discovery support for lantronix console server and sun blade servers

You can now discover your Lantronix console servers (using other SNMP discovery) and Sun blade servers (using Blade SNMP discovery).

v3 support for NFS backup – for windows based NFS server

You can now do NFS backups to v3 NFS servers. This is particularly helpful if you enabling NFS support on windows servers.

API Changes

  • subnet GET call gets new filters like mask_bits, parent_vlan, description etc.
  • subnet GET call outputs the value of parent_vlan_name and parent_vlan_number and custom fields.
  • suggest next IP call takes reserve_ip as yes to reserve that IP

Bug Fixes

  • IBM Blade center discovery failed for blades for certain models. Now fixed.
  • Search for on screen reports for columns was not working correctly. Now fixed.
  • Re-importable export for subnets was missing the ID and hence didn’t update subnets correctly. Now fixed.
